Real-Life WATCHMEN?

And now, for a story made just for Superhero Babylon...

"They don't exactly strike fear in the faces of criminals..."

There's so much to say on this, I don't know where to begin...part Spiderman, part Donnie Darko, part Big Bang Theory...a real-life Allegiance of Heroes? They're making Alan Moore look like Ken Burns; is Watchmen now a documentary? While they're not unprecedented, they're not the Guardian Angels, that's for sure. (The red berets are certainly less silly than the spawn masks...).

But, like the commentator says, at least they're doing something...(and c'mon, don't act like you've never thought about it...)

I have to say it seems like at least a few of them forgot a few of the things that are kind of important if you wear a costume to do something like this. First, if you're trying to protect your identity don't wear anything that could allow body tissue to flake off or leave your fingerprints exposed. Just saying. Secondly, spandex is only threatening if the body underneath it is threatening. Adam West in spandex: laughable. Brian Urlacher in spandex: scary.

Aww, c'mon...Adam West was pretty heroic...when I was 5...

Actually, all those tough guys from the olden days were somewhat pudgy, now that I think about it...;) There's actually an inverse proportional thing going on...in the olden days, tough guys were doughy on the outside, tough on the inside...now they're buff on the outside, doughy on the inside...
