Superheroes (2011) - full transcript

'Superheroes' will introduce us to several of the country's most famous masked heroes including, Mr. Xtreme, a 33-year-old security guard officer by day, but a goon's worst nightmare by night. We'll follow Mr. Xtreme on his nightly patrols through the streets of San Diego, as he tries to stop evildoers and protect the innocent. We'll also meet the New York Initiative, a fantastic foursome of real life superheroes living together that tackle crime fighting, one Brooklyn borough at a time. Lead by Zimmer, we'll watch as they take to the streets and try to lure criminals out of hiding with their controversial Bait-Patrols. With over 300 registered superheroes in the United States, we'll definitively uncover the 'Real-Life Superhero' cultural phenomenon and discover what inspired these everyday citizens to take the law in to their own hands as they try to make the world a better and safer place for all.

(Distant siren wailing)

Mr. Xtreme:
WELL, WE WERE ACTUALLY
OUT ON A PATROL.

AND I HEAR A SCREAM
IN AN ALLEY.

WE START GOING INTO THIS
DARK ALLEY-- REALLY DARK.

YOU KNOW, THE SCREAM
STARTED GETTING LOUDER

AS WE GOT
CLOSER AND CLOSER.

THE NEXT THING I SAW
WAS THIS WOMAN,

AND THIS GUY WAS STOMPING
ON HER HEAD.

AND I GOT
IN FRONT OF MY PARTNER
AND JUST SHOUTED AT THE GUY.

I JUST SAID, "HEY!"

AND THEN HE--
HE BOLTED SO FAST.



"STOP, ASSHOLE!"

(Panting)

HE DUCKS INTO
ANOTHER ALLEY.

AND WE-- WE BACK HIM UP
AGAINST THE WALL.

HE TRIES TO GET PAST US.
MY PARTNER SAYS,

"HEY, DON'T MAKE ME
TAKE YOU DOWN."

AND I-- YOU KNOW,
I HAD MY HANDS UP,
OPEN PALMS,

YOU KNOW, KIND OF LIKE
A MUAY THAI STANCE.

I JUST TOLD HIM,
"HEY, MAN, BACK UP.
DON'T-- DON'T GO NO PLACE.

JUST CALM DOWN.
STAY WHERE YOU'RE AT."

AND HE TRIED TO GET PAST US,
BUT WE JUST TRIED TO--

WE JUST BLOCKED HIM IN."

(Siren wailing)

ALL OF A SUDDEN
A SQUAD CAR COMES UP.



SHE PUTS HIM IN HANDCUFFS,
THROWS HIM IN THE BACK.

AND HE ENDED UP
GETTING 34 YEARS.

(Tires screech)

(sirens wailing)

(man panting)

I DO NOT HAVE
ANY SUPERPOWERS.

HAVING SUPERPOWERS

DOES NOT NECESSARILY
MAKE YOU A SUPERHERO.

I THINK IT'S HAVING
SUPER MOTIVATION

AND DOING SUPER DEEDS.

(Grunting)

I THINK THAT'S WHAT
MAKES YOU A SUPERHERO.

Power Rangers
Mystic Force!

WELCOME TO
THE XTREME CAVE.

THIS IS MY RESIDENCE--
MY APARTMENT.

I DO CALL IT
THE XTREME CAVE,

'CAUSE IT IS
WHERE I LIVE.

BUT IT'S ALSO
WHERE I OPERATE

THE XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE
WHERE I DO MY RESEARCH

AND WHERE I STORE
MY EQUIPMENT.

VERY MUCH
INTO COMIC BOOKS.

I COLLECT COMIC BOOKS.
READ THEM, STARE AT THEM.

THEY ARE
MY INSPIRATION.

OBVIOUSLY, I'M VERY MUCH
INTO POWER RANGERS.

YEP.

YEAH, THEY'RE GONNA MORPH.

YOU CAN GO OVER SOME OF
MY BOOK COLLECTION--

"CHEAP SHOTS, AMBUSHES
AND OTHER LESSONS,"

"ONE-STRIKE
STOPPING POWER,"

"CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE,"
"THE CRIMINAL LAW HANDBOOK,"

"WORLD'S DEADLIEST
FIGHTING SECRETS,"

"THE BRUTAL ART
OF RIPPING,

POKING AND PRESSING
VITAL TARGETS."

THIS IS A "BOB,"
OR BODY OPPONENT BAG.

IT'S USED BY A LOT

OF DIFFERENT MARTIAL ARTISTS,
MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOLS.

START OFF WITH A PALM STRIKE
TO THE NOSE,

FOLLOW IT UP
BY EYE GOUGE,

AND THEN PUT IN
AN ELBOW TECHNIQUE
TO HIS TEMPLE,

ANOTHER
ELBOW TECHNIQUE

AND THEN COME IN HERE
AND THEN BOOM.

I CAN EVEN DEMONSTRATE
SOME OF MY TECHNIQUES

FROM MY SUPER EXTREME
DEATH METAL FIGHTING SYSTEM.

AW, MAN.
HE'S GOT MY ARMS.

MAYBE HE'S PUNCHING ME.
HE'S FUCKING HEAD-BUTTING ME.

I GOTTA TRY
TO PROTECT MY FACE.

AND THEN BOOM-- I CAN TRY
TO REACH FOR HIS EYES

AND JUST SCOOP THEM OUT
WITH MY THUMB,

AND THEN MAYBE
THE OTHER ONE.

AND-- AND THEN MAYBE
I CAN JUST--

JUST GRAB LIKE--

JUST PRETTY MUCH DIG
MY THUMBS INTO HIS EYES.

AND I CAN JUST COME IN
WITH, YOU KNOW, A BITE.

(Exhaling)

(grunting)

BITCH SLAP HIS ASS.

FUCKING BITCH.

I'VE GROWN UP
IN A HOUSEHOLD

OF ABUSE, VIOLENCE.

I WAS BULLIED
IN SCHOOL.

I MYSELF
HAVE BEEN A VICTIM
OF VIOLENT CRIME

AND I'VE WITNESSED
ALL THE APATHY AND
ALL THE INDIFFERENCE.

PEOPLE ARE JUST ALL
INTO THEMSELVES.

AND I SEE ALL THIS
SHALLOWNESS GOING AROUND.

I DO THIS TO PROTEST

THE THINGS THAT ARE JUST
WRONG WITH SOCIETY.

Stan Lee:
IT JUST OCCURS TO ME,

IT'S HARD TO CONCEIVE OF HER

RUNNING FAST IN HIGH HEELS,

AND YET I LIKE
THE IDEA THAT--

'CAUSE THEY MAKE THE GIRLS'
LEGS LOOK BETTER

IF THEY-- IF YOU--
YOU'RE ON HIGH HEELS.

WHAT IF SHE-- WOULD IT
LOOK TOO UNGAINLY

IF SHE WORE WEDGIES?
YOU KNOW WHAT WEDGIES ARE?

WHEN I FIRST MOVED OUT HERE,
THERE WAS A FELLOW

WHO CALLED HIMSELF
CAPTAIN STICKY.

IF HE FELT THERE WAS
A SLUM DWELLING

SOMEWHERE
IN THE INNER CITY,

AND THE LANDLORD WASN'T
GIVING THE TENANTS
HOT WATER,

HE'D PARK HIS
LINCOLN CONTINENTAL
IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING

AND WITH
A LOUDSPEAKER

HE WOULD DENOUNCE
THE LANDLORD

AND MAKE SUCH A FUSS

THAT EVENTUALLY
OUT OF EMBARRASSMENT

THE LANDLORD WOULD
TURN ON THE HOT WATER

OR DO WHATEVER HE DID.

AND HE RAN AROUND
IN THIS COSTUME
WITH THE CLOAK.

HE WAS A VERY
FUNNY GUY.

AND HE TOOK HIMSELF
VERY SERIOUSLY.

YOU COULD HAVE A SUPERHERO
WHO'S VERY SHY.

YOU COULD HAVE
A SUPERHERO

WHO'S VERY FORWARD-GOING
AND CONCEITED.

AND YOU COULD HAVE
A SUPERHERO

WHO'S NOT TOO BRIGHT
OR ONE WHO'S BRILLIANT.

SUPERHEROES COME IN ALL SIZES,
SHAPES AND TYPES.

BUT I'D BE
A LITTLE BIT WORRIED

ABOUT SOMEBODY
WITH NO ACTUAL SUPERPOWER

WHO PUTS ON A COSTUME
AND THEN RUNS AROUND

CHALLENGING CRIMINALS
OR PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE ARMED.

I FIGURE THAT PERSON
COULD GET HURT.

MY NAME IS ZIMMER.
I AM FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS.

AND I'M NOW
IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

WHAT'S AMAZING
ABOUT THE REAL-LIFE
SUPERHERO EXPERIENCE

IS THAT YOU CAN TAKE
EVERYTHING THAT'S
IMPORTANT TO YOU

AND EVERYTHING
THAT YOU ENJOY DOING

AND INCORPORATE IT
INTO YOUR PERSONA

AND YOUR MISSIONS.

I CARE ABOUT HUMANITY.

I CARE ABOUT THE FACT
THAT WE'RE TRASHING
THE PLANET.

I CARE ABOUT THE FACT
THAT MOST GOVERNMENTS
ARE VERY CORRUPT.

I CARE THAT THE POLICE
ARE CORRUPT.

THE ONLY WAY
THE FABRIC OF HUMANITY
IS GOING TO CHANGE

AND THE ONLY WAY
THESE PROBLEMS ARE GOING
TO BE ADDRESSED

IS IF SOMEONE
ADDRESSES THEM.

THANK YOU.

I CAME TO BROOKLYN
FOR A LOT OF REASONS.

THERE WERE A LOT OF
PEOPLE ONLINE--

THERE WAS A LOT OF BUZZ
ABOUT NEW YORK AND BROOKLYN

AND WHAT COULD BE DONE
IN A CITY

IF THERE WERE MULTIPLE
SUPERHEROES IN IT.

MY ROOMMATES
ARE SUPERHEROES.

I'M CURRENTLY LIVING WITH Z.
HE'S FROM DETROIT.

THERE'S T.S.A.F.--
SHE'S FROM DETROIT AS WELL--

AND LUCID, WHO'S REALLY
FROM ALL OVER.

THIS IS ME
ACTING OUT A NEED I FEEL.

I FEEL SOMETHING
NEEDS TO BE DONE,
WHATEVER IT MAY BE.

I'M JUST SICK
OF THE CORRUPTION THAT I SEE
EVERYWHERE I LOOK, YOU KNOW,

WHETHER IT IS
THE BOSS AT YOUR WORK

OR THE DUDE, YOU KNOW,
NEXT DOOR

THAT'S BEATING HIS WIFE
AND BEEN DOING SO
FOR 20 YEARS.

YOU KNOW, IT'S ALL
THE LITTLE THINGS.

AND WE MOVED TO BROOKLYN
BECAUSE WE FIGURED

IT'S A LARGE ENOUGH AREA

WHERE WE CAN HAVE MUCH MORE
TO ACTUALLY FOCUS ON.

N.Y.P.D.,

EVEN THE GOVERNMENT ITSELF,
IS COMPLETELY UNRELIABLE.

YOU KNOW, I'M HERE TO DO
SOMETHING, DO ANYTHING.

I'VE ALWAYS GOTTEN ALONG
WITH Z THE MOST

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
MUCH LIKE ME, HE IS SOMEONE

WHO HAS HAD
A FUCKED-UP LIFE.

Z:
THERE WAS A LOT OF THINGS
GOING ON IN MY LIFE.

AND I SAW MYSELF GOING DOWN
A REALLY BAD PATH.

AND I KIND OF LOST HOPE.

SO, UM, I TRIED TO--

I TRIED TO OFF MYSELF,
YOU KNOW?

AND WHEN I WOKE UP,
IT DIDN'T WORK.

AND I REALLY WOKE UP,
YOU KNOW?

LIKE I DIDN'T JUST WAKE UP.
I WOKE UP

AND REALIZED
THAT THAT WOULD BE
KIND OF A WASTE, YOU KNOW?

BECAUSE I GOT A LOT
OF THINGS THAT I CAN DO
AND THAT I OFFER.

T.S.A.F.:
WE'RE INDIVIDUALS,

MEANING PEOPLE THAT HAVE
VARIED BACKGROUNDS.

AND WE'RE ALL COMING TOGETHER
FOR ONE PURPOSE,

AND THAT'S TO HELP.

T.S.A.F.-- TSAF.

IT STANDS FOR
"THE SILENCED AND FORGOTTEN."

REALLY THE ONLY THING
THAT I COULD THINK OF

WAS TO HAVE IT BE
A REMINDER

OF WHY I'M DOING THIS
IN THE FIRST PLACE,

SO THAT I JUST KNOW
THAT IT'S NEVER ABOUT ME.

"THE NEW YORK INITIATIVE"--

IT'S A CALL TO PERSONAL
ACCOUNTABILITY

FOR OURSELVES
AND FOR EVERYBODY ELSE.

Zimmer:
MY FIRST NIGHT ON PATROL,
FOR REAL,

WAS THE ANNIVERSARY
OF KITTY GENOVESE'S DEATH.

Mr. Xtreme:
MARCH 13th, 1964,

IN NEW YORK CITY
IN QUEENS,

A WOMAN NAMED
KATHERINE GENOVESE,

A.K.A KITTY GENOVESE--

SHE WAS ASSAULTED,
BRUTALLY ATTACKED,

RAPED AND
ULTIMATELY MURDERED.

