KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There are fans and then there are die-hard fans. FOX 4 caught up with one getting ready for the Royals game Wednesday night.

Some superheroes save the world; others pump up the Royals crowd. That's what KC Super Fan is all about. Under all that paint is Chris Stone.

"I'm hoping to do this my whole life. I want to be KC Super Fan my whole life," he said.

The transformation begins with a few essentials: blue pants, a Royals jersey and most importantly, the super hero cape. The war paint – blue and white stripes – can take hours to perfect, but he's got it down to a science.

KC Super Fan emerged just this year because Stone didn't see enough support for the baseball team.

"I dress up for Chiefs games, and I got that reaction, so I just wanted to experiment to see what it's like at Royals games. So I try it one day and we were like the big guys on campus, it was awesome," said Stone.

It's become his signature. Stone tries to make it out to every Royals game dressed head to toe in blue. He's what you call… a die-hard sports fan.

"If you cut me open right here, it bleeds blue. Cut me open right here bleeds red and gold and that's me," Stone said as he raised his arms.

But every super hero has a Kryptonite. For KC Super Fan, it's got to be the heat.

"Day games are the worst. Sunday afternoon 1:10... good night," said Stone.

His makeup might be melting and he might be burning up under the football pads, be Stone says it's a small price to pay.
