Cribbed from io9 , a google map that shows real-life superheroes in the USA. Yes, I mean real life.

People who dress up in spandex and fight crime.

Apparently, Portland is the home of Zetaman . I was glad to see that he likes to leave criminal apprehension to the police.

However, Black Panthers aside, what a great idea? Get dressed up, go out in your neighborhood, get to know people.

I wish I had a neighborhood superhero. I wouldn’t want to be one myself, but I would love someone else to be one. I would love to accidentally encounter them as I walk to get Mia or something like that.

Would you like a superhero in your neighborhood?