AND 38 PEOPLE

FROM A NEARBY
APARTMENT COMPLEX--

THEY HEARD IT.
THEY HEARD HER SCREAM.
SOME SAW IT,

BUT THEY DIDN'T
DO ANYTHING.

Zimmer:
IT WAS A WORLDWIDE STORY

THAT PEOPLE WERE
THIS APATHETIC.

AND SO ON THE ANNIVERSARY
OF HER DEATH--

AND I WAS IN
A RELATIONSHIP AT THE TIME
AND LIVING WITH THE PERSON.

SO I SNUCK OUT OF BED.
I GOT ON MY GEAR

AND WENT OUT.

IT WAS A VERY PERSONAL
EXPERIENCE TO ME,

'CAUSE I REALLY THOUGHT
ABOUT WHAT I WANTED
TO DO WITH MY LIFE

AND WHAT WAS
IMPORTANT TO ME.

AND I THINK
THAT'S WHAT CEMENTED

MY COMMITMENT
TO THE REAL-LIFE
SUPERHERO MOVEMENT

AND THE CAUSES
THAT THEY UPHOLD.

News announcer:
"THE VILLAGE VOICE"
IS RELEASING

SOME SHOCKING RECORDINGS
MADE INSIDE A BROOKLYN
POLICE PRECINCT.

"THE VOICE" SAYS THE TAPES
SHOW PRECINCT BOSSES

PRESSURING COPS TO MAKE
THEIR MONTHLY QUOTAS

OF ARRESTS
AND STOP-AND-FRISKS

AND URGING OFFICERS TO RECORD
FEWER ACTUAL CRIMES

IN ORDER TO MANIPULATE
CRIME STATISTICS.

Lucid: ALL RIGHT, SO WE'VE BEEN
LOOKING AT "THE VILLAGE VOICE"
LATELY, RIGHT?

THE N.Y.P.D.
HAS BEEN

PRETTY MUCH
CAUGHT RED-HANDED
BY ONE OF THEIR OWN.

AND WE NEED
TO TALK ABOUT IT,
BECAUSE I THINK IT'S--

THEY HAVE NO MANPOWER.
THEY WRITE A BUNCH OF
TICKETS FOR NOTHING

AND THEY SHOW
ALL THIS ACTIVITY,
BUT THEY DON'T FOCUS

ON ANY MAJOR CRIMES.

THEY DON'T FOCUS
ON ROBBERIES, FELONIES.

THEY JUST DON'T HAVE
THE MANPOWER FOR THAT.

THIS QUOTE IS JUST RIDICULOUS:
"A TYPICAL DAY AT THE PRECINCT

HAD ONLY
THREE TO NINE OFFICERS
PATROLLING THE STREETS

IN AN AREA OF MORE THAN
60,000 PEOPLE."

THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY--
I MEAN, THREE TO NINE PEOPLE?

WE'RE THREE TO NINE PEOPLE.

RIGHT NOW THERE'S NO ONE
IN THIS PRECINCT

THAT'S OUT TO FIGHT CRIME.
THEY'RE OUT TO FILL QUOTAS.

- Lucid: YEAH.
- THERE'S NO ONE FIGHTING
CRIME RIGHT NOW.

THERE NEEDS TO BE PEOPLE
THAT KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING
IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENTS.

AND IF THEY CAN'T,
THEN THEY NEED OUTSIDE HELP.

Lieutenant Andra Brown:
I'VE BEEN WITH THE POLICE
DEPARTMENT FOR 24 YEARS.

I SPENT MY FIRST 21 YEARS
IN UNIFORM OUT IN THE FIELD.

I LOVE MY CAREER
IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.

I RECOMMEND IT.

WHEN THE AVERAGE CITIZEN
ATTEMPTS

TO TAKE THE LAW
INTO THEIR OWN HANDS,

THEY'RE DOING IT
FOR MAYBE NOBLE REASONS,

BUT BECAUSE THEY'RE
IMPASSIONED BY SOMETHING,

AND PERHAPS THAT
THEY'RE NOT USING

THE MOST CLEAR JUDGMENT
OR THE MOST COMMON SENSE.

AND ANYTIME ANYONE ACTS

WITHOUT COMMON SENSE
OR WITHOUT GOOD JUDGMENT,

GOOD THINGS
RARELY HAPPEN.

I TOLD YOU MY BOMBS
AREN'T NO FUNNY BUSINESS.

(Laughs)

I BECAME
A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO

AT A VERY YOUNG AGE--

SOME PEOPLE
WILL LAUGH AT THIS--
EIGHT OR NINE YEARS OLD

WHEN I HAD TO FIGHT
A BULLY IN SCHOOL.

HE WAS BEATING UP ON PEOPLE,
POURING MILK ON THEIR HEAD.

AND HE GOT AWAY
WITH EVERYTHING

JUST BECAUSE HIS MAMA
WORKED IN THE OFFICE.

SHE WAS LIKE
ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL

OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

WELL, I GOT SICK OF IT.

FROM MY INFLUENCE
OF COMIC BOOKS,

I BUILT MYSELF A MASK

WITH SHOESTRINGS AND
AN OLD PIECE OF MATERIAL,

MADE MYSELF A SHIRT
WITH AN EMBLEM ON IT,

AND THEN I JUMPED OUT
ONE DAY

AND BEAT UP THE BULLY,

AND RAN AWAY AND HURRIED UP
AND TUCKED AWAY MY SUIT.

THEY NEVER KNEW
WHO DID IT.

THAT'S WHEN MASTER LEGEND
WAS BORN.

HI THERE, SIRS.

I GUESS YOU CAN SAY
GOD GAVE ME THE CALLING.

HE TOLD ME,
"I GAVE YOU POWERS.

I GAVE YOU STRENGTH
BEYOND THAT--

THAT MOST PEOPLE
WILL EVER HAVE.

YOU HAVE TO GET OUT THERE
AND SHOW PEOPLE THE TRUTH."

AND THAT'S WHAT
I'M DOING.

MAN, YOU'RE IN A LOT
OF PAIN, HUH?

HE DOESN'T DESERVE
TO HAVE THIS PAIN.

HE DOESN'T DESERVE
TO HAVE TO SUFFER

'CAUSE SOME DRUNK DRIVER
OR WHATEVER RAN HIM OVER.

IT'S MISERY.
SO I ASK YOU, GOD--

AND I KNOW GOD ALWAYS
LISTENS TO ME.

SO HE'S GOING TO
HELP YOU OUT, MAN.

MASTER LEGEND IS
ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT,
WHEN YOU MEET HIM,

HE JUST HAS AWESOME
WRITTEN ALL OVER HIM.

HE IS ONE OF THE MOST
CHARISMATIC PEOPLE I'VE SEEN

ABOUT HELPING OTHERS
IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

HEY, PRETTY LADIES.

WHOA, I TELL YA,

THEY DON'T MAKE THEM
BETTER THAN THAT.

(Laughs)

I STARTED TEAM JUSTICE
YEARS AGO.

WE'RE THE ONLY
SUPERHERO TEAM

THAT HAS A NON-PROFIT
ORGANIZATION STATUS

RECOGNIZED BY
THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

LUCKILY, FINDING THE CHOICE
PEOPLE THAT I HAVE,

LIKE SUPER HERO
AND SYMBIOTE--

THEY HAVE TAKEN IT TO
WHERE I NEEDED THEM TO GO

TO BE ABLE TO--
HEY THERE.

IS IT REALLY YOU?

YEAH, MASTER LEGEND.

- SERIOUSLY?
- YEAH.

- Woman #2: SERIOUSLY?
- OH MY GOD.

- I'VE BEEN DYING TO MEET YOU.
- ME TOO.

- WOW, WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
- MY NAME'S STEPHANIE.

STEPHANIE.
BEAUTIFUL STEPHANIE.

- BRANDIE.
- BRANDIE.

- VERY NICE TO MEET YOU.
- BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BRANDIE.

- UM, UM...
- IS THIS ARMOR TOO?

OH NO.
I'M SORRY. IT'S NOT.

WELL, IT CAN GET STIFF NOW.

(Laughs)

MASTER LEGEND
IS VERY PSYCHIC.

I'LL JUST GO AHEAD
AND SAY IT.

I HAVE SUPER SPEED,
HIGH ENDURANCE,

SIGHT BEYOND SIGHT,

HEALING POWERS,
SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH.

HE'S NEVER BEEN WRONG

ABOUT ANYTHING
HE'S EVER PREDICTED.

A FEW YEARS AGO
THERE WAS A BOY

WHO I THOUGHT WAS MY SON,
BELIEVE IT OR NOT,

A 19-YEAR-OLD SON
FROM UP NORTH OF HERE.

AND MASTER LEGEND KNEW
BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE DID,

"NOPE, HE'S NOT
YOUR SON."

SURE ENOUGH, THAT TURNED OUT
TO BE RIGHT.

WE'RE GOING TO GO ONWARD
TO THE JUSTICE VAN.

(Car horn honks)

(laughs)

HOW I LOVE JUMPING
IN FRONT OF CARS, HUH?

THE JUSTICE VAN
IS EQUIPPED

WITH JUST ABOUT EVERY TYPE
OF LIFESAVING THING

THAT I CAN POSSIBLY
HAVE ON HAND.

I'VE GOT SOME DONATIONS
IN THERE.

I'VE GOT
AN AIR CONDITION HERE

THAT I'M GONNA BE HELPING OUT
THESE PEOPLE WITH

THAT DON'T HAVE
AN AIR CONDITION.

AND OF COURSE I'VE GOT
THE ICE CHEST THERE.

AND I'VE GOT THESE
THAT I BRING, YOU KNOW,

IN CASE I RUN INTO SOME KIDS
AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

BUT Y'ALL CAN HAVE
SOME OF THESE TOO.

YOU KNOW,
THEY'RE FLAVORFUL TREATS.

(Laughs)

BUT OH WELL, YOU KNOW.

BUT THEN
THERE'S ONE THING

MASTER LEGEND
HAS TO HAVE,

BECAUSE HE WORKS UP
A WHOPPING THIRST

RUNNING AROUND LIKE THIS.
AND THERE YOU GO.

THAT'S WHAT I HAVE--

A GOOD COLD BEER.

YOU KNOW, AND THERE'S
NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG
WITH A GOOD COLD BEER

USED IN MODERATION,
OF COURSE.

NEVER DRINK
TO DRUNKENNESS.

AH.

WHEN A MAN WORKS UP
A WHOPPING THIRST,

THAT'S WHAT QUENCHES IT,

NOT SOME KOOL-AID.

A SERIAL GROPER

MAY BE WALKING
THE STREETS OF CHULA VISTA

GRABBING GIRLS
AND WOMEN

AND SEXUALLY
ASSAULTING THEM.

THIS IS A SKETCH
OF THE MAN RESPONSIBLE

FOR GROPING AT LEAST
13 WOMEN AND GIRLS

IN THE CHULA VISTA AREA
IN THE LAST FOUR MONTHS.

Mr. Xtreme:
HERE'S ONE OF MY
XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE FLYERS.

AS YOU CAN SEE,
I LIKE TO DO IT WITH WORDS

A LITTLE BIT MORE CRUDE,
MORE RAW.

THE IDEA IS SO IT CAN GRAB
SOMEONE'S ATTENTION.

THEY MIGHT SAY,
"WELL, THIS LOOKS LIKE SHIT.

LET ME TAKE A LOOK.
WELL, WHAT'S ALL THIS?"

AND THEN THEY READ IT,
AND THEY REALIZE, "OH WOW.

THERE'S A MISSING PERSON.

THERE'S A SEXUAL PREDATOR
ON THE LOOSE."

'CAUSE IT JUST
STANDS OUT MORE.

CHULA VISTA GROPER--

HE STARTED ATTACKING
LAST YEAR.

IN ONE INSTANCE

HE BIT
ONE OF THE VICTIMS

ON HER BUTTOCKS.

I HOPE TO GET HIS FACE
OUT MORE INTO THE PUBLIC

SO PEOPLE WILL BE AWARE
THAT THIS GUY'S OUT THERE.

ONE OF THE ATTACKS
HAPPENED

AROUND THE S.D.S.U.--
SAN DIEGO STATE AREA.

IT'S NOT CONFIRMED,

BUT THE M.O.
WAS VERY SIMILAR.

THERE WAS A SEXUAL
ASSAULT THERE

THAT HAPPENED
LAST NIGHT,

SO I FEEL THAT IT'S IMPORTANT
THAT WE STEP UP PATROLS
OVER IN THAT AREA.

(Women laughing,
chattering)

Woman:
CAN I TAKE A PICTURE OF YOU
SO I CAN MAKE SURE THIS IS REAL?

- Mr. Xtreme: THERE WAS
A CRIME THAT HAPPENED.
- Woman: OH MY GOD.

YEAH, OUT HERE JUST TRYING
TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE.

THERE WAS A SEXUAL ASSAULT
HERE LAST NIGHT.

THAT'S AWESOME.
CAN I SEE YOUR EYES?

ACTUALLY I HAVE TO KEEP
MY EYES CONCEALED.

I CAN'T SEE YOUR EYES?
THAT'S WEIRD.

OH, SO THAT SO NO ONE
KNOWS WHO YOU ARE?

Man:
THE SUPERMAN.
THIS IS CLARK KENT.

