Watch out, Busch Stadium drunks, because that's not a bird or a plane. That's St. Louis' very own Superman.
Superman, a.k.a. Charlie Chartland, swooped in and broke up a fight between two overzealous baseball fans on Thursday, and Matt Sebek, of the sports humor site Joe Sports Fan, happened to catch it all on video.

The drunk man tries to pull Superman's cape out from under him, earning him a harsh rebuke from the caped crusader: "You need to get lost, all right? You need to get lost."
