He isn't a typical super hero because he's a fat robotic cat, but he is - basically his purpose is to save a kid from having his life turn out bad and he uses the stuff in his special magic pocket to do this.
There's all sorts of things in his special pocket, like an anywhere door, that he pulls out and can go anywhere. It would be very handy.
If I had to pick another super hero I'd go for MacGuyver. I don't think he even needs much of an explanation - seriously, is there anything he can't do!?!
When I lived in Japan it used to be on cable a million times a week so I developed a bit of a soft spot for him - I even used to have the theme song as my ring tone.