OKAY, YOU GUYS BE SAFE
OUT THERE WALKING.

Women:
THANK YOU. BYE.

(Women giggle)

OKAY, ANYWAYS,
RIGHT NOW THE POLICE

ARE PRETTY MUCH WATCHING ME
WITH A MICROSCOPE.

ARE YOU OUT HERE
BY YOURSELF TONIGHT?

YEAH, IT'S JUST
GONNA BE ME.
I'LL BE OUT HERE

TILL ABOUT 2:00--
ABOUT 2:00, YEAH.

OKAY, YOU'RE STILL CARRYING
THE TASER, RIGHT?

YEAH, I HAVE A TASER
AND I HAVE A STUN GUN.

OKAY, JUST TO LET YOU
KNOW, MAN,

- JUST DON'T GO ANYWHERE
ON CAMPUS, DUDE, WITH THAT.
- ON CAMPUS, OKAY.

BECAUSE IF YOU GO ON CAMPUS
WITH THE STUN GUN,
IT'S BAD NEWS.

- YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
- OKAY, YEAH, I UNDERSTAND.

YOU CAN'T GO ON CAMPUS
WITH ANYTHING SORT OF
LESS LETHAL--

YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T GO
ON THERE WITH PEPPER SPRAY

AND TASERS
AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

- OH, STUDENTS CAN'T EVEN CARRY
PEPPER SPRAY ON CAMPUS?
- NO.

- AW, MAN.
- THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR,
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?

- YEAH YEAH YEAH.
- IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM,
YOU CALL THE POLICE.

- SO JUST GIVING YOU A HEADS-UP.
- YEAH, NO PROBLEM, NO PROBLEM.

- YEAH, OKAY.
- ALL RIGHT?

Police officer:
YEAH, I DON'T KNOW, MAN.

I MEAN, I THINK
IT'S A GOOD THING,
AS LONG AS HE STAYS SAFE.

IF HE GETS INTO ANY PROBLEMS,
YOU KNOW, HE'S GOT TO
CALL THE POLICE,

'CAUSE HE'S GOT
TASERS AND STUFF,

BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE
CARRY GUNS AND KNIVES
AND STUFF, SO...

Mr. Xtreme:
WHAT THE OFFICER TOLD ME--
I WAS ASKING HIM

ABOUT THE SEXUAL ASSAULT
THAT TOOK PLACE LAST NIGHT.

HE STATED THAT IT WAS
ACTUALLY ALONG--

Man:
HEY, GET THE FUCK OFF
OUR PROPERTY RIGHT NOW.

I WILL CALL THE POLICE.
GET THE FUCK OFF
OUR PROPERTY.

THANKS FOR SAYING "PLEASE."

HERE YOU GO, SIR.
I'VE GOT SOME INFORMATION

ABOUT THE XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE.
THANK YOU.

CAN I GIVE YOU GUYS
A COUPLE OF FLYERS

ABOUT THE XTREME
JUSTICE LEAGUE?

YEAH, CHECK IT OUT.
ALL RIGHT?

- THANK YOU.
- SURE.

CURRENTLY I AM THE ONLY MEMBER
OF THE XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE.

BUT RIGHT NOW
WE ARE RECRUITING.

YEAH, CHECK US OUT.
WE'RE RECRUITING RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE RECRUITING SUPERHEROES
THAT WANT TO GO OUT
AND FIGHT CRIME.

- WHAT DO YOU GUYS DO?
- WE PATROL THE STREETS.

I TRY TO
SAFEGUARD NEIGHBORHOODS,
PREVENT VIOLENT CRIME

AND TRY TO RAISE AWARENESS
ABOUT VIOLENT CRIME
IN THE COMMUNITY.

XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE.

- EXTREME?
- JUSTICE LEAGUE.
XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE.

- EXTREME?
- YES.

DEFINITELY WE'RE LOOKING
FOR PEOPLE FOR THE XTREME
JUSTICE LEAGUE

TO JOIN UP AND HELP OUT
WITH OUR CRIME-FIGHTING
EFFORTS.

HOW'D YOU GET THIS VEST?
IS IT BULLETPROOF?

- Man: X.J.L.?
- X.J.L., YES.

- THAT'S MY ORGANIZATION.
- OH COOL, OKAY.

HAVE YOU BEEN SHOT, DUDE?

NO, ACTUALLY.
I HOPE THAT DAY NEVER COMES.

YEAH, ME TOO.
I REALLY DON'T.

THAT WOULD BE PRETTY--
PRETTY HAIRY.

BUT, YOU KNOW,
IN THIS LINE OF WORK
THAT COULD HAPPEN.

- WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
- MR. XTREME.

MR. XTREME. OKAY.

I REALLY DON'T HAVE
A SOCIAL LIFE, TO BE HONEST.

YOU KNOW,
I DON'T HAVE THE TIME.

BEING A SUPERHERO,

IT CAN BE A PRETTY LONELY--
A LONELY PATH.

WELL, AT LEAST
FOR ME IT IS.

YOU KNOW, I CAN'T SPEAK
FOR EVERYBODY ELSE.

REAL-LIFE SUPERHEROES
AREN'T NECESSARILY

ANY CRAZIER THAN YOU OR I
OR ANYONE ELSE.

THEY TAKE
THE STANCE OF

IF SUPERHEROES WERE REAL,
WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE?

- WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?
- A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO.

I'M WHAT'S CALLED
A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO.

- THE NAME'S AMAZONIA.
- OKAY.

THEY ARE DEDICATED
TO WHAT THEY DO.

I AM THE CONUNDRUM.

I AM A BLACK BELT
IN BRAZILIAN JU-JITSU,

WITH SIX-YEAR
PERIODS OF FREE-RUNNING,
PARKOUR AND GYMNASTICS.

IT'S A HOBBY
FOR MOST PEOPLE,

BECAUSE IT'S NOT
A PAYING JOB.

AND IT'S A HOBBY THAT
THEY'VE THROWN THEMSELVES
INTO PASSIONATELY.

(Engine starts)

A CAR HAS
ITS ADVANTAGES.

A CAR IMPRESSES PEOPLE.

A CAR MAKES THEM KNOW
YOU'RE LEGIT.

MY STATUS POINTS WENT WAY UP
WHEN I HAD THE SUPERMOBILE.

LIKE YOU PULL UP
INTO A GAS STATION,

AND PEOPLE ARE LIKE, "DAMN.
THIS GUY IS A SUPERHERO."

AND THEY ARE ALSO DOING GOOD
AT THE SAME TIME.

Life:
WELL, THE WORLD IS
OUT OF BALANCE.

I AND MANY MANY
GOOD PEOPLE IN THE WORLD

ARE TRYING TO WORK
TO PERFECT THAT BALANCE.

MY NAME IS CHAIM.

- CHAIM IS HEBREW,
AND IT MEANS "LIFE."
- HOW ARE YOU DOING?

AND WHEN I BECAME
A SUPERHERO,

IT REALLY SEEMED OBVIOUS
FOR ME TO GO WITH "LIFE."

WITHOUT LIFE
THERE IS NOTHING.

Thanatos:
I WAS TOLD
BY A POLICE OFFICER

THAT PEOPLE ON THE STREET
HAD NOTHING BETTER TO LOOK
FORWARD TO THAN DEATH.

I DECIDED
IF THAT WAS THE CASE,

THEN MAYBE DEATH HAD BETTER
STEP IN HIMSELF.

I'VE SORT OF BECOME
A PARODY OF DEATH,

BECAUSE RATHER THAN
TAKING LIFE, I'M GIVING IT.

A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO
IS AN ICON

TO INSPIRE PEOPLE
THAT EVERYBODY CAN
MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

WE ALL HAVE ALTER EGOS.

WE DON'T ALL
DRESS IN COSTUME.

Apocalypse Meow:
I WAS SITTING ON
THE COUCH ONE DAY

AND HE TOLD ME THAT HE WANTED
TO SHOW ME SOMETHING.

AND HE LEFT THE HOUSE.
AND WHEN HE CAME BACK IN,

HE WAS ALL DRESSED
FROM HEAD TO TOE

IN HIS LEATHER PANTS
AND HIS GREAT BIG "Z."

AND I WAS
VERY CONFUSED.

AND I DIDN'T LIKE IT
ONE BIT.

I KEPT TELLING HIM,
"YOU'RE DONE.

HOPE YOU HAD
A GOOD TIME.

YOU'RE SO DONE WITH THIS."
(Laughs)

AND HE TOLD ME,
"I'M NOT QUITTING."

I TOLD HIM, "WELL,
IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA QUIT,

THEN WE'RE GONNA HAVE
TO COMPROMISE.

I'M GONNA HAVE TO GO
WITH YOU."

AND HE SAID, "OKAY."
AND THAT'S HOW I GOT STARTED.

Mr. Xtreme:
ANY DAY JOB I'VE EVER HAD,
I'VE NEVER LIKED.

BUT I HAVE TO PAY THE BILLS
JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

WHEN I'M NOT DOING THIS,
I'M A TEACHER.

I'M A STAY-AT-HOME DAD.
I HAVE TWO KIDS.

THERE'S FOUR OF US
THAT ARE TATTOO ARTISTS
AND ALSO SUPERHEROES.

MY CURRENT DAY JOB
IS A SECURITY GUARD.

I HAVE A LOT OF TRAINING.
I'M A MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTOR.

THE INGREDIENTS TO BE
A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO
REALLY VARY,

'CAUSE EVERYBODY'S LOOKING
TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

BUT IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO BE,
YOU KNOW, A CRIME FIGHTER

OR YOU'RE LOOKING
TO REALLY DO PATROLS,

I THINK YOU HAVE TO BE
IN SHAPE.

I THINK YOU NEED
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING.

YOU CAN'T JUST
THROW ON A MASK

AND GO OUT AND THINK
YOU'RE GONNA DO SOMETHING.

YOU'RE GONNA
GET YOURSELF KILLED.

I TRY TO KEEP MYSELF
IN GOOD SHAPE,

AND, YOU KNOW,
JUST KEEP MYSELF SAFE

IF I'M GOING TO BE
ON THE STREETS.

I'VE BEEN OUT THERE
QUITE A FEW TIMES,

GOING UP AGAINST THE DEALERS
IN WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK.

THERE'S TIMES WHERE

THEY WOULD GET IN MY FACE
AND THREATEN ME.

YOU KNOW, THERE'S A TIME
A GUY FLASHED A GUN AT US.

BUT THE THING IS
I'VE NEVER BACKED DOWN

AND THE PEOPLE I WORK WITH
HAVE NEVER BACKED DOWN.

AND WE'VE ALWAYS MANAGED
TO BE ON TOP OF THAT.

SO THEY WERE
DEFINITELY SELLING.

The Cameraman:
I STARTED OFF JUST KIND OF
FILMING THE MOVEMENT,

'CAUSE THERE WAS JUST
SOMETHING ABOUT THE TOPIC
THAT DREW ME TO IT.

BUT EVENTUALLY I GOT
SUCKED INTO THE WORLD.

AND, YOU KNOW,
BEFORE I KNEW IT,
I FOUND MYSELF

GOING ON
CRIME-FIGHTING PATROLS
WITH DARK GUARDIAN

AS THE CAMERAMAN,
SHOOTING HIS PATROLS.

Dark Guardian:
THERE WAS ACTUALLY A TIME

WHERE A WHOLE BIG GROUP
OF US WENT OUT.

IT WAS A BIG BUSINESS DAY
FOR THE DEALERS.

WE WENT OUT THERE
TO KICK THEM OUT.

WE'RE HERE 'CAUSE
WE'RE NOT GONNA TOLERATE

DRUGS IN THE PARK
ANYMORE.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO
STAND FOR IT.

IT GOES ON
AND ON AND ON

AND NOBODY DOES NOTHING
OR SAYS ANYTHING.

IT'S TIME
SOMEBODY STOOD UP.

Dark Guardian:
THEY DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE.

BUT WE DIDN'T BACK DOWN
AND WE RUINED THEIR
NIGHT OF BUSINESS.

IF YOU'RE SELLING
ANYTHING,

YOU KNOW YOU AIN'T GONNA BE
SELLING NOTHING RIGHT NOW.

SO NOBODY'S GONNA
BE COMING OVER HERE.
I'M LETTING Y'ALL KNOW THAT.

IT'S GONNA BE
A BAD NIGHT OF SELLING.

Dark Guardian:
THE CAMERAMAN HAS BEEN
AN ESSENTIAL PART

OF WORKING THE PARKS.
I USUALLY SEND HIM IN

TO GET AUDIO OF THE DEALERS,
SO I KNOW EXACTLY
WHO'S SELLING,

HAVE SOME EVIDENCE
OF WHAT'S GOING ON.

HE'S GOT A GIANT PAIR
OF BALLS,

BECAUSE HE'S
RIGHT THERE WITH ME
HOLDING THAT CAMERA.

FIRST OF ALL,
THERE'S POLICE RIGHT THERE.

Dark Guardian:
THE POLICE-- THEY'VE ACTUALLY
PICKED ME UP BEFORE.

WHO ARE YOU?
WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

I'M DARK GUARDIAN.

(Laughs)
OKAY.

THEY WERE ALL JUST,
"HEY, WE APPRECIATE YOU
TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE,

BUT WE DON'T WANT
TO SEE YOU GET HURT."

