Real-Life Superheros Could Be Protecting Your Ass At This Very Moment.
(visit the link for the full news article)
Two things have been in short supply in recent years: 1) An actual sense of protection. 2) Sincere acts of heroism.
Where to turn for real help, security, and heroism?
Real-life superheros have begun to spring up everywhere. In fact, there are so many real-life superheros running around the city of Seattle that the local police have been encouraged to study up on the real life superhero movement to familiarize themselves with a growing trend.

"My ass" neither needs nor does it desire any protective services by any "super hero". I am quite capable of looking out for myself.

and some of the more spiritual HEROES formed a prayer circle and went to visit to old groping man with the evil sneer in the local lock up. They prayed long and hard and eventually their efforts touched his heart and he renounced his life style of crime and madness. Another Victory for the heroes who will triumph over evil...one dark soul at a time.

I read them...I am sure...yes.

I won't be donning a mask anytime soon, but if someone needs help, and I can offer it, then I will. I find that's usually enough.

about the store story...
The problem with it is simple...what you experienced should not be considered super nor heroic...that should be how society simply acts...
when one is in trouble, all people should swarm in and work together to help contain the problem....
The worst disservice you could possibly do, in my opinion, would be to say what you did is somehow detatched to what should be the norm...
I am not a superhero...
but I have always ran towards screams and calls for help...I have always stopped at new accidents to see if I needed to yank someone out of a burning car, etc...but that is not heroic...thats being civil in my opinion.
now...when I occasionally fly around the earth, making it spin in the opposite direction to turn back time and stop various nuclear attacks or mega earthquakes...that might be a bit above and beyond...but thats just because I have control over flight and time...anyone would

it was not half bad, I enjoyed it
I guess this follows that like the way kids used to imitate power rangers
seems the people in the pics in the link are from that generation ....
then there is the 'Guardian Angels" I wonder if they are still around ?
good line RP
i wonder how much of that mentality drives the personas on forums like this one?
