More Real Life Kick-Ass!

Holy shiz! This is so insane!

As we reported back in November, residents of Seattle, WA may sleep a little more soundly at night, because there are reportedly not just one, but a TEAM of super heroes, called The Rain City Superhero Movement, patrolling the streets and fighting crime!

Check out this clip (above) of one such man, known as Phoenix Jones, actually opening up to the press about his crime-fighting!

He explains:

"When I walk into a neighborhood, criminals leave because they see the suit. I symbolize that the average person doesn't have to walk around and see bad things and do nothing. I don't condone people walking around on the street with masks. Everyone on my team either has a military background or a mixed martial arts background, and we're well aware of what it costs to do what we do."

Oh man. Check out that costume.

That's some serious commitment!

We just hope that these guys actually do know what they're doing, and don't get in over their heads!

Thoughts??

Move Over, Kick-Ass! Man Changes His Name To Captain Awesome!

man legally changes his name to captain awesome

This is absolutely HIGHlarious!

Oregon man Douglas Allen Smith Jr. has legally changed his name to Captain Awesome!

Captain has said that his name change was influenced by a character on NBC's Chuck, whose name is Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb.

Wow! Last week we found out that Chuck was the most pirated TV show, and now this! What a bizarrely influential TV show!

Here's what Captain Awesome had to say about the character that inspired him:

"I just thought it was really funny that Devon's father always called him Captain Awesome because 'a poor nickname builds good character."

He may have a superhero-like name, but Captain Awesome is actually an unemployed cabinet installer.

Hopefully now that he's got the name, he'll discover the superhero that he's always had inside of him, and he'll get rid of the crime on the dangerous streets of…Oregon.

OR if he's willing to relocate, perhaps he can get in touch with the Seattle Branch of the Rain City Superhero Movement and work with those guys.

Keep us updated, Captain Awesome! We've got high expectations for you!

If you were to give yourself a Superhero name, what would it be?

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?