Lieutenant Brown:
REAL-LIFE SUPERHEROES--
THEY'RE NOT TRAINED.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE TACTICS
AND THE EQUIPMENT.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE
OF LAW, OR CASE LAW.

THEY DON'T HAVE
PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES,
GUIDELINES,

THE WAY THAT
THE POLICE OFFICERS DO

TO ENSURE THAT PEOPLE'S
CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

ARE PROTECTED.

I CONSIDER MYSELF
TO BE A PROTECTOR.

AND I WORK
WITHIN THE LAWS.

I WORK WITHIN
THE SYSTEMS.

I DON'T GO OUT THERE
AND TRY TO HARASS PEOPLE.

I DON'T GO OUT THERE
TO TRY TO VIOLATE THEIR
CIVIL RIGHTS.

I DON'T ACT AS THE JUDGE,
JURY AND EXECUTIONER.

MY MAIN FOCUS
IS TO RAISE AWARENESS,

TO BE OUT THERE,
TO BE A VISUAL DETERRENT

TO PREVENT VIOLENT CRIME.

EVERY DAY
WHEN I PUT ON MY GEAR

AND I BECOME
MR. XTREME,

I'M VERY AFRAID WHEN I GO
OUT THERE ON PATROL.

THE SHIFT THAT
I MIGHT BE WORKING--

IT COULD VERY WELL BE
MY LAST SHIFT.

I MEAN, ANY OF US
CAN BE SHOT, STABBED,

RAT PACKED, RUN OVER
AND SO FORTH.

LATELY I'VE BEEN
TEAMING UP

WITH VIGILANTE SPIDER.

MY NAME IS
THE VIGILANTE SPIDER.

I STARTED OUT
IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA.

I NOW PATROL
MOST OF NORTH COUNTY.

JUST LIKE
ANY OTHER DAY,

YOU WALK DOWNSTAIRS,
YOU HAVE BREAKFAST,

YOU SAY HELLO
TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND,

YOU GO TO WORK,

YOU SAY HI
TO YOUR FRIENDS AT WORK.

AND THEN YOU GO HOME

AFTER ALL
THE MONOTONY IS DONE,

AND YOU SLEEP.
(Laughs)

Man:
SO YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND?

EH, I WAS JUST
METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING.

YOU KNOW, IF REGULAR PEOPLE
CAN DO THIS, WHY CAN'T I?

PEOPLE LIKE BATMAN.
HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY POWERS,

YET HE'S PART
OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE.

SO I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,
"HEY, WELL, I'LL JUST
GO DRESS UP

AND STALK AROUND MY CITY
AND SEE WHAT GOES ON."

AND I'VE BEEN DOING THAT
FOR ABOUT A DECADE NOW.

(Siren whoops)

NOW WE HAVE P.D.
ROLLING UP ON US, SO...

- SO YOU ALREADY TALKED
TO ALL MY PARTNERS, RIGHT?
- YEAH YEAH.

- HE DIDN'T TALK TO THEM.
DO YOU HAVE ANY I.D. ON YOU?
- YES, SIR, I DO.

- CAN I SEE THAT?
- YEAH, NO PROBLEM.

- SO WE KNOW WHO'S
RUNNING AROUND DOWN HERE.
- NOT A PROBLEM.

Mr. Xtreme:
I DEFINITELY WOULD
LIKE TO HAVE

A WORKING RELATIONSHIP
WITH THE POLICE.

IN THE EARLY DAYS I WAS
TRYING TO TAKE A MORE
PROACTIVE APPROACH.

I SHOWED UP
AT THE POLICE STATION.

BUT THAT JUST DIDN'T
PAN OUT TOO WELL

JUST BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES
I WOULD BE ASKED TO LEAVE

OR THEY WOULD
JUST FLIP OUT

AND DEMAND THAT I
TAKE OFF MY COSTUME,

TAKE OFF MY MASK.

SO NOW,
MOST OF THE TIME,

I JUST WAIT FOR PEOPLE
TO APPROACH ME.

VIGILANTE SPIDER,
DO SOMETHING.

UM...

(camera shutter clicks)

OKAY, THAT WORKS.

Mr. Xtreme:
I GET ASKED THAT
QUESTION A LOT,

OF WHY I DON'T CHOOSE
REGULAR LAW ENFORCEMENT.

ME PERSONALLY--
I SIMPLY DON'T WANT
TO BE A COP.

I DON'T WANT TO JUST
DO THIS AS A JOB

AND HAVE TO REPORT
TO SOME CRAPPY-ASS BOSS.

FOR ME
IT'S ABOUT BELIEFS.

YOU KNOW,
I AM A STUDENT

OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE
AND POLICE SCIENCES.

BUT THAT'S
FOR MY BENEFIT HERE

AS MR. XTREME AND
THE XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Lieutenant Andra Brown:
WHILE ON THE SURFACE

THERE MIGHT SEEM TO BE
SOME SIMILARITIES

BECAUSE WE BOTH
WEAR UNIFORMS,

WE BOTH WEAR SOMETHING
THAT IDENTIFIES US.

THE POLICE OFFICER'S
UNIFORM

GIVES PEOPLE CONFIDENCE

THAT A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL
IS HERE,

SOMEONE THAT
THEY RECOGNIZE

AS SOMEONE TO HELP THEM
IS HERE.

UNFORTUNATELY,
A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE

A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO
COSTUME,

AND THEY THINK OF IT
AS JUST THAT-- A COSTUME.

WE'RE GOING.
WE'RE DOING IT.

- OH MY GOD.
- (Screams)

GOOD EVENING.

OH MY GOD.

I AM A KNIGHT FROM HELL

COME TO SALT LAKE CITY

TO TRY TO PROMOTE
GOOD AND WELL-BEING.

MY OUTFIT-- IT'S ALL BLACK
FOR A REASON.

IT'S SO I CAN BLEND IN
WITH THE DARK.

IT'S INTIMIDATION
AND A FEAR TACTIC.

MY COSTUME IS SIMPLE.
IT'S SUPPOSED TO JUST BE

SOMETHING THAT I CAN
SLIP INTO REALLY QUICKLY.

I REALLY VEERED
TOWARD A COSTUME

THAT DEFINITELY WAS

A CLASSIC SUPERHERO IMAGE,
VERY RECOGNIZABLE.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME,
YOU KNOW, I'M WEARING A TIE,

I'M WEARING A VEST.
I'M HERE TO DO BUSINESS.

I WANT IT TO BE FUNCTIONAL.
I WANT IT TO BE PRAGMATIC.

I'M MORE ABOUT HAVING
SOMETHING THAT'S PROTECTIVE.

I LEARNED THAT PROTECTION
WAS VERY VERY IMPORTANT.

IT GIVES ME PROTECTION,
ALSO HAS PADDING IN IT.

AND IT'S MY STYLE.

MY MAIN INSPIRATION WAS
MANGAVERSE SPIDER-MAN.

I GOT THE INSPIRATION
FOR THE HELMET

AS WELL AS THE GOGGLES
FROM THE POWER RANGERS.

THE SHADOW, THE GREEN HORNET,
THE QUESTION.

THE GREEN HORNET
AND OF COURSE THE SPIRIT.

MY COLORS ARE INSPIRED
BY SUPERMAN AND ZORRO.

SILVER AND BLACK--
THOSE ARE THE COLORS

THAT YOU'LL ALWAYS BE ABLE
TO EXPECT ME IN.

IT'S HARD TO BE BLACK AND WHITE
IN THE VERY GRAY WORLD
THAT WE LIVE IN.

I DO THIS WEARING
A MASK AND A COSTUME

BECAUSE IT DRAWS ATTENTION
TO WHAT I'M DOING.

AND IN DRAWING ATTENTION
TO WHAT I'M DOING,

IT DRAWS ATTENTION
TO THE PROBLEMS

THAT I'M FACING
AND I'M TRYING TO WORK ON.

I DON'T FEEL LIKE
I WEAR A COSTUME.

I FEEL LIKE
I WEAR A UNIFORM.

IT'S MEANT TO BE A TOOL--

A TOOL THAT I CAN USE

TO LIVE A LIFE THAT IS
ADVENTUROUS AND BOLD

AND HELPS OTHER PEOPLE.

"OH, WELL, WHY DO YOU HAVE
TO DO IT IN A COSTUME?"

I SAY, "OH, I DON'T HAVE TO
DO IT IN A COSTUME.

I DO IT IN A COSTUME
SO THAT I CAN BE A SYMBOL

AND I CAN BE,

YOU KNOW, OUTSTANDING
IN MY COMMUNITY."

AND THEN ONE DAY I WAS
JUST HONEST WITH MYSELF

AND REALIZED I DO IT
BECAUSE IT'S HELLA FUN.

Lucid:
I'VE ALWAYS HAD

A FAIRLY ABNORMAL APTITUDE
TOWARDS VIOLENCE.

I DON'T KNOW.
I'M NOT SURE IF IT WAS
MY UPBRINGING OR WHAT,

BUT ADRENALINE
AND RAGE

HAVE BEEN A VERY VITAL
PART OF MY LIFE.

IT'S MY CONFLICTION

AND YET MY PASSION.

FOR ME IT'S NOT SO DIFFICULT
TO GET INTO THE MIND
OF A CRIMINAL,

BECAUSE I USED TO BE
A CRIMINAL.

YOU KNOW,
I USED TO SELL DRUGS.

I USED TO WOMANIZE.

I USED TO BE
BORDERLINE ALCOHOLIC.

YOU NAME IT.

I DO THIS

BECAUSE IT GIVES ME
AN OUTLET.

IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE
I'M DOING SOMETHING

A LITTLE BIT BEYOND
ANYBODY ELSE.

AND IT TAKES UP
SOMETHING

THAT I GAVE UP--
THE ALCOHOL.

YEAH, I GREW UP
IN A BAD NEIGHBORHOOD.

I USED TO BE AFFILIATED
WITH GANGS.

SO COMING INTO THIS,
IT'S LIKE I NEEDED TO MAKE
THE CHANGE.

THAT'S WHY LOOKING
AT THE MASK SOMETIMES,

IT STILL REMINDS ME
THAT I ALWAYS HAD
THAT BAD SIDE,

BUT NOW IT'S TIME
TO TAKE CONTROL OVER IT
AND DO GOOD.

Mr. Xtreme:
WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER
I GOT JUMPED BY GANG MEMBERS

AND IT TOOK ME--
IT TOOK ME A WHILE

TO EVEN BE ABLE
TO WALK DOWN THE STREET.

I REALLY WANTED
TO HURT PEOPLE.

AND I WANTED TO FIND SOMEBODY
THAT I COULD HURT.

THAT TRANSLATED TO MUGGERS
AND RAPISTS AND PEDOPHILES,

AND ANYBODY
THAT SOCIETY SAW

AS THEIR MOST
HEINOUS OFFENDERS.

AND I REALLY
JUST WANTED TO GO OUT
AND FIND THOSE GUYS

AND I WANTED
TO HURT THEM.

AND, YOU KNOW,
ONCE OR TWICE

I-- I THINK
I WENT A LITTLE--

I WENT A LITTLE OVERBOARD
ON SOME PEOPLE, YOU KNOW?

FOR REAL-LIFE SUPERHEROES,
THEY MAY HAVE EXPERIENCED

SIGNIFICANT ADVERSITY
OR TRAUMA

THAT LEFT THEM WITH A SENSE
OF MISSION AND PURPOSE.

OFTEN THE ANSWER THAT
THEY END UP FINDING IS,

"THIS HAPPENED TO ME
FOR A REASON,

AND IT IS SO THAT
I CAN DO GOOD."

I LEARNED TO FUNNEL MY RAGE
IN A WAY THAT'S BECOME
PRODUCTIVE,

A WAY THAT CAN ACTUALLY
BENEFIT PEOPLE

INSTEAD OF JUST
HURTING PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW, I FEEL LIKE
THROUGHOUT MY LIFE

I HAVE HURT ENOUGH PEOPLE

WHERE I FEEL LIKE I NEED
TO GIVE BACK.

(Drill buzzing)

Robin S. Rosenberg:
THERE'S SOME PSYCHOLOGICAL
RESEARCH ON MASKING

AND PEOPLE REPORT
FEELING MORE ANONYMOUS

IN THE SENSE
THAT THEY FEEL

LESS LIKE THEIR
USUAL SELVES,

SO IT'S EASIER,
IN A SENSE;

THAT BY DONNING
THE COSTUME,

THEY ARE ALLOWING

THEIR ALTER EGO,
IF YOU WILL,

TO COME OUT
MORE READILY.

TO TAKE
A TRAUMATIC EVENT

AND FIND MEANING
FROM IT

BY WANTING THEN
TO DO GOOD FOR OTHERS

IS A WONDERFUL GIFT
BOTH TO ONESELF AND TO
OTHER PEOPLE.

Master Legend:
MY DAD PUT ME IN
THE KU KLUX KLAN.

AND I WAS PUT
INTO A RING

WHERE I USED TO
HAVE TO FIGHT PEOPLE,

HAD TO FIGHT MY FRIENDS
AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

AND ME AND MY FRIEND
WOULD HATE IT,

BUT WE WERE FORCED
TO DO IT.

IF I DIDN'T WIN THE FIGHT,
I WOULDN'T GET NO DINNER
THAT NIGHT

AND I'D BE LOCKED
IN A CLOSET FOR THE NIGHT.

