    I'm watching this documentary on HBO about Superheroes. I'm talking about real life superheroes. These guys have their own character and costume and go out to fight crime in their city.

    I understand that they want to help and all but these people are a little nuts.

    The only one's I like so far are this group called the "New York Initiative" because they look badass.. lol.

    I watched most of it the other night. To be honest I thought these guys were completely nuts but when they showed how they help out the homeless and proactively patrol at night I was impressed. Those guys deserve some props.

    The dude drinking the beers was HILARIOUS! That dude in the park in New York needed guns and he would be the Punisher.

    LOL. They were like "No one is willing to do the work we do" Me and my wife laughed and were like... ummmm HOMELESS SHELTERS!

    Would have been a much cooler documentary if the dude who lived in his van got beat up. Or groped by the campus groper guy!

    You wanna help?

    Go to a soup kitchen. Put on a uniform. Become an EMT. Become a counselor. Donate. Do charity events.

    Put on a costume and stalk around looking for trouble?

    Yeah.

    I am waiting for this, one day: "Would-be 'superhero' gunned down attempting to foil robbery. Film at 11."

    I wanted to seethe some fights. All they did was walk around at night talking to the homeless.
    I think some of these guys would get their ass kicked pretty bad in a real fight. Their was this dude who says he knows martial arts and looked in pretty good shape. Him and the New York Initiative could probably hold their own in a fight.
