Real-Life Seattle Superhero Not So Super [VIDEO]
It started a few months ago in Seattle, when would-be masked crusaders came out of the woodwork, taking on crime in the city (and in one instance bravely stopping a man who was exposing himself on a city bus). So how are the heroes doing now?
To put it bluntly: not so super. Just ask "Phoenix Jones, the Guardian of Seattle," who got clocked in the face and threatened with a gun over the weekend when he tried to break up a downtown fight.
Seattle police told Jones and the handful of other would-be crime-fighters to put down the nun-chucks and dial 911 next time they spot trouble.
The best quote of the ordeal came this frustrated Seattle police detective: "Does Superman get his ass kicked? These people should not be called superheroes." Well said.