I NEVER CHOSE THAT--
THAT LIFE,

BUT I WAS FORCED
INTO IT.

IT WAS BY THE GOOD GRACES
OF MY GRANDMA--

MY GRANDMA
HAD TAUGHT ME

ALL THE THINGS OF BEING
A GOOD CHRISTIAN MAN.

AND I REALIZED THEN

THAT EVEN THOUGH I WAS TAUGHT
BY PEOPLE OF HATRED,

THAT MY POWERS WERE
TO BE USED

TO DO GOOD THINGS.

SO THAT'S WHAT I DO.

(Gulping)

AH!

ALL RIGHT, DELICIOUS.

WE'RE GONNA DO
THE BEST WE CAN HERE,

IF SECURITY HASN'T
STOPPED ME FROM MY ANTICS.

PEOPLE GET A LITTLE
WORRIED, IT SEEMS.

HEY, WHY SHOULD
THEY BE WORRIED?
IT'S MY LIFE.

UH-OH.
WE'RE GONNA DIE.

EH, ALL RIGHT.

NOW YOU DON'T WANT THIS
DOOR TO CLOSE ON YOU,

JUST IN CASE WE CAN'T GET
THROUGH THE OTHER DOOR.

SO I'LL USE THIS SHIRT.

(Grunts)

UH-OH.

THIS IS THE OVERALL VIEW
OF ORLANDO.

THIS IS THE TOWN
THAT I DEFEND,

THAT I LOOK UP
AND TRY TO DO MY BEST

TO HELP THE PEOPLE
OF THIS CITY.

THAT COURTHOUSE THERE IS
ACTUALLY A PLACE OF EVIL.

WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS
THROWING HOMELESS PEOPLE
IN JAIL,

AND PEOPLE FOR PETTY
LITTLE CRIMES

LIKE SHOPLIFTING
OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,

JUST TRYING TO GET
A MEAL TO EAT.

AND THEY THROW THEM IN JAIL
JUST TO MAKE MONEY.

AND THAT'S WHAT THAT
COURTHOUSE DOES.

IT'S A COURTHOUSE
OF EVIL,

JUST SO YOU KNOW.
MASTER LEGEND TOLD YOU.

ALL RIGHT,
LET'S GO IN HERE

AND IF Y'ALL DON'T MIND,
I'M A LITTLE THIRSTY.

IF YOU DON'T MIND,
LET'S HAVE OURSELVES A DRINK.

HEY THERE.
I'M MASTER LEGEND

- AND A REAL-LIFE S--
- DO YOU HAVE A CARD?

NO, I'M SORRY.

- I DON'T HAVE
NO CARDS WITH ME.
- AWW.

- I CHANGED MY NUMBER RECENTLY,
SO MY CARDS AREN'T NO GOOD.
- OH, GOT IT.

BECAUSE OF CONSTANT
THREATS AND ALL THAT,

- YOU KNOW, BEING--
- OH NO.

YEAH, YOU WOULDN'T
BELIEVE IT,

- BUT AS BEING
A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO...
- (laughs)

...YOU RUN INTO
THAT KIND OF STUFF.

- YOU DO.
- I BET YOU DO, YEAH.

OH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU KNOW, A SUPERHERO
WORKS UP A WHOPPING THIRST.

YEAH, ARE YOU HERE
FOR THE--?

OOPS.
(Laughs)

DO YOU LIVE HERE
IN FLORIDA?

I DO.
I GO TO SCHOOL HERE.

OH, YOU'RE GOING TO SCHOOL.
AND WHAT ARE YOU TAKING UP?

I'M A PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR.

PSYCHOLOGY?

I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME
THAT PSYCHOLOGY

IS PROBABLY ONE OF
THE GREATEST WEAPONS

AGAINST EVIL
AND ALL THAT THERE IS.

- I'M GONNA WRITE DOWN
A FEW THINGS HERE.
- OKAY, COOL.

- I ALWAYS TRY TO KEEP
SOME PAPER HANDY.
- OH, THAT'S REALLY SMART.

I HAVE
A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
KNOWN AS TEAM JUSTICE.

OKAY, COOL.

AND WE'RE NOT ASKING
FOR DONATIONS,

BUT AT LEAST
WE'RE LEGITIMATE.

OH, WELL,
IT'S NICE MEETING YOU,
MASTER LEGEND.

- I SURELY LIKED
MEETING YOU TOO.
- THANKS.

YOU'RE A VERY PRETTY LADY.
AND LET ME SEE-- TERESA?

- WHAT WAS IT?
- TIFFANY.

TIFFANY.
I'M SORRY.

WELL, IT'S BEEN GREAT
TO BE IN THE COMPANY

OF VERY
BEAUTIFUL WOMEN.

BUT SOON WE WILL
GET ON OUR WAY

TO GO HELP OUT SOME
DESPERATE PEOPLE.

IT'LL BE FUN.

Z:
I REALLY STARTED
RUNNING AROUND

WITH A MASK ON
AT NIGHT,

THINKING I WAS GOING TO
DO SOMETHING, YOU KNOW?

BUT THE PEOPLE WHO DO
THE KIND OF STUFF THAT
I'M OUT THERE TO STOP--

THERE'S GUYS THAT
WANT TO TAKE, YOU KNOW,
ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE

THAT ARE AT ONE OF THEIR
WEAKEST MOMENTS,

THEY DON'T-- THEY DON'T
DO IT OBVIOUSLY.

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE--
THEY'RE GOOD AT IT.
YOU KNOW?

SO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO
IS YOU GOT TO PUT A LITTLE
BAIT OUT THERE FOR THEM.

I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT
THE THREE TYPES OF PEOPLE

THAT DO THINGS
IN THE STREET AT NIGHT,
AND THAT'S--

YOU GOT YOUR MUGGERS,

YOUR RAPISTS
AND YOUR CAR THIEVES.

BEGINNING OF THE NIGHT,
WE DECIDE WHETHER
WE WANT TO BE

MORE ARMORED OR FASTER.
SO WE EITHER ARMOR UP MORE

OR WE PUT ON LIGHTER CLOTHES
THAT ARE DARKER, SO WE CAN
BLEND IN BETTER.

WE SUIT UP
EITHER ZIMMER OR T.S.A.F.

AND WE SEND THEM OUT
INTO THE FIELD.

Zimmer:
BEING OPENLY GAY

IS SOMETHING THAT IS
VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,

THAT'S VERY NEAR
AND DEAR TO MY HEART.

SO I NEVER
PATROLLED IN A MASK,
BECAUSE WEARING A MASK

AND HAVING A DIFFERENT NAME
AND DIFFERENT LIFE

FELT TOO MUCH LIKE
BEING IN THE CLOSET.

MY MUGGABLE CHARACTER IS
A VERY GAY FLAMBOYANT MAN.

WITH THIS, WE HOPE TO BAIT
PEOPLE WHO ARE HOMOPHOBIC

INTO DOING
SOMETHING CRIMINAL.

THE OTHER THREE ACT
AS BASICALLY BODYGUARDS
AT A DISTANCE.

Lucid:
WE TRAIL THEM,
KEEP IN COMMUNICATION.

IF ANYTHING HAPPENS,
WE ROLL IN.

YOU KNOW,
WE EITHER GRAB I.D.s
TO TRAIL THE PERP LATER

OR WE DO
A CITIZEN'S ARREST.

Lieutenant Brown:
BAIT PATROL DOES SEEM TO BE
A FORM OF ENTRAPMENT.

IT'S ON THE FINE LINE.

BUT IF THAT PERSON,
THAT BAIT,

HADN'T BEEN SENT OUT THERE
TO ENTICE SOMEONE

TO ROB THEM
OR BEAT THEM,

OR WHATEVER THE OBJECT
OF THAT PARTICULAR
BAIT PATROL WAS,

YOU KNOW, IT SOUNDS LIKE
SOMEONE IS BEING ENTRAPPED
AT THAT POINT.

YOU'RE DEFINITELY MUGGABLE.

AWESOME.
I'M GLAD I'M MUGGABLE.

I THINK I'M FEELING LIKE
MUGGING YOU RIGHT NOW.

ALL RIGHT, YEAH.

I THINK ANYONE SEEING ME
WEARING THIS OUTFIT

- WILL MUG ME
ON GENERAL PRINCIPLE.
- YEAH.

Zimmer:
SO YOU GUYS
ARE GONNA LEAVE.

YOU'RE GONNA WALK A BLOCK
TO THE RIGHT-- WEST.

WE'RE GONNA GO UP
AND TAKE UP THE POST

ON THE NEXT STREET UP FROM
HANCOCK AND BROADWAY.

RIGHT, AND THEN
I'M GONNA WALK OUT.
WHEN YOU SEE ME,

START WALKING
TO THE NEXT ONE.
I'LL WALK TO YOUR POSITION.

DO YOU WANT ME
TO LEAVE NOW?

T.S.A.F.,
DO YOU HAVE KEYS?

ALL RIGHT.

Z, LUCID, YOU GUYS,
CAN YOU SEE ME?

I'M LIKE A BLOCK AWAY
FROM YOU.

- IT'S STARTING TO RAIN.
- (Thunder crashing)

Z. OH, I SEE YOU NOW.

ALL RIGHT, IT LOOKS LIKE
WE'RE GOING HOME.

IT'S STARTING TO RAIN,
SO WE'RE CALLING THIS
BAIT PATROL OFF.

WE'LL HEAD OUT
AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT
AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

(Tires screech)

HI. I KNOW
I LOOK RIDICULOUS,
BUT I'M AN E.M.T.

DID THEY
RUN OVER YOUR FOOT?

YEAH, LOOK,
IT'S GOING TO SWELL UP.
I DON'T WANT TO MOVE IT.

I JUST GOT HIT.
YOU SEE THIS HERE?

I'M PUSHING MY PUSHCART,

AND IT GOES ASS OVER HEAD,
AND I GO WITH IT.

SO YOU THINK
SHE HIT THE BIG TOE?
SO WHEN IT HIT, IT--?

YEAH, I HAVE NO NAIL
THERE ANYMORE.

RIGHT.
SO BOTH OF THESE?

- THESE THREE.
- THESE-- THOSE THREE.

- RIGHT HERE.
- ALL RIGHT.

Zimmer:
FOR THE PAST FIVE MONTHS
I'VE BEEN IN AN E.M.T. SCHOOL.

I'M GOING THROUGH
E.M.T. CERTIFICATION.

AND I RECENTLY TOOK
MY PRACTICAL SKILLS EXAM
AND PASSED IT.

I HAVE ONE MORE
STATE WRITTEN EXAM,

AND I'LL BE
A FULLY-CERTIFIED E.M.T.,

CERTIFIED TO TREAT
BULLET WOUNDS, KNIFE WOUNDS,

ANY KIND OF
ACCIDENTAL TRAUMA.

AND I THINK THIS IS GONNA BE
REALLY USEFUL FOR PATROLS,

TO HAVE THAT BACKUP.

- (Grunts)
- WHERE ARE YOU HEADED?
WE'LL WALK YOU HOME.

- I'M GOING RIGHT HERE,
COME ON.
- ALL RIGHT.

I WANT YOU TO TELL MY WIFE
WHAT HAPPENED.

Lucid:
WE SET IT UP PERFECTLY,

AND YET EVERYTHING
FELL APART, YOU KNOW.

THERE WAS NOTHING WE COULD DO.
IT'S COMPLETELY OUT
OF OUR CONTROL.

BUT THEN, YOU KNOW,
THE STREET

KIND OF GAVE BACK
A LITTLE BIT.

IT WAS VERY SERENDIPITOUS
WHERE THERE WAS STILL--

YOU KNOW,
THERE WAS STILL

A LOT OF GOOD
THAT COULD BE DONE.

COME ON.

LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.

A STRING OF GROPING ATTACKS

ON WOMEN IN CHULA VISTA
HAS MANY PEOPLE ON EDGE.

IN RESPONSE, A MEMBER OF
THE XTREME JUSTICE LEAGUE--

THERE IS SUCH A THING--
HAS ARRIVED IN COSTUME

TO HELP POLICE TRACK DOWN
THE GROPER AND FIGHT CRIME.

HE HAS THIS MESSAGE
FOR THE MAN WHO'S BEEN
ON THE PROWL

SINCE LAST SEPTEMBER,
STRIKING FEAR IN
THE COMMUNITY:

YOU CAN RUN,
BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE.

AND ALL I CAN SAY IS,
YOU KNOW:

OUR SCENE IS YOUR FEAR;
EVILDOERS BEWARE;

AND XTREME JUSTICE--

THIS IS NOT THE N.F.L.,
THIS IS THE X.J.L.

Mr. Xtreme's mom:
MY SISTER CALLED ME UP.

SHE SAW SOMEBODY
IN THE NEWS.

AND FROM THE WAY HE TALK

AND THE WAY HE WALK,

SHE RECOGNIZED HIM.

AND SHE TOLD ME

IT'S ALMOST 100 %
IT'S MY OLDEST SON.

MY PARENTS? YEAH,
THEY TRY TO DISCOURAGE ME,

BUT PRETTY MUCH
I'VE GOTTEN USED TO IT.

AND I THINK
THEY'RE PRETTY MUCH
GONNA GET USED TO,

YOU KNOW,
THE CHOSEN PATH IN MY LIFE.

Mr. Xtreme's mom:
I DO NOT APPROVE WHAT
HE MAKES CHOICE.

MY HUSBAND DID NOT
APPROVE THAT NEITHER.

