Not only is Christopher Douglas making the world a little safer as a police officer in Midlothian, Texas, he also cheers up pediatric patients at a local hospital by visiting them dressed up as Captain America.
Christopher has become a sort of a celebrity in his town, where people joke that Captain America is his alter ego. He loves it, though. In fact, he even went to a local custom car painter to give his truck a Captain America makeover.
Christopher talked to Nick Daryanani of ‘Jekyll and Hyde’s Custom Car Wrap’ about his idea to turn his Chevy Silverado into something a little more Captain America themed. Nick is well known for his work, and was excited to do this job, not just because it’s fun, but because of who it was for.

To Nick, Christopher isn’t just someone who dresses up as a superhero, he is a superhero. He told a local news outlet, “The real hero in him is going out and changing those kids’ lives.”
When Christopher went to the big reveal, he was completely stunned by the work Nick had done.
It was so incredible that it brought him to tears. So, not only did Nick give Christopher’s truck an amazing custom wrap, he also did it free of charge.
For Nick, the decision to give his services for free was a no-brainer. He said, “Now when he goes back out there and he’s got the truck and he’s in the outfit, I’m sure a bunch of kids will have smiles on their faces when they see it. That means more to us than anything else.”
Once it all settled in, Christopher soaked up how his small acts of kindness led him to this point where his community appreciates him so much. He said, “Hopefully everybody seeing this will make them want to do something positive for somebody else without getting something back other than pure inner joy” and that”It can be an endless cycle of positivity and love, if you let it.”
