Real Life ‘Superhero’ Update, With Bonus Broken Nose

by on January 12, 2011

Here’s an update on that story we had about the “superheroes” fighting crime in costume in Seattle: Phoenix Jones, the leader of the Rain City Superheroes, had a little mishap that left him with a broken nose the other evening. Here’s the story from KOMO-TV/Seattle:

Seems that Phoenix came upon a bunch of guys arguing, stepped in to break it up, and instead got punched. He called 911 and got the guy in a headlock, but another guy pulled a gun and kicked him in the face. So that didn’t end well.

He says he’ll keep going and that this was no big deal, but the cops are warning folks not to get involved other than to immediately call 911. Remember, bullets won’t bounce off you, unless you’re encased in Kevlar.