BUT WE STAND BY HIM
AND WE SUPPORT HIM.

IT IS A GOOD THING--

A GOOD THING FOR OTHERS.

MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD THING
FOR HIMSELF.

Mr. Xtreme:
I'M CURRENTLY A WHITE BELT

IN BRAZILIAN JU-JITSU.

AND I'M PREPARING
FOR MY FIRST TOURNAMENT
THIS WEEKEND

TO HOPEFULLY ADVANCE
TO THE BLUE BELT LEVEL.

IT'S AN EVENT CALLED
"GRAPPLING X"--

BASICALLY A FREESTYLE
SUBMISSION GRAPPLING
TOURNAMENT.

THAT'S WHAT
I'M HOPING TO DO--

YOU KNOW, SHOW THEM
I GOT WHAT IT TAKES.

PARTICIPATING
IN AN ACTUAL TOURNAMENT

IS PROBABLY AS REALISTIC
TO REAL COMBAT
AS YOU CAN GET.

IT REALLY SIMULATES

THE STRESS
OF A REAL SITUATION.

Mr. Xtreme's mom:
I THINK HE DID HIS BEST.

BUT BEING WORKING,

LIKE, ALMOST TWO
FULL-TIME JOBS,

HE REALLY DIDN'T
HAVE THE ENERGY

AND PRACTICE TO FIGHT
WITH THESE STRONG GUYS.

BUT I BELIEVE
IF YOU DID YOUR BEST,

WHATEVER OUTCOME,
DOESN'T MATTER.

HE WAS A REALLY
HAPPY BABY

UNTIL 17 MONTHS LATER

WHEN I WENT
TO THE HOSPITAL

TO GIVE BIRTH
TO HIS BROTHER.

HE ASKED HIS GRANDMA
WHERE WAS MOMMY.

HIS GRANDMA TOLD HIM,

BECAUSE HE WAS A BAD BOY,

HIS MOMMY WENT
TO THE HOSPITAL

TO GET ANOTHER
NEW BABY.

EVER SINCE THEN

HE WAS REALLY SAD.

Mr. Xtreme:
I'M GONNA BE MOVING OUT

OF THE XTREME CAVE,
XTREME OPS,

BECAUSE I DON'T WANT
TO LIVE

IN THE SAME COMMUNITY
THAT I PATROL IN

IF I CAN HELP IT.

SAY, IF I EVER COME
ACROSS A SITUATION--

I THWART A DRUG DEAL
OR I PISS OFF

ONE OF THESE VILLAINS,
ONE OF THESE EVILDOERS,

AND THEY FIND OUT
WHERE I LIVE.

AND THE LAST THING
I NEED TO DO IS,

OH, AT 3:00 IN THE MORNING
THEY COME UP AND SHOOT UP
MY HOUSE,

OR FUCKING THROW
A MOLOTOV COCKTAIL
IN MY YARD OR SOMETHING.

MY DAD DOESN'T LIKE
ME BEING A REAL-LIFE
SUPERHERO AT ALL.

WHEN HE FOUND OUT,
HE JUST WAS PRETTY UPSET.

HE'S VERY MUCH
AGAINST IT.

AND HE WANTS ME TO--
WANTS ME TO QUIT.

Mr. Xtreme's dad:
VERY DANGEROUS,

AND I KEEP TELLING HIM,
"YOU NEED TO STOP."

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU
HAVE A BULLETPROOF VEST

OR WHATEVER PROTECTION
YOU HAVE.

ALL IT TAKES
IS ONE GOOD SHOT,
AND YOU'RE DONE.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE A CALL
AT 2:30 IN THE MORNING

AND THEN GO
IDENTIFY THE BODY.

THAT'S WHAT
I DON'T WANT.

Mr. Xtreme:
I'M TRYING TO OPERATE
WITH LESS SPACE,

SO I CAN HAVE
MORE MONEY TO SPEND.

SO I'M GONNA BE KIND OF
CAMPING OUT IN A VAN.

THE MONEY THAT I WON'T BE
SPENDING ON RENT--

I'M GONNA BE USING IT
TO PAY FOR EQUIPMENT,

PRINTING, AND MORE MONEY
INTO MY TRAINING NEEDS.

Mr. Xtreme's mom:
I DIDN'T THINK MY SON

IS A SUPERHERO.

SOMEONE SAID,
"HE'S A FOOL."

I DON'T THINK HE'S
NEITHER SUPERHERO OR A FOOL.

TO ME, HE'S JUST
A SIMPLE PERSON.

HE KNOWS
HOW TO GIVE,

BUT HE NEVER KNOWS
HOW TO ASK FOR HELP
FOR HIMSELF.

AND THAT'S IT.

WHEN YOU'RE A MAN
THAT'S HAD AS MANY INJURIES
THAT I'VE HAD,

YOU KNOW,
YOU DESERVE A BEER.

I'VE HAD MORE INJURIES
THAN EVEL KNIEVEL,

AND HE'S ALL WASHED UP
AND DEAD NOW.

BUT GUESS WHAT.
MASTER LEGEND'S NOT.

(Grunts)

I REALLY DON'T LIKE TO HAVE
A LOT OF WEAPONS...

BECAUSE I'VE GOT
SPIRITUAL POWERS

BEYOND THAT OF ORDINARY
MORTAL PEOPLE.

BUT STILL, THOUGH,

I DO CARRY
A FEW WEAPONS AROUND.

THIS CAME
FROM NEUROCYBE'X.

MY GOOD FRIEND
NEUROCYBE'X

GAVE ME THIS.

SUPERHEROES, UNLESS THEY
HAPPEN TO ALSO BE
A POLICE OFFICER,

ARE NOT TRAINED
LAW ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONALS.

I THINK THAT CARRYING WEAPONS
IS A BAD IDEA.

THIS LOOKS LIKE

AN INNOCENT ENOUGH
FLASHLIGHT.

THROW A SWITCH--

90,000-VOLT STUN GUN.

I DO LIKE TO KNOW
WHAT I'M WORKING WITH.

I HAVE BEEN
MACED BEFORE.

IT'S UNPLEASANT.

I HAVE BEEN TASED
BY MY OWN STUN GUN BEFORE--

AGAIN, EQUALLY UNPLEASANT.

16" BATONS.

AND I WILL PULL THESE
AND DEFEND MYSELF

AND ANYBODY ELSE THAT'S
IN THE AREA WITH THEM.

THIS IS A NICE LITTLE
RING I CREATED

CALLED
"THE PHARAOH'S FIRE"--

FOR DISTRACTION.

THIS HERE
IS THE IRON FIST--

THE IRON FIST,

CAPABLE OF DEMOLISHING

MANY THINGS.

Zimmer:
AN AVERAGE MILITARY
TACTICAL FLASHLIGHT,

A REALLY REALLY BRIGHT ONE,
WILL BE 100-115 LUMENS.

THIS GOES UP TO
500 LUMENS.

THIS COULD BE A REALLY GOOD
DISTRACTION TOOL.

BEAR MACE IS ACTUALLY
WAY STRONGER

THAN C.N. OR O.C.
OR C.S.

AND THE REASON I LIKE
A BIG CAN OF IT

IS BECAUSE YOU GET
MUCH MORE DISTANCE.

I'VE COME ACROSS THINGS
THAT I CAN'T SEE VERY WELL.

MY EYES ARE
GOING ON ME.

THIS LASER--
IT'S A 3A LASER.

- SONIC GRENADE.
- (Beeping)

I HAVE THE NEW
TIGERLIGHT T100.

A MINI-BLOWTORCH,
AIR HORN.

I ACTUALLY INCORPORATE
SOME TOOTSIE ROLLS.
I DON'T KNOW WHY.

WHAT IT BASICALLY DOES
IS TURN A SERIES OF
FLASHING LIGHTS

AND PLUGS IT IN
RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES.

AND THEY PULSE
IN BRAINWAVE FREQUENCIES.

PEPPER SPRAY.

MACE PEPPER GUN.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE
MY SNAKE LIGHT IS
DEAD RIGHT NOW.

Super Hero:
KEEP IT ON THE SIDE
OF YOUR RIG.

IT DOESN'T GET IN THE WAY,
BUT WHEN YOU NEED IT TO,

OUT IT COMES
LIKE THAT.

BECAUSE WHEN I
SHOOT YOU, WHEN I--

AN ICE CUBE
THROUGH YOUR HEAD,

AND IT MELTS AWAY,

WELL, I DON'T THINK
THERE'S MUCH

PEOPLE GONNA BE ABLE
TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

DON'T TEMPT ME,
'CAUSE I WILL DO IT.

Zimmer: RIGHT NOW
THE NEW YORK INITIATIVE

IS TRYING TO TRAIN
AND GET READY AND PREPARE.

PREPARATION IS
REALLY IMPORTANT

AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT
A LOT OF PEOPLE SKIP OVER.

T.S.A.F.:
WE'RE NOT PROFESSIONALS.

WE'RE NOT PEOPLE
THAT HAVE BEEN TRAINED
TO DO THIS SORT OF WORK.

THIS IS-- THIS IS
ALL GROUNDBREAKING.

THIS IS ALL THE FIRST TIME
IT'S BEEN DONE THIS WAY.

AND WE'RE LEARNING.

ALL RIGHT, OW.

- YOU OKAY?
- YEAH. NO BLOOD.

T.S.A.F.:
I THINK IT STARTS
WITH THE INDIVIDUAL.

WHEN PEOPLE BEGIN
TO TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY
FOR THEMSELVES,

THEN I THINK
WE CAN SEE CHANGE.

REMEMBER, TONIGHT
ONLY USE CODE NAMES--

Z, LUCID,
T.S.A.F., ZIMMER--

NOTHING ELSE.
NO REAL NAMES.

(Radio chirps)

Lucid over radio:
10-4.

(Dogs barking)

(speaking over radio)

Lucid:
JESUS CHRIST.

(Lucid sighs)

Z:
Everybody copy that?

T.S.A.F.:
Copy.

Zimmer:
Copy.

I THINK
WE SHOULD TAKE A LEFT
AND START HEADING WEST.

THERE'S JUST NO PEOPLE
OUT HERE, MAN.

(Sighs)

IT'S TAKING A LONG TIME
TO CATCH ANY KIND OF GROUND.

Z:
Test test test.

Lucid:
COPY.

HE'S GONNA HIT THAT--

OH, HE'S GONNA HIT
THAT FUCKING CAR.

YEP.

GOD DAMN.
GET HIS LICENSE PLATE.

GUYS, GOT 8--
GO AHEAD. GO AHEAD.

Z:
Get his fucking
plate number.

T.S.A.F.:
COULD YOU REPEAT THAT?

Lucid:
That Land Rover
right there, guys,

that just passed you
taking a right--

GET HIS LICENSE PLATE.
HE JUST HIT THIS CAR
OVER HERE.

THIS LAND ROVER?

HE TOOK A RIGHT
OVER THIS WAY.

ARE YOU--
ARE YOU OKAY?

Zimmer:
THIS GUY WAS REALLY ANGRY.
WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BEST

IF HE WAS NOT DRIVING TONIGHT,
IF HE WAS ALREADY SIDESWIPING
A VEHICLE.

(Mumbling
unintelligibly)

- T.S.A.F.: YOU NEED TO
PICK UP SOME DRUGS?
- YEAH.

- YOU'RE NOT DOING
ANYTHING RIGHT NOW.
- I HAVE TO GO NOW.

Zimmer:
WE CALLED THE POLICE TWICE.

WE GAVE A DESCRIPTION
OF THE VEHICLE,
LICENSE PLATES.

- STANHOPE AND
CENTRAL AVENUE?
- Lucid: YES.

Zimmer:
THEY SAID THEY WERE SENDING
A PATROL VEHICLE OVER.

FINALLY A COP CAR
CAME BY

AFTER I CALLED
THE SECOND TIME.

YO!

WE TRIED TO FLAG THEM DOWN,
BUT THEY ROLLED RIGHT ON BY.

THEY DIDN'T EVEN STOP.

SO THAT WAS
REALLY FRUSTRATING.

AT THIS POINT WE KNEW
THAT THE POLICE

WEREN'T GOING TO BE RELIABLE
FOR THIS SITUATION.

SO WE GOT
CONSENT FROM THE GUY
TO TAKE HIS KEYS.

I'M GONNA MAIL THEM
BACK TO HIM TOMORROW.

- I'M CALLING YOU RIGHT NOW.
- NO, GIVE ME YOUR NUMBER.

- (Cell phone rings)
- I'M CALLING YOU. SEE?

NOW YOU HAVE MY NUMBER.
YOU CAN CALL ME.

I'M GONNA MAIL YOU
YOUR KEYS, ALL RIGHT?

SHH.

ALL RIGHT.

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT,
BROTHER.

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.

- TAKE CARE.
- ALL RIGHT, YOU TOO.

Zimmer:
AS FAR AS I KNOW,
HE'S PASSED OUT IN HIS CAR

SAFE AND SOUND,
NOT DRIVING DRUNK TONIGHT.

IS HE OKAY?

YOU'RE MAILING
THE GUY'S KEYS BACK
TO HIM TOMORROW, RIGHT?

Zimmer:
YES.

PROBABLY SAVED HIS LIFE
AND SOMEONE ELSE'S.

Mr. Xtreme:
THERE'S A LOT OF-- A LOT
OF BAD APPLES AROUND HERE.

