Phoenix Jones wears a bullet-proof black & gold rubber suit and scares away criminals with tear gas and tazer’s. No folks, I’m not kidding, there is a man running around in Seattle who thinks that he is a superhero. Quite tragic if you ask me, cute for the children perhaps or maybe someone’s rubbery sexual fantasy but quite honestly this guy is just going to get himself hurt when he is confronted by real criminals. Thus far he’s only been “fighting” small crimes.

Sky News reported that [ He has already managed to stop a man breaking into a car and possibly stealing it. The would-be victim, known as Dan, was walking back to his vehicle in a car park when he saw a man with a metal strip trying to open his car. Dan said: “He started sticking it down between the window and the rubber strip.” Dan began to call 911, but said help arrived before he even finished dialing.  He explained: “From the right, this guy comes dashing in, wearing this skin-tight rubber, black and gold suit, and starts chasing him away.” Phoenix is not the only costume-clad crime-fighter in Seattle.  There are other eight members of his Rain City Superhero group who also walk the streets, looking out for crime and prepared to fight it. Since Phoenix started his crusade nine months ago, he has been stabbed and was threatened with a gun several times, but received no serious injuries. Unfortunately, he did not find the man who was breaking into Dan’s car. He told CBS: “When I walk into a neighbourhood, criminals leave because they see the suit. “I symbolise that the average person doesn’t have to walk around and see bad things and do nothing. ]
