Sometimes, Daniel is not Daniel. He dons a mask and cape and transforms into another being altogether: Super Saver. He likes to "save the city" and other similarly noble deeds. He is focused, selfless, heroic and great with a sword.
The best part is that Super Saver is careful to reveal his true identity to anyone he thinks might be confused at the sudden absence of Daniel. He just lifts up his mask and stares knowingly at you until you say something to the effect of, "Daniel? That's you? I thought you were gone!"
Super Saver might have saved the city, but he has stolen my heart.
