"Superheroes".  Real life "superheroes".

And this is why the world needs psychiatrists.

This has been going on since April.  People have been reading The Watchmen waaaaaaay too much.  Admittedly, though, I think of that old song "Land of Confusion" by Genesis and the line "Superman where are you now?  Where everything's gone blind somehow" speaks to the disillusionment people are feeling.  I understand that desperate times call for desperate measures, but comic book logic only works in comic books.

How about that song "Pets" by Porno For Pyros.  "Will there be another race to come along and take over for us?  Maybe martians could do better than we've done."

At least it'll provide some new material for comic book writers (hell this just might wind up saving the comic book industry from the Gordian Knot of trouble that its own mythos has devolved into).

Thought Deja Vu, a similar story was posted about a month ago.

I still have the same stance as I did in that thread. It might be nerdity to the greatest extreme, but at least they're doing good deeds.

Half of it sounds stupid and irresponsible, but this is cool:

Quote
For Christmas, Lazaros said his group raised $700 in gifts and brought them to kids at St. Mary's Children's Hospital in New York. "They were so excited to see real-life superheroes," Lazaros said.

Considering all the regular crazy shit that see people harming people, I'm gonna side with the superheroes on this one. Responsible vigilantism for the win.

As odd as it may be, at least they're doing good things for others, even if in their own quirky way.

If you costume it up as a supervillain though and commit crime or pick fights with the superheroes, that would seem a lot lamer.

But then what will all the superheroes fight?

I mean a superhero without a villain is really just a sidekick at best.

Touche, though I guess if a villian exists to genuinely pester the hero, the hero can always file harassment charges. :p

Which is why even despite the best intentions, this whole thing jus screams "legal nightmare" to me.

Legal nightmare is right, but then again everything is already fucked up as it is. I know that comic book companies are going to make money off this...no sane person would pass on this, especially if it becomes a long term trend.
