We just heard of this and it's just too good to not share. There have been would-be masked crusaders fighting crime in the Seattle area. You read correctly. There are real-life , costume wearing superheros in this country. In the movies the superheroes generally always win right? What's it like for a real superhero? Video inside.

Just ask “Phoenix Jones, the Guardian of Seattle,” who got clocked in the face and threatened with a gun when he tried to break up a downtown fight this past weekend.

The Seattle Police Officers are declining any help from the superheroes and would prefer the masked men merely do their civic duty by informing the proper authorities.

One  frustrated Seattle police detective was quoted saying “Does Superman get his ass kicked? These people should not be called superheroes.”
