Now watch another report:
What do you think? I guess what you see in TV does affect you. I mean I love comic books, I love super heroes, movies, action figures, everything like that don’t get me wrong, but we live in the real world people.
The comic book universe its a great escape from reality, you might say, but we still live in the real universe. I think the intentions of this Viper guy are good, don’t get me wrong, I mean, seriously how many of us have ever dreamed about fighting crime and rescuing people? We are programmed to do good. We are human beings, sadly we get twisted and evil and make really bad choices along the way.
I would love to see a real Batman, or Spiderman, don’t get me wrong, but we have to be able to distinguish between what is real and what is fiction. There is a movie called “Defendor” with Woody Harrelson, watch it. It discusses the same subject we are talking about.
Viper is putting his life at risk, he has no superpowers (that we know of) and he is not bullet proof.
Superbarrio Gómez is a Mexican “real-life superhero,” celebrity, satirist, and organizer.
Superbarrio, a high school dropout,wears red tights and a red and yellow wrestler’s mask. Rather than fight crime and corruption with violence, he uses his image to organize labor rallies and protests, and file petitions. His real identity was unknown for a long time, but he has been revealed to be Marco Rascón Córdova.
In 1996 Superbarrio declared himself a “candidate” for the 1996 United States Presidential Election and held “mock” campaign rallies in the United States and Mexico.
Also I found another interesting article regarding “Real Life Costumed Vigilantes” at Odde.com
Are we going to see more costumed superheroes trying to protect us?
I guess we shall wait and see…
