Wise Guy, I still see the Guardian Angels patrolling around Chicago late at night.  Usually on the Subways. I don't see them consistently, but I see them nonetheless.  Not sure what their MO is these days, but if you need them...

Wiseguy. I dont commute into Manhattan anymore but I used to see them on the A and the C quite a bit... Ever since they lost their HQ in Times Square they are less visible i guess... HQ in Times Square?! How were they left off this list LOL? I dont listen to Sliwa anymore he was funny when he was tempered by Kubi (and vise versa)... Now I listen to audiobooks and podcasts.

I know about these so-called "superheroes". They're not actual superheroes, but people who perform stunts or donate to charitable organizations. But to actually go out and fight crime? No. Looking out for unsuspecting women in bars is hardly fighting crime. Would anybody ever try to be a real superhero going after real villains like Batman or Green Arrow do? Probably not, because if you did you'd not only have pissed off thugs and mafia people trying to kill you but the police would be setting up sting operations to catch you and put you in jail.  You'd have to have true superpowers in order to be a true superhero in this world.

monkeyfoot: True, The Punisher is as close to a real superhero as you might find here... if they were fighting injustice. And about your question regarding fighting bad guys: You'd have to have extreme patience when on street patrols in order to find a crime in action. The police very rarely ever find them happening in progress. If you are in any big city, this might not be too much of a problem since crime is heavier in cities, particularly New York, and you get to look where most cops won't. Aside from Spider-Man's superpowers, you'd probably have to do what he does in his spare time and listen to police scanners and intervene with criminals on the run. But then you'd probably be tasked with actually getting there on time and in one piece (if you used a vehicle like Batman does) considering the thick traffic in cities would be very hard to navigate and leave you with numerous traffic violations from police chasing you. Too many things can get in your way just to fight crime. However, you could always do like The Punisher does and invade the homes and favorite clubs of mafia crime bosses and deal with them there and then. :P Overall, as I said before, you'd need true superpowers in order to be a true - and functioning - superhero.

 Minutemen patrolling our southern borders.  Heroes?  Seriously, Wiseguy?

 I saw some other wannabe costumed superheroes on Yahoo yesterday as well. I remember when I used to dress up as superheroes..........when i was in elementary school.  But I have to admit, The French Spider-man kicks Ass! Those climbs must be epic for him. I wonder if he just takes the elevators down tho.

Angle Grinder Man needs to be pulled off of this list. People park illegally, they get ticketed and then booted. Cutting the boots off is against the law, and is rewarding others who are breaking the law.

You might not LIKE the law, but it's still THE LAW. He shouldn't be praised, he should be slapped with every dollar (or pound, as the case may be) that he "spared" those who were booted. He ain't no Robin Hood.

You should dump #4 or #5 to make a space for Super Dave.