YOU KNOW, AND THIS AREA'S
NOT NECESSARILY BAD,

BUT YOU HAVE, LIKE,
A LOT OF THESE--
A LOT OF THESE

SLIMEBALLS AND,
YOU KNOW, SLEAZE BUCKETS

THAT DRIVE AROUND

LOOKING FOR PEOPLE
TO PREY ON.

THIS DIRT LOT--

A LOT OF COLLEGE STUDENTS--
THEY USE IT AS A SHORTCUT.

BACK IN OCTOBER
OF LAST YEAR

A YOUNG FEMALE
COLLEGE STUDENT

WAS FOLLOWED
BY SIX MEN.

THEY PINNED HER DOWN
AND SEXUALLY ASSAULTED HER.

I MYSELF-- I WISH
I WAS THERE THAT NIGHT.

THIS SENSELESS VIOLENCE
LIKE THIS--

WHAT HAPPENED
TO THIS VICTIM,

IT MAKES ME FEEL
VERY ANGRY.

IT KIND OF LEAVES ME
ALSO IN A STATE OF
DISILLUSIONMENT

ABOUT SOCIETY
IN GENERAL.

I HAVE A PICTURE OF
KITTY GENOVESE ON MY UNIFORM.

"38 WITNESSES"--
IT REPRESENTS

THE 38 PEOPLE
THAT SHUT THE WINDOW,

THAT PULLED
THE BLINDS DOWN--

YOU KNOW, THE PEOPLE THAT
JUST DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

THINGS LIKE THAT
JUST SHOULDN'T HAPPEN,

YOU KNOW, BUT UNFORTUNATELY
IT STILL DOES.

THERE'S REAL FACES

BEHIND, YOU KNOW,
ALL THIS VIOLENCE,

ALL THIS MADNESS,
ALL THIS CHAOS GOING ON
OUT THERE.

THAT'S PART OF THE REASON
WHY THIS MOVEMENT EXISTS.

THE URBAN AVENGER--
HE HAS BEEN

WITHIN THE R.L.S.H. COMMUNITY
FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS NOW.

AND HE'S PROVEN
TO BE VERY DEDICATED.

I CONTACTED MR. XTREME

AFTER REALIZING I WANTED
TO BECOME A SUPERHERO.

I ACTUALLY HEARD ABOUT HIM
FROM A FRIEND OF MINE

WHO HAD READ ABOUT HIM
IN THE MEDIA.

I'D SAY I'M EXTREMELY
COMMITTED.

IT'S SOMETHING
I REALLY BELIEVE IN.

Mr. Xtreme:
EARLY FRIDAY MORNING
A YOUNG GIRL--

SHE WAS ONLY 15 YEARS OLD--
SHE WAS GUNNED DOWN

AT THE PARK JUST RIGHT DOWN
THE STREET FROM US.

SHE WAS JUST HANGING OUT
WITH SOME FRIENDS.

NO SUSPECTS.
NO ARRESTS HAVE BEEN MADE.

WE'RE OUT HERE HOLDING
THIS CANDLELIGHT VIGIL

TO SHOW SUPPORT
FOR THE FAMILY.

YOU KNOW, 15 YEARS OLD.

YOU KNOW, HER LIFE
HAS NOT EVEN BEGUN YET.

THERE WAS A GUY
WHO GOT STABBED.

AND HE WAS RIGHT OUT--
RIGHT ON THE STREET--

A BUSY STREET.
NOBODY STOPPED TO HELP HIM.

THERE WAS BLOOD
EVERYWHERE.

NOBODY CALLED THE POLICE.
NOBODY EVEN BOTHERED.

Omen:
SEVEN YEARS OR SO AGO
I HAD A FRIEND

WHO WAS BEATEN TO DEATH
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY.

AND NOBODY STOPPED AT ALL
TO HELP HIM.

AND SO I VOWED
FROM THAT DAY FORTH

TO BASICALLY PREVENT
STUFF LIKE THAT HAPPENING.

I JUST NEVER WANT THAT
TO HAPPEN AGAIN.

APATHY IS EVERYWHERE.
PEOPLE DON'T CARE.

APATHY IS THE DRIVING FORCE
IN TODAY'S SOCIETY, I THINK.

Mr. Xtreme:
YOU KNOW, PEOPLE LOOK AT US AS,
OH, WE'RE NOT NORMAL.

BUT PEOPLE THAT ARE
SITTING IDLY BY

AS THUGS AND KILLERS
TAKE OVER OUR COMMUNITIES--

THOSE PEOPLE, IN MY BOOK,
ARE NOT THE NORMAL ONES.

WE'RE THE NORMAL ONES.

WE'RE THE ONES
THAT ARE CIVIL-MINDED.

YEAH, I KNOW THAT
IT PUTS PEOPLE IN DANGER

TO SPEAK UP,
TO SAY SOMETHING.

BUT WHAT IF IT WERE YOU?
WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR BROTHER,

YOUR SISTER, ANY FAMILY MEMBER,
ANYBODY YOU CARE ABOUT,
YOUR FRIEND?

ARE YOU GONNA STAND BY
AND SAY NOTHING?

Mr. Xtreme:
IN THIS DAY AND AGE

WITH ALL THE GLORIFICATION
OF VIOLENCE,

IT SEEMS LIKE
LIFE MEANS NOTHING.

BUT LIFE--
LIFE IS EVERYTHING.

AND IT'S SOMETHING
THAT CAN NEVER BE TAKEN
FOR GRANTED.

Dark Guardian:
MY FAMILY IS VERY
SUPPORTIVE OF WHAT I DO.

BUT IN DOING DANGEROUS
THINGS LIKE, YOU KNOW,

CONFRONTING DRUG DEALERS
AND CRIMINALS,

THEY FEAR
FOR MY SAFETY.

OF COURSE I DON'T WANT
TO HAVE ANYTHING HAPPEN
TO MYSELF,

BUT IT'S PART
OF THE JOB.

I'M TRYING TO LIVE UP
TO BEING A SUPERHERO
IN REAL LIFE.

YOU KNOW, TAKING
THE RISK I DO IS--

IT'S ABOUT MAKING
A DIFFERENCE,

YOU KNOW,
WHATEVER THE COST.

YOU GOTTA GO.

YOU GOTTA GET OUT
OF THE PARK.

I GOT YOU ON VIDEO.

I GOT YOU ON AUDIO
SELLING DRUGS.

YOU GOTTA LEAVE.

WHAT DID I SELL, DUDE?

YOU KNOW HOW LONG I'VE
BEEN SITTING HERE, MAN?
WHO ARE YOU ANYWAY, MAN?

WHAT THE FUCK? WHO ARE YOU?
YOU KNOW HOW LONG I'VE BEEN
SITTING HERE?

DUDE, YOU'RE ON FILM
RIGHT THERE, DUDE.

YOU KNOW HOW LONG I'VE
BEEN SITTING HERE, MAN?

- YOU KNOW HOW LONG
I'VE BEEN SITTING HERE?
- I DON'T CARE, DUDE.

YOU'RE NOT SELLING OUT HERE.
YOU'RE BREAKING THE LAW.

YOU KNOW HOW LONG I'VE BEEN
SITTING HERE, MAN? HOW LONG
YOU BEEN LOOKING AT ME?

- YOU LOOKING FOR A SCENE, MAN?
YOU A COP OR SOMETHING?
- NO, DUDE.

- YOU'D BETTER BE A COP.
ARE YOU A COP?
- DUDE, DON'T DO THAT, BRO.

- YOU'D BETTER
HAVE A BADGE, MAN.
- DON'T DO NOTHING, BRO.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BADGE,
DON'T COME OVER HERE
FUCKING WITH ME, MAN.

- DUDE, COME ON.
- ALL RIGHT? MIND YOUR
FUCKING BUSINESS, ALL RIGHT?

NO. THIS IS MY BUSINESS.

- IT'S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.
- YEAH, IT IS.

- IT'S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.
- YEAH, IT IS, BRO.
ALL RIGHT.

IF YOU FUCK WITH ME,
YOU'RE GONNA FIND OUT TOO.
ALL RIGHT?

IT IS WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK.

I'M ON
THE NORTHEAST CORNER.

YOU REALLY WANT TO HAVE
A PROBLEM, DON'T YOU?

YOU REALLY WANT
TO HAVE A PROBLEM.

OKAY.

YEAH, WE'RE RIGHT
ON THE INSIDE.

WE'RE ON THE BENCH.

HE'S WALKING AWAY NOW.

Dark Guardian:
I WANT TO MAKE
A DIFFERENCE SOMEHOW.

YOU KNOW, AND I KNOW
YOU CAN DO THAT IN SO MANY
DIFFERENT WAYS,

BUT I WANTED TO BRING
SUPERHEROES TO LIFE.

AND IN DOING THIS,
I FEEL LIKE I REALLY HAVE.

THE COSTUME IS A SYMBOL
OF SOMEBODY

WHO'S GONNA STAND UP
AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE,

SOMEBODY WHO'S
GONNA STAND UP
WHEN WRONG IS GOING ON.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE NOT
GONNA LOOK THE OTHER WAY
OR CLOSE THE BLINDS.

YOU'RE GONNA GO OUT
AND HELP THAT PERSON
WHO NEEDS IT.

Master Legend:
SOMEBODY HAS TO DO IT.

SOMEBODY HAS TO
GET OUT THERE AND STAND UP

FOR ALL THE STARVING PEOPLE
OUT HERE IN ORLANDO.

SO THAT'S WHY
I STARTED DOING
TEAM JUSTICE OUTREACH.

Super Hero:
OUR YEARLY CHRISTMAS DRIVE

IS THE BIGGEST AND BEST
TIME OF YEAR,

NOT JUST FOR TEAM JUSTICE,
BUT FOR ME PERSONALLY TOO.

WHAT IT'S EVOLVED INTO
OVER THE YEARS

IS GOING FROM HAVING
A FEW BOXES

TO NOW HAVING
HUGE WAGONLOADS

OF TOYS FOR KIDS
AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

AND EVERY YEAR
ON CHRISTMAS DAY

WE GO TO THE MISSION STREET
SHELTER

THAT MASTER LEGEND
KNOWS ABOUT.

WE HAND IT ALL OUT
AND MAKE A BUNCH
OF KIDS HAPPY.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED OUT,

MY FIRST ACTUAL DRIVE
FOR CHRISTMAS MISSION

CHANGED A LOT OF THE WAY
I LOOKED AT THINGS.

IT MADE ME REALIZE
THAT A LOT OF KIDS

DON'T HAVE THE KIND OF STUFF
THAT MOST CHILDREN HAVE,

WHERE THEY CAN
OPEN UP AN X-BOX
OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SO FOR ME,
I THOUGHT IT CHANGED

A LOT OF THE CHRISTMASSES
FOR MOST KIDS.

IT MADE THEIR
CHRISTMAS, YES.

THE COMMUNITY IN ORLANDO
HAS REALLY STARTED

TO ACKNOWLEDGE
THAT WE'RE THERE.

MASTER LEGEND IS LIKE
A LOCAL CELEBRITY.

YEP, I REMEMBER THAT.
HE WAS GIVING OUT A WHOLE
LOT OF STUFF.

THEN THEY WENT
TO THE COALITION.

YOU WENT TO THE COALITION
AND GAVE OUT THE REST OF IT.

I REMEMBER THAT--
IN A WHITE VAN.
I REMEMBER THAT.

YEP, AND I WAS
HOMELESS,

DOWN ON MY LUCK.
HE DID HELP ME OUT.

Master Legend:
I FEEL LIKE AT LEAST
I'M DOING SOMETHING, YOU KNOW?

I DON'T WANT TO FEEL
LIKE SOMEBODY THAT'S
LAYING AROUND

DOING NOTHING,
NOT CARING, YOU KNOW,

NOT CARING ABOUT ANYTHING
THAT'S GOING ON, YOU KNOW?

AT LEAST, I'M--
I'M ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING.

Man:
I THINK IT'S PRETTY COOL.

PEOPLE LAUGH AT HIM AT FIRST,
BUT HE'S A PRETTY SERIOUS DUDE.

HE COMES OVER THERE
WITH COOLERS FULL OF STUFF

AND SNACKS AND EVERYTHING
FOR EVERYBODY, YOU KNOW?

SO I THINK
IT'S A PRETTY NEAT THING
THAT HE'S DOING.

Master Legend:
YOU KNOW, THERE'S REALLY

NOTHING IMPORTANT
IN THIS WORLD.

THAT'S WHERE PEOPLE
ALWAYS MAKE A MISTAKE.

NOTHING IS IMPORTANT
IN THIS WORLD.

WHAT'S IMPORTANT
IS IN THE OTHER WORLD.

Life:
I THINK THAT AS OF LATE

WE'VE BEEN LOSING
OUR HEROES.

AND PEOPLE ARE
LOOKING UP TO,

YOU KNOW, RAPPERS
AND MOVIE STARS.

AND, I MEAN, WHAT HAVE
THESE PEOPLE DONE

THAT'S SO GREAT
THAT DESERVES

THIS KIND OF IDOLATRY
AND ADMIRATION?

AND SO THEN I THINK
PEOPLE TURN BACK

TO THESE SAME
CLASSIC MYTHS,

WHICH IN OUR CASE
IS THE SUPERHERO.

WHAT I AM DOING

IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT
THAN WHO I AM.

I SEE
PEOPLE SUFFERING

THAT SHOULDN'T BE
SUFFERING.

