Try this one on for size (no pun intended), a dead Puerto Rican man was dressed as the Green Lantern and propped upright for his wake. He spent the last few weeks of his life in the iconic green costume made famous by DC’s popular comic book character The Green Lantern.

As cited by NYDailyNews:

“Renato Garcia, 50, passed away last week in the Rio Piedras neighborhood of San Jose, where friends and neighbors saw him wearing the costume for weeks after he found it in a bag of donated clothes, according to his sister. As in life, so in death, she decided. “He was always very helpful,” his sister, Milagros Garcia, told Primera Hora. “You beckoned and he was always there.”

It is a nice gesture then I guess? Which superhero would you like to be propped as when hades comes knocking?
