Evil villains looking to prey on the citizens of Lynnwood, Washington, beware: Phoenix Jones is watching.
A local man said he came within seconds of having his car broken into, and perhaps stolen, until a real-life “superhero” came to his aid, wearing tights, a mask and a skin-tight super suit. Dan’s rescuer was Phoenix Jones, a.k.a. Phoenix Jones the Guardian of Seattle, a “Real Life Superhero” and leader of the Rain City Superhero Movement. Almost every night, the 22-year-old Jones, who keeps his real identity a secret, enters a secret compartment in the back of a Lynnwood comic book store and emerges, in uniform, to patrol the streets. His suit includes a bullet-proof vest and “stab plates,” and he carries a taser nightstick, mace and tear gas.
