Real-Life Vigilante Superhero, “Phoenix Jones” Stops Attempted Murder In Progress

Vigilante superheroes have long been a part of American culture because everyone knows that police don’t actually keep us safe, even if it is on a subliminal level. This is the main reason why people love stories about superheroes so much, because they show us real crime fighters that actually don’t disrupt the lives of innocent people, as police do on a daily basis.

As American streets become more heavily policed, and at the same time more dangerous, real superheroes are actually beginning to come out of the woodwork and make a difference. They aren’t writing parking or speeding tickets, and they aren’t hunting down non-violent drug users, but they are actually going after the violent criminals that police are too lazy and busy to deal with.

This week, one of the nation’s most active superheroes, Phoenix Jones was actually able to stop an attempted murder that was taking place on Capitol Hill in Seattle. According to KIRO, Phoenix was patrolling the streets near Capitol Hill when he witnessed three men attacking one victim, beating him viciously and pistol-whipping him. Phoenix immediately sprang into action, chasing the men down and knocking the weapon away from the armed man.

“I sprinted out as fast as I could and hit him with a right hand. The gun popped out, only the scary part was he didn’t get knocked out,” Phoenix said.

Phoenix then kept the suspects cornered until the police were able to arrive and arrest them.

Even the cops mentioned Phoenix in the local police blotter, saying that:

“The bloodied victim in the incident wouldn’t provide officers with much information about the fight, but a witness–Seattle’s (in)famous masked adventurer, Phoenix Jones–told police he had seen the suspects pistol-whip and kick the victim after knocking him to the ground.”

Phoenix Jones is the leader of the Rain City Superhero Movement, a Seattle-based citizen patrol group that describes itself as a crime prevention brigade. Initially wearing a ski mask to intervene in a public assault, he later developed a full costume and adopted “Phoenix Jones” as a pseudonym.

Phoenix says the best way to prevent getting mistaken for a criminal by the police is to wear a “supersuit,” although local police have expressed concern that the strange costumes may lead to emergency calls from citizens who mistake the “superheroes” for criminals.

Jones says that all members of the Rain City Superhero Movement have a military or mixed martial arts background.

Jones is also a mixed martial artist signed to World Series of Fighting, where he has fought at two catchweights, and the brother of UFC, Strikeforce and ONE Championship fighter Caros Fodor, according to his Wikipedia page.

  • As wonderful as it would be to have more people like him, Phoenix Jones is an overzealous disappointment to the Real-Life Superhero (RLSH) community. Not only has he been seen interfering with police business, his methods have lead to embarrassing incidents across Seattle, his most notorious one forcing him to reveal his secret identity in the face of prosecution. He has no professional training in forensics or law enforcement methods and even values physical strength over sound reasoning when he was recruiting for the Rain City Superhero Movement.

    His most egregious act was when he made an announcement on his fanpage, which is questionable in its own right, that he wanted donations for a “state-of-the-art battle suit” and requested $10,000. This angered the RLSH community, resulting on backlash from members like Urban Avenger, who called “immoral” due to it being funded through Phoenix Jones’ wife’s, Purple Reign’s, charity site.

    The RLSH are cool, and people standing up for their fellow citizenry is even cooler, but Phoenix Jones is doing it wrong. He is uneducated in the ways of actual, effective crime-fighting and an attention addict. Out of all the RLSH I have studied and interviews, none have been more egotistical as Mr. Benjamin Fodor.

    • Griffin does. Griffin needs a job. Griffin will you take on the responsibility? CAW CAW!!!!

    • At least he won’t kill kids with toy guns

He worked with Seattle PD to break up our demonstrations against police brutality… please check facts better before you talk about how awesome this dude is.
