The World Needs More Heroes

Real-Life Super Heroes Strike Again in Seattle

phoenix jones, seatlle, super heroWe once ran a very fun slideshow of a variety of modern-day, real-life super heroes, all of whom put on costumes and go fight crime in their cities. Today, there is a news report of another hero (not pictured above) operating in Seattle. Phoenix Jones, a member of the Rain City Superheroes (no website), recently scared away a would-be car thief. Jones wears a custom suit "including bullet-proof vest and stab plates" and caries a Taser and Mace. But being a super hero without super powers can be difficult:
Phoenix said since he started his crime-fighting crusade nine months ago, he's been stabbed, and had a gun pulled on him a few times, but received no serious injuries.
