Before Blackhawks All-Star forward Patrick Kane turned into Superman, he preferred the look of the Caped Crusader. He wanted to be like Batman when he was a kid.

"Everywhere we went, he wore one of my hats and a black cape," Kane's mother, Donna, told the Sun-Times Sunday at Scotiabank Place. "Then he'd have a Batman T-shirt on and Batman sneakers and maybe a sword or something. Everywhere he went, he had it on."

To Kane's parents, Donna and Pat Sr., what their eldest child did in the skills competition with the Superman cape and exploding puck was true to his fun-loving and competitive personality. He wanted to win and have fun doing so.
