Real Life Super Heroes in Seattle?Posted by Brett Tousley on Saturday, November 20th, 2010 at 12:17pm.
Yes, apparently there is a group of real life superheroes patrolling the mean streets of Seattle. Armed only with pepper spray and fancy costumes, these heroes are working to keep criminals on the run.
I saw this story on the local news last night and just had to learn a little more about this group.
It's easy to make fun of caped do gooders running around the city in spandex outfits and masks, but after a bit more research, I found they are legitimately doing some good.
Since they lack any true super powers, they can only be so effective against street crime. Without spider sense, super human strength and unnatural regenerative powers, confronting potentially armed punks is dangerous business.
The groups true power comes from their message of community involvement and reaching out to those in need.
If you take the time to read the profiles of several real life super heroes on their website http://www.reallifesuperheroes.com/ you'll see that there is more to their cause than a flashy costume and chiseled good looks. Many provide services and supplies to the homeless or visit sick kids in the hospital as part of their mission. What kid wouldn't want a visit from a real life super hero?
I'm pretty sure their secret lair is located somewhere in Fremont. :)
