“The Police Stole My Super Suit” – Jon Ronson And Phoenix Jones

Some of you will know journalist Jon Ronson as the father of Bleeding Cool’s resident thirteen year old reporter Joel Ronson. A few months ago, Bleeding Cool reported on Jon Ronson’s travel to meet Phoenix Jones and other members the Real Life Super Hero movement in the USA. He wrote a piece for GQ and that was that.

Until it wasn’t.

He’s recently updated that article, issuing an expanded version with an addendum featuring the story of what happened to Phoenix Jones after his arrest, and will be releasing it on Kindle for (hold the line) $2.99. Including that Incredibles-sounding line from the title.

The short Kindle collection also comes with a preview to his new book The Psychopath Test.

“While the Real-Life Superhero Movement (RLSM) traces its origins all the way back to 1985, when a silver-suited young man calling himself Master Legend began patrolling the streets of Winter Park, Florida, the phenomenon got a considerable boost in January 2011, when a CNN report on Seattle’s Phoenix Jones went viral and captured the imagination of an incredulous public. Though the segment offered only a fleeting glance at Jones, it resulted in his rapid ascent to the forefront of the now 200-person strong movement. Ronson’s piece picks up where the CNN report left off, offering the most complete portrait to date of Jones and the costume-clad troops of the RLSM

The book will be released on Kindle on November 22nd.
