James Hashimoto is just your average 5 year old with superpowers. The pint-sized superhero stars in the popular youtube channel "Action Movie Kid."

His dad, Daniel Hashimoto (also known as the coolest dad ever) is a special effects whiz who has worked on hits such as Kung Fu Panda 2. He uses his skills to spice up his kids' playtime to epic proportions.

Hashimoto uses his smartphone to capture regular moments at home and then adds the effects in to give his son superpowers, make him scale buildings, and fight dinosaurs.

Hashimoto told CBS the idea came to him during a typical moment at home, "He was pretending to be Ironman and blasting up the kitchen. And I thought, it would be so fun to add some graphics to this and then show them to him so he could see what he's like being a real superhero."

The results were unbelievable, and you have to see it to believe it. Millions of viewers have watched James battle robots, get into light saber fights, and completely destroy his house with his out-of-control powers.
