Locals and netizens were amused by the sight of "Captain America" zipping about on a motorcycle in Johor Baru, reported Sinar Harian.
The man behind the mask, 46-year-old fitness instructor Kimberly Lee Tan, said he wanted to mimic his childhood comic superhero idol.
"Since I was a child, I always dreamed of owning such a costume and I eventually fulfilled it. My wife was very understanding of my interest," said Lee, who is of Filipino descent.
Lee, who runs a fitness centre in Taman Nong Chik, said he spent RM5,000 (S$1854) for the leather Captain America costume which he decided to get following the release of the movie The Avengers.
