It will go down among the superhero community as the greatest gatecrash ever.
Sutton’s very own superhero SOS produced a performance any crimefighter would envy when he blagged a ticket to the Leicester Square premiere of blockbuster superhero movie Kick-Ass.
Having arrived at the cinema as his civilian alter-ego and failed to talk his way in to the screening, the vigilante nipped into a nearby telephone box and donned his familiar yellow costume.
Within minutes a ticket for the exclusive premiere was thrust into his hand and he was suddenly rubbing shoulders on the red carpet with stars like Brad Pitt and Nicolas Cage.
SOS, who this week was unmasked as 31-year-old Steve Sale, said: “I went down to the cinema in my normal clothes and didn’t really get anywhere so I quickly changed into my SOS outfit and suddenly
everyone was chatting away to me and taking photos.
“Out of nowhere a lady gave me a free ticket. I couldn’t believe it. I met Jonathan Ross, whose wife wrote the screenplay, and mingled with lots of other stars.
