Superheroes in Real Life

They create heroic identities with names like Black Arrow, Green Scorpion, and Mr. Silent, and wear bright Superman spandex or black ninja suits. Almost all share two traits in common: a love of comic books and a desire to improve their communities.

I've never heard of him, or "Reals", until now.

Maybe I'll give him a call and see if he needs sidekick.
