    A brief selection of clips designed to show what it takes to launch a one-man war against crime while wearing a uniform bought at Party City.

    I, for one, welcome our super villain overlords.

    Not everyone can be Phoenix Jones.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Do people do this **** in other countries? Or is this a 'merican thang?

    I mean for ****'s sake I read comic books as a kid too...

    Then I grew up.

    On a side note, I think the end of my playing super hero days coincided with the beginning of my interest in girls. I'd be curious to know how many of the 'superhero' set has yet to lose their virginity.

    I can't tell if that is a parody or not.

    I watched the doc Superheroes on Netflix a few weeks ago. It was interesting. I think, pretty clearly, some of them are... crazier? Sadder? I don't know exactly how to describe it.. than others. All of them are trying to do good things, and in fact they do, especially their work with/for the homeless. At least one of them was a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt (or so he claimed). Others were considerably.... less trained.... I definitely recommend the flick though.

    You do get the same sort of spectrum with security guards by the way.

    I've met a fair share of RLSH folks in my day, which should surprise nobody. I even went on patrol with a group of them in Chicago once, under the mask and crown of Super-King, King of Superheroes.
    They range from Delightfully Eccentric to Clearly Off of Their Medication.
