Is the Iceman a Real Life Superhero?

Wim “Iceman” Hof possesses the ability to control his body through just the power of his mind. He currently holds 18 world records for his daredevil activities including being immersed in an ice bath for 1 hour, 13 minutes and 48 seconds. His superpower abilities come into play when Hof is able to keep his core temperature at a steady rate during the entire immersion and his heart rate remains constant.

Hof has continuously stunned science and medicine by mentally controlling his body’s thermostat which prevents his body from entering the hypothermia state. The Iceman also ran a half marathon above the polar circle in negative 35 degree temperatures, barefoot, and wearing only a pair of shorts. Is he a real life superhero? Hof possesses abnormal abilities to keep him-self alive and unharmed in extreme circumstances, and he has mastered the art of mind over matter.
