In the latest installment of Phil Fills In, Phil Sanchez loses the suit and tie for a red cape and heads to WakeMed

This was the second year that WakeMed provided a superhero surprise for some of its younger patients. Like journalist Clark Kent, Phil transformed into Superman. But he wasn’t alone; Batman, Iron Man and Spiderman were also on hand as they scaled down the side of WakeMed.
