Meet Cincinnati's "Super" Heroes

With only his bare hands, some pepper spray, and a poorly fitting luchadores mask, Shadow Hare, a 21 year old man from Milford, Ohio, leads a group he calls the Allegiance of Heroes. For the past 4 years, he's patrolled the streets of Cincinatti, fighting crime.

My favorite quote from Shadow Hare:

He surely won't recognize us...because he's blind. But, I am sure he will recognize the taste of a good meal.

Shadow Hare, and his Allegiance of Heroes, is not the only costumed crime fighter out there, however. You can find many more in the World Superhero Registry.

Curious about the secret identity of the enigmatic Mr. Focus? I'll never tell.

>This the first time I've seen anything about it? It was funny but I do like the idea behind it. There are not enough people who would help someone else in a serious situation.

May 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Clos

>Wow... if the kid is actually 21, why not just join the police force?

That's typically how we do things in the real world. Much more effective than citizen's arrests, which could potentially get someone into a nice bit of legal trouble if even the slightest detail goes awry. It's good to want to help, but it needs to be done appropriately, or else the helpers are going to end up getting burned.

A little silly, but hey, why not, if it keeps the streets safer?

June 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRob

I hope he's wearing a kevlar vest under that leotard. I'm guessing being bullet-proof isn't one of his super powers. Good luck in the streets of Cinci, super retard.

The 2nd response suggested Shadow Hare join the police force. When was the last time you saw a police officer on foot patrol in the streets? There are not enough police officers around to patrol the streets, and that is because cities can't afford the cost of that many police officers, and that is because people don't want to pay more taxes to pay for a larger police force, and that allows criminals to roam the streets because they know there are not enough police officers on the force to assign officers to foot patrol. So------joining the police force would take him off the streets making the criminals feel safer to commit crimes. Got it?

Re: 2nd Poster

I'm not sure where your "real world" is but I'd like to visit it sometime. In the real world *I* live in, the police force is largely inefficient and corrupt and does little to nothing to actually keep citizens safe because it's busy arresting people with small amounts of marijuana and making money on traffic stops. Joining the police would significantly hamper this man's efforts to control street crime.
