Reals on the rise!

Obama is inspiring more real-life crusaders to don the cape and cowl according to The Times of London:

"In recent weeks, prompted by heady buzz words such as “active citizenry” during the Barack Obama campaign, the pace of enrolment has speeded up. Up to 20 new “Reals”, as they call themselves, have materialised in the past month."

But, costumed crime-fighting is not without its hazards:

"Mr Invisible is cheered that at least his grey one-piece 'invisibility suit' works, proven when a drunk urinated on him in an alley."


"Master Legend of Florida, who arms himself with a pepper-spraying cannon powered by cans of antiperspirant, was attacked by a man with a hammer."
