This Will Certainly Go Well: Real-Life Kick-Ass [Video]

By Great White Snark | January 6, 2011

This gentleman in Lynnwood, Washington (a veritable incubator for criminal masterminds), regularly ducks into a hidden room behind a shelf in a comic book store (for reals) and emerges as spandex- and body-armor-clad “Phoenix Jones.”

Much as the protagonist in Kick-Ass did, he roams the streets of his city looking for evildoers to thwart.

Real-Life Kick-Ass

And much as the protagonist in Kick-Ass did, he gets his ass kicked quite a bit:

Phoenix said since he started his crime-fighting crusade nine months ago, he’s been stabbed, and had a gun pulled on him a few times, but received no serious injuries.

This can only end badly. But, hey! Look! A cosplayer roaming around outside, with nary a nerd convention in sight!

Via The Daily What, who thinks what this guy is doing is quite noble. In a ridiculous and stupid sort of way.

      Cincinnati had a guy who called himself “Shadow Hare” who dresses up in a superhero/rabbit costume to fight crime and give food to the homeless. I’m not sure if he got himself killed or not.

      @Mark: When he does, you can be sure that the local news will trip all over itself in its rush to cover it.

      @Justin: Good point. At least he’s not one of those sloppy, sad cosplayers.

      A stabbing is like a fly bite to him.
      He obviously healed himself instantly by killing the wound with his awesomeness.
