Real Life Super Heroes

Phoenix Jones and The Rain City Superhero Movement

I recently learned that there are real life super heroes in America. I was amazed by some of the stories that I had heard about on TV. There are currently 300 registered masked superheroes in the US alone.The phenom is so big that HBO aired a documentary special on it on August 08, 2012.

In Seattle there's a figured called Phoenix Jones (24 yo Benjamin John Francis Fodor) and he fights crime by means of a stun enabled baton, pepper spray and mix martial arts skills. Phoenix is also known as Flattop, a mix martial arts fighter with a 15-0 record. Phoenix Jones is a regular guy during the day working with his community helping kids. During the night serving as the leader of The Rain City Superhero Movement. He becomes a masked man tuning into police scanners awaiting a vigilant moment. Phoenix is not alone in his ventures, his girlfriend is also a masked avenger by the tag Purple Rein.

Aside of the masked couple exist other members to the Seattle & Washington Superhero movement. Presently officials have identified ten citizens patrolling the city of Seattle in superhero costumes, using the names Thorn, Buster Doe, Green Reaper, The Mantis, Gemini, No Name, Catastrophe, Thunder 88, Penelope, Phoenix Jones, Red Dragon, Midnightjack, Karma, SkyMan, El Caballero. and Purple Reign who works mainly on intelligence and advocacy against domestic violence.

There have been many instances in which citizens attest their bravery and then there has been criticism as to their agenda. Whatever the case may be, criminals are fully aware of their presence and for the most part citizens welcome their stance.

The superhero phenom is not limited to NW United States. They are all over the world and their numbers are growing. For the most part most of them are socially involved with programs in their communities and do not defy their kind as vigilantes.

The last 10-20 years have been theatrical for the superheroes story. Some stories have been retold and revised with precision. This has inspired real life humans to want to be like their cartoon counterparts.

This is awesome. The only thing missing are superpowers, but they are compensating nicely with skills and attitude.
