I'm still at a loss for words regarding the tragic events that occurred in Aurora Colo. - Its senseless and hard to grasp that magnitude of evil where 12 die, 59 wounded in an unprovoked theater massacre.

While I don't know what to say about the matter, apparently Georgia's own superhero, Captain Black does. Captain Black is a member of the Real Life Superhero (RLSH) community or "Reals" as they're often referred - often costumed civilians noted for doing neighborhood watches or community service work in the spirit of the comic book ethos that inspired them. "Cap" as he's known in his city of operations Savannah posted a rally cry for heroes to rise up and answer to call.

Members of what media calls ” the real life superhero ( RLSH ) ” now have a golden opportunity to put aside petty squabbles in the face of a masked assault embodying the worst villainy of fact and fiction. Their use of superhero imagery can assume new seriousness in wake of this tragedy.
