Be a Superhero, Bulletproof Vest Required
You grew up watching their cartoons, reading their comic books and jumping around in their underoos.
So, ever think of being a superhero?
(Yeah, that dream ended for me too. Around 12 or so.)
Well, a Seattle man, going under the superhero name “Phoenix Jones” — in actuality MMA fighter Ben Foder — who has been going around the city since 2010 in this capacity, is now seeking out help in his crusade against crime. He and his cohorts break up bar fights, handle street brawls, deal with small-time drug dealers, and <a href=“http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE7Id0NBQC4” onclick=“_gaq.push([’_trackEvent’, ‘outbound-article’, ‘http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE7Id0NBQC4’, ‘even on occasion get their ass handed to them’]);” rel=“prettyPhoto[g15819]””>even on occasion get their ass handed to them.
So now he’s seeking help. He’s even made a commercial.
