Real life Kick-Ass / Watchmen-like heroes patrol Seattle

Posted on 20 December 2010 by Kevin Minke

Last night a friend of mine, Jason, shared with me a great story over at the dailybeast. Here is how he put it:

This article is just like what it would be like to be in the Watchmen universe and reading about their exploits. Except it’s real. I’m not sure how I feel about this, but it seems vaguely disquieting.

Excerpt from the article:

Once I’m deemed harmless, a filthy white Kia sedan pulls up, an African-American man wearing a ski mask behind the wheel. There is a toddler in a baby carrier in the back seat. The baby will not be fighting crime with us tonight, Jones says. But he does have his own mask.

The car hasn’t been washed in over a year, Jones explains on the way to “Base 2″ (his godmother’s house) because there’s a blood stain on it that reminds him why he decided to don cape and cowl in the first place.

I’m not sure sure if I feel as he does, it’s an interesting read. Head on over to the daily beast to read the full article.