I SEE PEOPLE
ADDICTED TO POISONS
THEY DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND.

I SEE PEOPLE DYING--

MY PEOPLE THAT I HELP.

PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SHOWN
THAT-- THAT PEOPLE CARE.

OH.

Zetaman:
I TALKED TO SOME PEOPLE
AND ASKED THEM,

YOU KNOW, WHAT KIND OF STUFF
WOULD YOU LIKE?

AND THEY TOLD ME,
YOU KNOW, THERE'S THINGS
THAT THEY NEED.

THEY NEED GARBAGE BAGS.
THEY NEED EXTRA
TOILET PAPER--

JUST A BASIC ONE-NIGHT KIT
FOR THE STREET.

HERE YOU GO.

RIGHT NOW
WE ARE ESTIMATING

THE COST OF A ZETAPACK
IS ABOUT $20.

IT'S ME AND MY WIFE--
WE END UP PAYING FOR IT.

Life:
EXCUSE ME, MY FRIEND.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?
REMEMBER ME?

- YEAH, HOW ARE YOU DOING?
- I'M ALL RIGHT.

YOU MISSED THE SOUP
AGAIN TONIGHT.

Life:
I TALK TO PEOPLE,
FIND OUT HOW THEY'RE DOING.

YOU KNOW, A TOUCH IS
VERY IMPORTANT.

AND BASICALLY JUST TRY
TO LET THE HUGE HOMELESS
POPULATION OF NEW YORK KNOW

THAT SOMEBODY
CARES ABOUT THEM
AND THEY'RE NOT FORGOTTEN.

- I'M OKAY.
- YOU OKAY?

DO YOU NEED
A PAIR OF PANTS,

A T-SHIRT, SOCKS?

WHERE ARE YOU
SLEEPING TONIGHT?

I THINK OVER HERE,
LIKE AROUND HERE.

- BY THE BOOKSTORE, RIGHT?
- YEAH.

- YEAH, I'VE SEEN YOU
OVER THERE.
- YEAH.

YEAH, YOU MAKE UP
YOUR LITTLE BED
ALL NICE, RIGHT?

YEAH. GOD BLESS YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU, SIR.
ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

GOD BLESS YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

- YEAH?
- YEAH.

- OKAY.
- OKAY?

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANKS, BOSS.
GOD BLESS YOU.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THAT'S RIGHT, MAN.

GOD BLESS YOU, SIR.

REMIND ME AGAIN
OF YOUR NAME.

LEWIS, THAT'S RIGHT.

- WELL, I'M LIFE.
- OKAY.

Life:
MONEY CAN COME AND GO

AND POSSESSIONS
CAN COME AND GO,

BUT EVERY TIME
I DO A MITZVAH,

EVERY TIME I DO
SOME SORT OF GOOD DEED
AS A SUPERHERO,

IT'S THIS INCREDIBLY
GOOD FEELING.

AND NOBODY EVER CAN
TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME.

Thanatos:
THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN HEROES.

JUST LATELY IT SEEMS
THERE HASN'T BEEN ANY.

AND THE WORLD
NEEDS THEM.

I CAN'T CHANGE EVERYTHING,
BUT I CAN TRY.

TRICK OR TREAT.

- Woman: I'LL HAVE SOME WATER.
- YOU WANT WATER?

- Man: THANATOS?
- YES.

I KNOW YOU, THANATOS.

MY GOD,
HOW ARE YOU DOING?

I AM 62 YEARS OLD.

I'LL BE DOING THIS
FOREVER.

DO YOU NEED ANY
TOILETRIES OR ANYTHING,

OR DEODORANT?

- Woman: OH, THANKS A LOT, MAN.
- YEAH, NO PROBLEM.

Zetaman:
SOMETIMES IT'S
REALLY REALLY HARD,

BECAUSE YOU
MEET SOME PEOPLE,
AND THEY'RE BROKEN.

THEIR SITUATION IS
JUST HORRIBLE.

THERE'S BEEN TIMES
I'VE JUST GOTTEN HOME

AND JUST BEEN LIKE,
"I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE."

BUT, YOU KNOW,
I FEEL LIKE TOO

I DON'T WANT
TO GO HOME AND HIDE.

WELL, ACTUALLY
IT'S REALLY SWEET,

BECAUSE I GOT
ALL MY NECESSITIES--

TOILET PAPER, SOCKS.

AND YOU CAN'T ASK
FOR MUCH MORE, YOU KNOW?

YOU CAN'T ASK
FOR MUCH MORE.

Apocalypse Meow:
ANYTHING WE CAN DO

TO INSPIRE
OTHER GROUPS OF PEOPLE,

TO GIVE THEM IDEAS
OR TO GET THEM EXCITED

ABOUT STARTING SOMETHING
IN THEIR AREA--

WE WANT TO DO THAT.

THERE'S NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE
WHO DO WHAT WE DO.

POLICE HAVE BEEN
AFTER HIM FOR MONTHS,

AND TONIGHT A MAN
ACCUSED OF GROPING
MORE THAN A DOZEN WOMEN

WON'T GET THE CHANCE
TO DO IT AGAIN.

RIGHT NOW HE'S BEING HELD
ON A PROBATION VIOLATION.

HE'LL FACE
OTHER CHARGES LIKELY

IN THE COMING DAYS AS
THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES.

Mr. Xtreme:
AFTER OUR CAMPAIGN

AND THE SEARCH FOR
THE CHULA VISTA GROPER,

DEPUTY MAYOR RUDY RAMIREZ
INVITED US TO BE SPEAKERS

AND HAVE A PRESENTATION
ABOUT SEX OFFENDERS

AT A COMMUNITY FORUM.

I REALLY TREASURE
THAT ANYBODY COMES FORWARD

WITH PASSION
TOWARDS PUBLIC SERVICE

OR DOING SOMETHING,
CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR COMMUNITY.

THAT'S A WONDERFUL THING
WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT.

FRANKLY, WE DON'T HAVE
ENOUGH OF THAT.

YOU CAN HAVE
ALL THE COOLEST GADGETS
OUT THERE, YOU KNOW,

BUT IT'S NOT GONNA DO YOU
ANY GOOD IF YOU DON'T HAVE
THE RIGHT MINDSET.

Rudy Ramirez:
THE WORK THAT MR. XTREME
HAS DONE

WITH POSTING
THE FLYERS

CERTAINLY CONTRIBUTED
TO AN AWARENESS

THAT COULD POSSIBLY
HAVE HAD SOMETHING TO DO

WITH THE CAPTURE
OF THE CHULA VISTA GROPER.

IT'S ALL STUFF
THAT CONTRIBUTES, I THINK,
IN A POSITIVE WAY.

PUBLIC AWARENESS
IS SOMETHING

WHERE HE CAN REALLY BE
VERY VALUABLE.

AND SO WE WANT
TO ENCOURAGE THEM
TO CONTINUE

AND TO DO THEIR WORK
IN A WAY THAT IS, YOU KNOW,

SAFE FOR THEMSELVES
AND FOR EVERYBODY INVOLVED.

(Applause)

IT FEELS REALLY GREAT,
YOU KNOW.

IT FEELS LIKE
WE'RE MAKING PROGRESS,

GETTING OUR MOVEMENT

AND OUR ORGANIZATION
MORE INTO THE MAINSTREAM.

THE ATTENTION THAT
WE GET FROM THESE EVENTS
GENERATES NEW MEMBERS.

YOU KNOW, HAVING THESE
RELATIONSHIPS--

IT'S DEFINITELY A STEP
IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

Male reporter:
SAN DIEGO'S LARGEST
LOCAL EVENT

IS NOW UNDERWAY AT THE FIRST
FULL DAY OF COMIC-CON.

THE ANNUAL CONVENTION
IS EXPECTED TO DRAW

MORE THAN 130,000 PEOPLE
TO THE DOWNTOWN AREA
THIS WEEKEND.

(Distant siren wailing)

HEY, CAN YOU GUYS GET
KIND OF CLOSE TOGETHER?

ALL RIGHT.

(Camera shutter clicks)

AWESOME.

Mr. Xtreme:
WELL, THIS MEETUP

IS TO HELP THE HOMELESS
AND THE NEEDY

BY GIVING THEM
WATER AND FOOD,

ALSO TO JUST LET THEM KNOW
THAT WE'RE THE GOOD GUYS

AND WE'RE, YOU KNOW--
WE'RE HERE TO HELP,

AND ALSO TO PROMOTE
UNITY AND CAMARADERIE

WITHIN THE REAL-LIFE
SUPERHERO SCENE.

Thanatos:
IT'S ONE OF THE MOST
IMPORTANT THINGS WE DO.

ALL OF A SUDDEN
I'M NOT THE ONLY CRAZY
PERSON OUT HERE

IN A MASK AND A COSTUME.
I HAVE A LOT OF
OTHER FRIENDS.

AND WHEN WE LEAVE,

WE TAKE THAT KNOWLEDGE OF
HOW TO FUNCTION AS A TEAM

BACK TO WHEREVER WE ARE

TO MEET UP WITH OTHER PEOPLE
AND SPREAD THAT.

SIR, DID YOU NEED
SOME COLD WATER?

Urban Avenger:
WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS

WE'RE TRYING TO PROMOTE
GOODWILL HERE TODAY.

AND I THINK
WE'RE DOING JUST THAT.

I HOPE THIS CAMPAIGN
GOES WELL.

TODAY IS TODAY
AND TOMORROW WILL BE
ANOTHER DAY.

AND HOPEFULLY TOMORROW
IS JUST LIKE TODAY.

BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

- Woman: MAN,
YOU GUYS ARE FANTASTIC.
- Mr. Xtreme: WE DO WHAT WE CAN.

- YOU GUYS WITH COMIC-CON?
- NO, ACTUALLY WE'RE--
WE'RE THE REAL DEALS.

- YOU'RE THE REAL DEALS, HUH?
- THE REAL DEALS.

Woman:
THAT'S WHAT MATTERS, MAN.
Y'ALL THE REAL DEAL.

Urban Avenger:
YOU GUYS KEEP SAFE TODAY.

- CAPTAIN SAVE-EVERYBODY.
- Urban Avenger: KEEP COOL.

- THANK YOU AGAIN.
- SURE.

Woman:
WE ALL NEED SUPERHEROES
IN OUR LIVES.

PEOPLE LIKE THESE

IS HOW COME
WE ALL LIVE AND SURVIVE.

THEY TAKE CARE OF US.

AND IF PEOPLE SAY
THEY AIN'T REAL,

THEN THEY DON'T KNOW
WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

BECAUSE THIS IS TRUE.
THIS IS REAL.

YOU GUYS LOOK GOOD, MAN.

- YOU GUYS...
- THANK YOU.

Man:
I THINK IT'S REMARKABLE
WHAT THEY DO.

I THINK IT'S
VERY UNSELFISH.

GOOD DAY.

I APPRECIATE IT.
BLESS YOU ALL.

Woman:
WE ALL NEED SUPERHEROES.

AND THOSE ARE SUPERHEROES
RIGHT THERE.

WE NEED THEM
MORE THAN THEY'LL EVER KNOW.

Stan Lee:
I ADMIRE THEIR COURAGE.

I ADMIRE
THEIR OBJECTIVES.

AND WHATEVER
THEY'RE DOING,

I JUST HOPE
THEY'RE SUCCESSFUL AT IT.

Mr. Xtreme:
I MEAN, IT'S NOT
AS EXCITING

AS THE MOVIES
AND THE COMICS

AND ALL THAT STUFF
PORTRAY IT TO BE.

I HAVE THE FREEDOM
TO PRETTY MUCH DO
WHAT I WANT

AND GO OUT
AND HELP PEOPLE.

AND IT'S
AN AWESOME FEELING

JUST GETTING
OUT THERE

AND TRYING TO, YOU KNOW,
DO WHAT I DO.

- Woman: XTREME.
- AN XTREME JUSTICE.
ALRIGHTY.

Dark Guardian:
IF WE ALL DO A LITTLE
SOMETHING,

WE CAN MAKE
THIS PLACE BETTER,

YOU KNOW, THERE'S A HERO
IN EVERYBODY.

AND WE JUST NEED
TO START LETTING IT OUT.

Life:
IF WE CAN GET
REAL-LIFE SUPERHEROES

IN EVERY CITY
IN AMERICA,

I THINK THAT WOULD BE
AN AMAZING THING.

Zimmer:
WE'RE NOT A FAD
THAT'S GOING TO GO AWAY.

THERE MAY NOT BE
THAT MANY OF US.

WE MAY NOT BE THE BEST
AND THE BRIGHTEST,

BUT WE DO WHAT WE CAN
TO DO WHAT WE CARE ABOUT.

Super Hero:
IF EVERYBODY DOES
ONE LITTLE BIT

TO THEIR CORNER
OF THE WORLD,

LIKE RIPPLES IN A POND,
THINGS WILL SPREAD OUT,

AND THINGS CAN BE
MADE BETTER.

Mr. Xtreme:
MORE PEOPLE SIMPLY NEED
TO GET INVOLVED

SO WE CAN REALLY, TRULY
MAKE AN IMPACT OUT THERE.

IT'S NOT THE COSTUME
THAT MAKES YOU A SUPERHERO.

IT'S WHAT'S IN YOUR HEART
AND WHAT YOU DO.

THAT'S WHAT MAKES YOU
A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO.
