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=“javascript:_gaq.push([’_trackEvent’,‘outbound-article’,‘http://www.youtube.com’]);” rel=“prettyPhoto[g15819]””>even on occa­sion get their ass handed to them.

So now he’s seek­ing help.  He’s even made a commercial.

On his blog, Jones  points out var­i­ous rec­om­men­da­tions and require­ments needed for those seri­ous about going his form of either “The Avengers” or “Jus­tice League.”

The blog goes on to say that those who do not have a bul­let­proof vest can buy one for under $140 through a deal he was able to work out with a provider.

Lord only knows if this guy gets any tak­ers.  And best of luck to those who do take him up on it.
