The ridiculously good-looking surgery baby: At three-months-old, Joey Powling Jr. had open-heart surgery to save his life. Born with a rare congenital condition, Powling underwent a grueling operation that left him with a scar from his neck to his lower rib cage. His reaction: It's all good. After his mom snapped this photo of her Powling in recovery--smirking like Bruce Willis at the end of a "DieHard" movie--the image went viral and turned this tiny survivor into a meme-worthy superhero.
