Some Real Life Super Heroes spend a lot of time constructing their superherois identity, making it as distinct as possible with a name and attitude that suits their own specific view of life.
And others… well, just take an existing trademark.
Like Deadpool of Wenatchee, Washington. Putting up flyers around the town (above) explaining what he’s about and offering his services by e-mail.
Wenatchee’s The World emailed him and discovered an anonymous dogooder, to whom not everything goes to plan;
“I tried to help a woman out of the rain the other day and she didn’t really want to take my umbrella,” he said. “I think she was kind of intimidated.” But this Deadpool is not going too far out of his way. “Should I witness a crime in progress or one that just occurred, I will do my civil duty by calling the police and placing the criminal under citizen’s arrest until the police have arrived. I only mean to help the community, not to stir up more trouble than I seek to relieve. The police have enough trouble without a superhero taking the law into his own hands.”
