Real Life Superheroes Hit The Streets Of Seattle!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!

real life superheroes take to the streets of seattle

Kick-Ass would be proud!

In Seattle, a group of "superheroes" have taken to the streets to fight crime.

They refer to themselves as the Rain City Superhero Movement, and they say they're part of a nationwide movement of superheroes.

Here's what the "movement's" national website describes a superhero as:

"A Real Life Superhero is whoever chooses to embody the values presented in super heroic comic books, not only by donning a mask/costume, but also performing good deeds for the communitarian place whom he inhabits."

Good to hear that you need to do more than JUST wear the mask/costume!

Seattle police are concerned that these "superheroes" will get hurt though, and they are investigating the situation.

Thus far, investigators have identified nine superheroes, who go by the names Thorn, Buster Doe, Green Reaper, Gemini, No Name, Catastrophe, Thunder 88, Penelope and Phoenix Jones, the Guardian of Seattle.

There are two other superheroes, Captain Ozone and Knight Owl, but they AREN'T part of the group!

Here's what Seattle Police Department spokesman Jeff Kappel had to say about these superheroes:

"There's nothing wrong with citizens getting involved with the criminal justice process — as long as they follow it all the way through."

Kappel continued to say that they should call 9-1-1 and NOT put themselves in danger.

We completely agree, but we have a feeling these Seattle "superheroes" have other plans.

Hopefully nobody gets TOO hurt. This is seriously DANGEROUS business! Did these superheroes not see Kick-Ass?

Do U support vigilante superhero justice? Or do U think they should leave it to the police?

    WOOooooo GO SEATTLE SUPER HEROES!! I live near Seattle. I would love to see one of these Super Heroes in real life. I wonder if they have a website. I wanna see what they look like!

    "…but also performing good deeds for the communitarian place whom he inhabits."

    Ah, not very articulate…bit of a red flag.

    First off, Kick Ass was a stupid movie.
    Second, the moment one of these obnxious fucks get themselves killed, that "superhero" shit will stop.
    Last, but not least, does anyone in this country live in reality anymore?



  4. 4

    I would have to say that as long as they mean well, go for it. The police can't do it all….

    LOL that's actually pretty awesome. Until they run into someone with a gun…



  6. 6

    They should be allowed to do whatever they want, but I'm sure the police will end up stopping them because the police control our every move.

    I MET ONE OF THESE GUYS! he came in to where I work, and was looking for a wetsuit. when i asked why, he told me the whole stroy. i had no idea he was serious until i read this!



  8. 8

    Just like someone said…The second one of these idiots gets killed it'll be over.

    Re: stefystef – You sound like a miserable piece of shit…

    you should go live somewhere else….we don't want you living here if you can't be proud in those who are trying to make a difference.

    Re: NookiesWA

    So let's all sit around and do nothing to help others…..your a loser.

    people die everyday…doubt if it will be that big of a deal.

    They should do something good like put bullies in their place… Stay posted in dark shots where women or college girls can feel safe and help hurt stray animals "there are so many hurt kittens in the city." and things like there where they can be useful. But they need to leave any gun crimes etc. to the police.

    Getting hurt or killed is what happens to heroes. That's why they are heroes. Hopefully technology will somehow help them. Give them gadgets.

    Awesome. The boys in blue should have jumped on this and put their own trained guys on it, as these hooded heroes really could get injured. What a P.R. coupe that would have been.



  14. 14

    I hope "follow it all the way through" doesn't entail murder or something along those lines…



  15. 15

    Seattle has a long history of vigilante justice, so this doesn't surprise me at all.



  16. 16

    I see several lawsuits brewing over this…. especially if they target only a few minority groups.



  17. 17

    I live in Seattle, and I definitely wish these people well. With all of the police violence that's been happening here (police being murdered, and police killing people that may or may not have been a real threat) and crime getting worse, something has to happen. I don't know if this is it, but I appreciate that they're actually trying. I just hope they don't become targets, because unfortunately I think that's probably what's going to happen, and probably for the police as well as the criminals. I hope they're prepared for that.



