Vigilante Justice Comes To Seattle
The Rain City Superhero Movement has descended upon Seattle, Washington and is defending it’s streets from crime. Part of a larger national effort of real-life crimefighters, average citizens are donning costumes, capes and secret identities and are handing out justice vigilante style.
In two instances in Seattle this brand of justice has almost resulted in tragedy as super heroes have come close to being shot after being mistaken as criminals. Seattle police have identified nine individuals fighting crime, Thorn, Buster Doe, Green Reaper, Gemini, No Name, Catastrophe, Thunder 88, Penelope and Phoenix Jones the Guardian of Seattle.
Seattle police are doing their best to see who’s behind these super heroes and talking to them. They’re worried that these heroes’ involvement will lead to injury as they do their best to prevent crime. The police hope they’ll instead just be good witnesses in the fight to take back the streets.
According to the national superhero website, the characters don’t have to engage in violent fights to be a crime fighter, but should embody the values presented in super heroic comic books.
“Inspiration plays a major role in this, of course,” character Entomo wrote on the page. “You can inspire people to believe in a symbol.
“You can inspire people to believe they can CREATE themselves a symbol and embody it — and it’s not a lie.”
