It looks like there are real super heroes running around…but they don’t know that stuff gets real when you’re not in a comic book.

The real-life super hero Phoenix Jones, has gained a big of notoriety for running around in a super hero costume and trying to fight crime. He’s even got a sidekick and little posse of crime fighters. But he may have crossed the line this summer. Jones pepper sprayed a group of women that he thought were fighting. According to the women (and the police), all they were doing was having a dance battle.

The police weren’t pleased:

“Our message has been the same from the beginning, if you see something that warrants calling 911, call 911,” said Seattle police spokesman Det. Mark Jamieson. “Just because he’s dressed up in costume, it doesn’t mean he’s in special consideration or above the law. You can’t go around pepper spraying people because you think they are fighting.”

Jones said he thought he “witnessed a hit-and-run/attempted murder of a man and he responded to stop it.” Regardless, we commend Jones for trying to do what’s best. But also want him to sit down somewhere before he gets himself hurt. Why doesn’t he just become a cop and collect comic books like the rest of normal human civilization?
