March 11 (UPI) -- A 7-year-old comic book fan from India broke a Guinness World Record by identifying 60 DC Comics characters from photos in one minute.

The boy earned a Guinness World Record, beating the previous mark of 52 characters identified in one minute.

"I actually wanted to try on Marvel because I like Spider-Man, but everyone preferred DC, so, I, too, agreed. It took around a month for me to prepare. Initially it was all confusing, but as I started to learn, I began remembering the names. When I managed to set the record, I was elated. It was a great experience. I hope to break this record, too, sometime, soon," Nidhish told The Times of India.
