Methinks someone has seen Watchmen one time too fecking many!!

Phoenix Jones: the masked vigilante protecting Lynnwood, Washington

A masked 'superhero' vigilante called Phoenix Jones has taken to protecting the streets of an American town.



By Nick Allen, Los Angeles 5:06PM GMT 06 Jan 2011

Jones, who wears a black and gold costume, patrols the streets of Lynnwood, a town of 35,000 people just outside Seattle, Washington. He wears a bullet proof vest and stab protection under his black and gold outfit, and carries a Taser stun gun and pepper spray. He does not have a fancy vehicle like Batman however, and instead is driven around in a Kia by a female sidekick who does not get out of the car.

The case mirrors that of 'Kick-Ass', last year's Hollywood film directed by Matthew Vaughn, in which an ordinary teenager tries to become a real-life superhero.

The vigilante told a television network that he has been stabbed and threatened with a gun more than once since his crime-fighting crusade began nine months ago.

But he said: "When I walk into a neighbourhood criminals leave because they see the suit. I symbolise that the average person doesn't have to walk around and see bad things and do nothing."

He recently prevented a car theft, chasing away a criminal who was breaking into a vehicle.

A witness said: "From the right, this guy comes dashing in, wearing this black and gold suit, and starts chasing him away."

Jones is thought to be part of a nationwide group called the Rain City Superhero Movement.

Its website says: "A real life Superhero is whoever chooses to embody the values presented in super heroic comic books, not only by donning a mask and costume, but also performing good deeds."

Police say would-be vigilantes dressed in comic book costumes are lucky not to have been mistaken for criminals, and citizens should not put themselves in danger by trying to emulate their fictional heroes.

But Jones, who has been in contact with detectives, said: "Everyone on my team either has a military background or a mixed martial arts background, and we're well aware of what it costs to do what we do."

Wonder when we'll start seeing this shit on our shores ( well maybe not Slaine's Razz), the place could certainly do with a vigilante or two running around kicking the shit out of all those chav's/ned pricks, hell they can do the emo's in as a bonus.

I was thinking more along the lines of if anyone near you dressed like that, they'd probably be bent over and introduced to unlubricated prison sex without actually being in prison.

Ask and you shall receive, although this guy seems a bit of a dick before he even put a costume on.

My superhero son is just naughty boy

THE bank clerk who turns into a secret crime-busting vigilante by night has been unmasked as a big softie - by his MUM.

She said: "He's been a very naughty boy, not telling me he was a superhero."

The Sun told yesterday how beefy Scott Cooke, 26, works in a branch of Santander, advising customers about loans and savings.

But when darkness falls he is on the streets - on a one-man mission to save the world.

The 16st ex-TA soldier dons a mask, Union Jack shirt and a utility belt and prowls Birmingham four nights a week ready to sort out troublemakers and help the needy.

Scott, who calls himself The Statesman, claims he has already helped arrest a drug dealer and foiled a break-in.

Walking a city centre dressed like that takes guts.

"There's an awful lot that boy has to sit down and tell me.

"He can look after himself but he's a big softie to me."

Scott is dubbed The Phan-Tum because of his girth. Dawn said: "He told me, 'Mum, people take the mick, saying I'm fat, but it's what I'm doing that's important."

Scott and Keri, who also works at the bank in Bromsgrove, Worcs, were not at home in West Heath, Birmingham, last night.

But a pal said: "Scott takes it all very seriously. He sees himself as the real deal, vigilante-wise.

"He's not happy with the way our city centres have become full of drunks and troublemakers and wants to help sort it out.

"He's a nice lad and means well. He's on a mission, and that's it."

Funny thing is I have spent a fair bit of time in Brum, still do actually (old army mates were settled there). So I have spent a few nights on the town getting pished, the odd case of fisty cuffs, the odd bit of criminal damage as it seemed funny at the time.

However I have never in all my time across there come across the lard ass in that story, nor ever heard anyone speak of him (in hushed tones or otherwise).

Next time I am across I will gather a few of the lads together, get tanked and then go looking for the super hero .......... to give him a slap on the back and congratulations on being a grade A knob .... no scratch that I mean inspiration to the people. jihad

+ Territorial Army. Laughing Laughing

It would be the traditional Belfast dress of jeans, jacket and a balaclava Lee. Wink

Anyway resurrecting this, as 1. I found another story about some masked gimps and 2. I logged on Xfire at 2200hrs to play BC2 and no one is on so I'm bored. Laughing

Brace yourselves for the Ninja folks, and yes hes fecking English. I mean Americans fair enough they aren't the full fecking shilling at the best of times but really do we need nutters like this running around the streets of the UK .... especially after they started cracking down on the gun laws.