  18. 18

    Aw man that is so freaking cool!!!!! I was wondering when a group of people would FINALLY do something like this.. i mean its bound to happen~ the only thing is knight owl isnt very original… rip off of nite owl from watchmen? me thinks so.



  19. 19

    I live in Seattle too. I hadn't heard anything about this. Kinda glad I did. If I was a victim of a crime and some "masked superhero" attempted to jump in and help me…..I would have maced his happy ass too and beat him with my stiletto as well. Guess now I'll give him a chance as he may have been attempting to rescue me.

    Re: URwhatUeat – No I'm just not a delusional twat. Attempting to "help" someone while something like that happens is just down right dumb. You don't know if that person is carrying a knife or a gun. It's better to just back off get a description of them possibly a video/picture and call the police. ROFL yeah I'm not even going to argue with your stupid ass LOLOL. I'm not getting shot/stabbed only to have to pay 100+ THOUSAND in hospital bills only for a hundred bucks in some ladies purse that just got ripped off trying to help. You can "help" your city a 390482 different ways. Dressing up like a "super hero" and attempting to fight crime is just retarded. Not to mention seeing people in black ski mask would just cause suspicion anyways. They can join the neighborhood watch. They can volunteer for community work. and *GASP* maybe even tryout for the police department? Yeah you're dumb. Don't spend too much time on celebrity gossip sites it'll rot what little brain you have left.



  21. 21

    what the? the place whom he inhabits?



  22. 22

    Make them sign death/injury waivers forbidding them from suing all state and local authorities including hospitals, etc., for their heroic but stupid actions in. Reducing crime. Let them use non-lethal weapons such as riot control equipment to stop the criminals from getting away with crime while following all laws. Like police are supposed to do. Let them live their dream even if it gets them put in the hospital or worse. At least they aren't asking for donations or money, yet. Remember that part about a Free Country? Just don't kill a hero's dreams b/c you are worried about him. Otherwise why else would they volunteer themselves to a noble cause? My "masks off" to you all. And stop being so anal about the way people choose to live. Its their life. Peace. I'm out.

    AWESOME, let them become heroes for the people!! However, as much as I appreciate their courage, I hope they have enough related skills to defend themselves from dangerous criminals.
    For those who critique these guys: Even if they die, I'm sure they've known the consequences before becoming the community's hero. Yes, there are other ways to contribute, but becoming a superhero is how they want to help. From my personal Point of View, it's a creative idea and hopefully the members will expand. The police have their own weaknesses (possibilities of corruption, inefficiencies, etc.), and when spread widely and having had a better selection of skills, an independent organization formed of civilians purely motivated to help (that comes from their humble experience as a troubled citizen themselves) might create a better safe environment. Those who want to join but are not experienced in martial arts can probably help in other fields, e.g. help a bullied kid, give free counseling to depressed citizens, etc.

    they just want the fame



  25. 25

    I live in Seattle and I'm totally stoked. Lately our cops have been kinda on edge since the Lakewood murders so there's a ton of investigations over unnecessary force, so I'm hoping that this will raise people's spirits in Seattle and make them feel a little bit more protected. I think all these people are bad ass and yes I hope none of them get hurt, but they're still freaking epic.

    If detectives can dress like hookers, cops can dress like super heroes. Heaven knows the world needs a lift.

    Re: NookiesWA – You're right, you are just a twat, period. Yeah, go ahead and hide in a corner while someone gets beaten, robbed, or even killed. better not put yourself in harms way to help a fellow human being out. Self preservation, the battle cry of the weak and self-centered like yourself. By the sounds of your comments, letting you get killed would actually benefit society. So please, by all means, do nothing. I hope the person in position to help you when you need it heeds your sound advise, and just looks the other way.

    Re: Unbelievable! – Oh look another idiot.
