Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau surprised everyone Tuesday afternoon with his Halloween costume. Trudeau came down the stairs from his third-floor office as usual, just before the beginning of Question Period in the House of Commons dressed as the fabled reporter Clark Kent of The Daily Planet.

Later, he revealed a Superman costume underneath.

But Trudeau’s Superman would not appear to be fighting crime or enforcing truth, justice and the Canadian way. Standing next to her boss in a photograph, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, or “Climate Crusader” as her costumer trumpeted, announced to the world on Twitter Tuesday, “We all need to be superheros in the fight against climate change.”

On his first Halloween in office, he came to work as Han Solo of “Star Wars.”
