Superheroes the movie on the Road

Launch of new website, SaveMeHeroMan.com, to ease burden on law enforcement by fighting crime.
Eventually, the Hollywood movie industry will run out of comic book superheroes to salute. When they want the real deal, they need not look past local hero John Shear. Forget the fact that he’s 90 years old. Or 5’ 2” and 110 pounds. At Santa Anita Park, John Shear is megaman and everybody here adores him.
Phoenix Jones to Real Life Superheroes: “Sure other superheroes don’t like me,” he says. “Why? Because they suck at their jobs. Tonight we literally didn’t stop any crime. But we did definitely talk to some drug dealers, we picked up a girl who fell and hit her face on the ground, and we talked to a bunch of different people in Seattle who may now report crime because they talked to us. That’s still 100 times better than every other superhero.”
Real life super heroes are popping up everywhere. It’s a concept that started nearly two years ago and has been growing quickly, thanks in part to Hollywood photographer Peter Tangen. By Valley Wire Magazine