'Ninja' protecting Kent spa town of Tunbridge Wells

He's on fecking Youtube, never has the word Tube been more appropriate in that word! Clicky clicky to see this balloon.

A masked vigilante has taken to the streets of Royal Tunbridge Wells to protect "ordinary citizens".

The "Neighbourhood Ninja" claims to be a 25-year-old who has tackled garage break-ins and conducted night patrols.

The vigilante, who has so far remained anonymous, is posting his exploits in the Kent spa town on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

He also says he has reunited missing cats with their owners and warned drivers when they risk parking fines.
'Ninja recruitment'

Places under official "Ninja Watch" are said to include Homebase, the Bedford Pub, and the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre.

And the Neighbourhood Ninja even claims to be keeping an eye on this week's royal wedding.

In one tweet, he wrote: "Don't worry Chief Inspector of Kent Police, you have nothing to fear from me, I am on your side. I'll leave my nunchuks at home."

He has also said he is "bringing the community together" and could even be looking to recruit more ninjas.

A Kent Police spokeswoman said the force was not aware of the Neighbourhood Ninja and warned residents they should not take the law into their own hands.

'Real life superheroes' fighting crime in New York

A group of crime fighters in New York who dress as superheroes say they patrol the streets of the city "to make life better for everyone".

"If you turn yourself into a nameless symbol, you can stand for so much more than just one person out there."

It sounds like something Batman might say.

The man speaking looks a bit like Batman too, in combat gear and a black leather face mask.

"I'm just a guy in a suit," he says. "But I'm trying to do what we should all do, which is make life better for everyone."

He calls himself Samaritan Prime - they keep their real names and identities secret.

He is part of a group called The New York Initiative and one of hundreds of people around the world who call themselves "real life superheroes".

Crime fighting Hollywood film Kick-Ass is based on them.
'Real life'

The growing movement started in the United States but it now includes people in places like Birmingham and Norwich in the UK.

Tonight, NYI members are patrolling the notorious South Bronx projects, looking for troublemakers and their victims.

Zero and Short Cut are on skateboards, Samaritan rides a bike.

Battlestar, Nitro and Deaths Head Moth are all on foot.

"We find drunks fighting out, domestic abuse, a robbery, anything like that," says Deaths Head Moth.

"I stopped a rape once. A couple of guys were taking a drunk girl home with them.

"They were talking about all the stuff they were going to do to her. I came up and I told them to get away from her."

As we walk, Samaritan plays a mouth organ.
'Unconventional weapons'

"It's more of a weapon than an instrument," he explains and shows how the sharp metal corners can be jabbed into someone's face.

Pointing at Nitro, he says: "My friend here was at the class where I taught unconventional weapons. He can tell you from experience what it's like to be on the wrong side of a harmonica."

Nitro shakes his head: "I do not want to deal with that harmonica ever again."

It's one of a number of items carried by the team that are legal, but can still do damage in a fight.

Some wear studded gloves. One has a long metal torch that can be used as a club.

Deaths Head Moth admits he sometimes uses violence.
Serial killer

"I don't do this to punish the wicked but to protect their victims," he says.

"But some people just don't take kindly to being politely asked to stop what they're doing."

The authorities say crime fighting should be left to the police, although the New York Police Department refused to comment on the group's activities.

Zero is scornful. "Check the stats," he says. "They don't show up."

A serial killer has been targeting prostitutes in New York. The team's offering protection to women who think they're at risk.

"We're doing what we can," says Zero. "If we had something else to offer, we would offer that."
'Crazy cool'

Around us in the South Bronx is evidence of drug dealing.

"Little crack baggies," explains Deaths Head Moth. "They're about the size of a postage stamp."

It's a quiet patrol though, and the team think their presence has stopped deals from going ahead.

"They'll see us and take off running," says Samaritan. "They go to the dark corners that all insects retreat to."

"We're doing something," adds Zero. "It's better than sitting on our asses and complaining about it."

Does he think their costumes might look a bit silly though?

"I really don't. What we wear is gear. If it's a little extra designed, it's crazy cool, you know? I get a lot of compliments on it."

Its the Moth fecker that worries me the most, the name is a not too subtle reference to Silence of the Lambs and he admits he uses violence.

Taking your name from a book/film about fecking serial killers, dressing up like a cross between the Punisher and Skelator from He-man, and walking the streets pounding people are not signs of a normal and happy mind. Cool

The word sociopath springs to mind, along with a few other other obvious mental disorders. study
