Real Life "Heroes"

While Hiro and company have been on hiatus, I happened to read a great article in a recent issue of Rolling Stone magazine by "normal" (and I use that term loosely) folk who have been inspired by comic book superheroes. Unlike Tim Kring, who channeled his comic book fetish into a hit NBC show, these people actually pull on a pair of tights and go out and fight crime.

Sounds like the plot of a Ben Stiller movie, right?

It is pretty comical, but just when you're about to write the assorted characters off as crazy or weirdos playing dress-up, the article manages to showcase the generosity, philanthropy and just plain good-heartedness of the "superheroes."
