“When I walk into a neighborhood, criminals leave because they see the suit. I symbolize that the average person doesn’t have to walk around and see bad things and do nothing.” Sounds the opening to the sequel of Kick Ass right? Wrong.  These words were actually uttered by a mere mortal; a real life superhero named Phoenix Jones.

Jones’ dons his black and gold suit accompanied by a bulletproof vest, mace and taser.  Just like in Kick Ass Phoenix Jones just wants to help keep the common folk from getting the shaft.  Phoenix Jones recently helped a Seattle man avoid having his car broken into and from having any harm done to them in the process (Holy shit is that badass!).

It’s nice to see, as our disgruntled and poor excuse for a superhero Dave Lizewski comments in Kick Ass, that people in this world are aspiring to be more than the next Tila Tequila.  Also, in case you guys missed it, Rolling Stone did a piece a while back on real life superheroes.  So what do you guys think about this shizzle… is it blurring the lines between fantasy and reality or do guys like Phoenix Jones make you wanna suit up and join the fight??
