The world has read the adventures of Superman, Spiderman, Wonderwoman, Batman and other American superheroes and now, perhaps, it\’s time for Kazakhstan\’s Astanaman.
Competitors can choose the story behind the character, his or her appearance and special traits but the organisers insist that as well as being named after the capital city the superhero must also represent Kazakh national characteristics.
Special power: Knows who to bribe
Activities: Theft of businesses from those who do not pay appropriate bribes.

Anything else anyone deem appropriate?
