VIDEO: Phoenix Jones Meets Rainn Wilson At ECCC

Posted by March 10, 2011 Comment

Bleeding Cool’s favourite Real Life Super Hero, Phoenix Jones, caused a little ruckus at Seattle comic convention Emerald City Comic Con

In a panel interview with The Office star Rainn Wilson about his upcoming real life superhero movie Super, with director James Dunn, Jones arrived with fellow superheroer Pitch Black to basically gatecrash the panel. Not that their prescence wasn;t welcome. And during the back and forth, Phoenix stated that “I’m sure the police aren’t very interested in what we’re doing. Most the time when they see us they tell us to stop. They’re not too thrilled with other people doing their job – they’re not shooting woodcarvers.”

A reference to the shooting of John T Williams by policeman, a perceived lack of justice and the protests thereof, previously mentioned by Bleeding Cool when Phoenix confronted protestors. At the time, people weren’t exactly sure where Phoenix stood on the issue. I giess they do now.

There has been a degree of conflict between the Seattle police, Phoenix Jones and other real life superheroes. It looks like that is set to continue.
