    Gezere :
    That's why I figured Hawkeye was an achievable goal, I'm not a drunken arms dealer or the liking god of thunder, and probably never will be, but guy who is a good shot with a bow? That might be doable.
    Rivington :
    I was actually thinking of picking up the Colonel, since KFC and ole miss don't want to use his image anymore. Dressing as Colonel Reb would certainly lure those likely to commit violent acts out of hiding when I began patrolling high crime areas.

    Apparently I have a crush on Rivington. There's a tasteless joke about seamen somewherein your new avatar but i will refrain from making it because it'd be too easy. Any of you lesser jokesters want to pick that low hanging fruit, go right ahead.

    Looking though the RLSH site, I have to say this is my favorite moron:
    http://www.reallifesuperheroes.com/2010/10/26/ragensi/

    A paranormal investigator AND a Randroid. Awesome. Also, he clearly wears that bandana to hide his double-chin.

    Anyway, on to the central question—seems like most RLSH just do homeless outreach or support some cause. The costume is just a sliver of spectacle, a way to get media attention. Some of them are stupid enough to mix it up with street criminals, having failed to understand the basics of superheroing. Step #1 to doing it successfully is to have an omnipotent artist pre-arrange the geography of nearby rooftops and alleys perfectly to suit a quick strike and immediate exit. One would think that Phoenix Jones, with all his traffic violations, would finally figure out that you can't actually Batmobile around a city in his wife's Toyota and get away with it. So the RLSHers who want to fight just seem to waddle around dicey neighborhoods, looking to encounter something. Better than getting a police scanner and hoping to beat the fuzz to the scene, I suppose.

    For those who continue to give the RLSHers the benefit of the doubt, check out this comment:

    Hey Zero you inspired me to become a guardian like you ppl. I live in germany and i got in trouble with some dudes which looked for trouble and this made me real angry. I want to help ppl in similar situations. I will learn wing tsu and buy 2 batons/tonfas.

    I am pretty sure Zero came to my open mat as well with the whole "New York Initiative" group. If it was him, we did not get along very well. They were going to do a first responder training at my gym (I had no idea who they were), and Zero was the point man I was aranging with. I offered my place because I was going to get all my coached trained up. But, alas, they could not get their **** together and we ended up having a pretty nasty beef over his totally unprofessional attempt to work with me and organize this thing. I basically tod him to F off (and he to me...LOL).

    I think the problem has something to do with the investigator tag Steve turned in last year. Coincidentally, he's had some contact with these folks and provided certain information that might be used in a MABS thread, but I doubt you'd ever get him leading an investigation again; maybe if one of his old investigations (Sonnon, Blythe) came alive... but not a new one.

    Steve, the problem is Bullshido is not a community that follows set principles, or has set values; it just responds to whatever resonates. Based on past reasons for past investigations, this subject probably warrants an investigation. But it doesn't work like that. Bullshido is not like the police department, or even POWNET; it really just gets random hard ons and then follows it's dick.

    I don't even see why we SHOULD care about these guys? I don't see any kind of fraud at all and they might be doing some good. The only bad thing I see coming is a unnecessary law banning RLSH whenever one of them gets killed or ruins an investigation/police arrest.
