Real life superhero Phoenix Jones fights crime, gets his ass kicked

Jan. 11, 2011by:

The costumed superhero above is Phoenix Jones. He is not in THOR, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES or THE AVENGERS. He's a real-life crime fighter in Seattle; the masked alter-ego of a local citizen. For a few months, Phoenix (Mr. Jones?), has been patrolling the streets of Seattle, even foiling a carjacking. But the life of Phoenix Jones is becoming less SUPERMAN and more KICK-ASS as the would-be hero had his ass kicked on Saturday.

Phoenix interrupted a street fight, called 911 and placed one of the assailants in a headlock while he waiting for police to arrive. Only problem? The criminal had friends; friends with guns; friends who pulled out those guns and pointed them at our caped crusader. Phoenix wisely released the man from his vice grip and, once free, that man kicked him in the face, breaking his nose.

Even with a broken nose, Jones does not appear ready to give in just yet. Despite the fact that police have told him to, in so many words, knock it the f*ck off, Phoenix Jones will continue to patrol the streets of Seattle putting a new spin on the old "kicking ass and taking names" motto.

So...who's got Phoenix Jones in their Celebrity Death Pool?

Extra Tidbit: Phoenix Jones says his favorite superhero is Green Lantern. Get on this Warner Bros!

Are you serious? This is pretty cool! I wondered when someone would really try this for real. I hope he takes some fighting lessons and wears some body armor so he will be around longer.

Way to go, Phoenix! Now, all he needs is a catchphrase and a calling-signal of some sort. I'm serious...it takes guts and major balls to do what Phoenix is doing. Here's a guy who hasn't forgotten his childhood fantasies, wants to help people, and isn't stupid enough to run around in his pajamas...he's actually taken the effort to protect himself. So call him whatever you want, I think it's about time the world had real superheroes.

Now...if only he had a jetpack.

HELL YES!!! I've been waiting my entire childhood for this, a real life superhero! Pheonix just needs a backer who can supply him with better stuff. If he had a bullet proof vest and a helmet made of kevlar(sp?) this wouldn't have happened. In a world with endless corruption and do nothing cops the world needs more people like Phoenix. Godspeed Mr. Jones You bring hope to us all!!!!

You know what...

I say more power to him. Literally if at all possible...which I doubt, but still. Look this dude and other guys feel like he needs to help others. Far be it for me to say stop. Here's hoping Phoenix Jones or one of the other real costumed street-fighters (there's nothing super about them, except for those costumes) gets a medal.

Awesome

Good for him. Nice to see somebody taking it upon themselves to help make their city a better place to live. I'm surprised it took this long for somebody to try being a real life superhero.

If this is the real-life kick-ass, then I wonder where's the real life Hit-Girl and Big Daddy?

let him keep going

I've always supported fun and interesting ways of thinning out the shallow end of the gene pool.

Hey, he's living his dream. He may regret it when he is wheel chair bound or worse but if he wants to do this...let him.

We don't need a masked viginante, we need a real armed vigilante like The Punisher or The Comedian from Watchmen.

So it's like Batman, Defendor, Kick Ass, and The Cape. Cool.

Regarding the extra tidbit, even though I am very excited for the movie I still wish Reynolds was cast as The Flash and Nathan Fillion was cast as The Green Lantern.

What about escalation?

We start carrying semi automatics, they buy automatics, we start wearing Kevlar, they buy armor piercing rounds, and *you're* wearing a mask and jumping off rooftops. take this guy: armed robbery, double homicide. Got a taste for the theatrical, like you. Leaves a calling card....

These Fake SuperHeroes are morons...

....any of these dudes out here who don't have weapons or, in the very least, mastery of some martial art form are asking to get killed and I hope it happens.

There are literally hundreds of ways you can go out and help people without being an attention seeking asshat.

Well, in Phoenix Jones' defense, if you read the news articles, he says him and the other costumed crime-fighters in the city have military and mixed martial arts backgrounds.
