In a recent copy of Rolling Stone there was an article on real life Superheroes. I am not talking about guys like Nick Vujisic, who over come their circumstances. There are over 200 people that actually dress up in spandex and patrol the streets at night, such as Phoenix, Arizona's Citizen Prime and Green Scorpion. There is an online registry where they join teams and share of their exploits.

The desire to be a superhero seems to be spreading globally, as the BBC reported a foiled home invasion. On New Years Eve, a man broke into the home of Torvald Alexander, in Edinburgh Scotland. Torvald was on his way out to a party when he came face to face with the intruder. To the man's surprise, Torvald was dressed as Thor. The man went back out the window, slid off the roof and ran away.

Personally, I think it is because we still have wait until next Monday for the premiere of the next installment of Heroes. No one tell my boys about this hero business, they already have enough of a superhero complex.

Jake, I already do that. My team is currently looking for a sidekick to say things like Holy rusted metal etc. If you are interested let me know what super powers you have, how you got your super powers, and if you are from this planet.
