Cincinnati crime-fighter becomes local attraction
Watch the streets of Cincinnati carefully: you may see a man clad in a mask and cape scouring the city in search of evil deeds and damsels in distress. Shadowhare, who (obviously) prefers to conceal his true identity has volunteered his services to the city's citizens and civil servants ... free of charge.
This is bigger than voting and jury duty combined.
This superhero is 21 years old – and clearly mature beyond his years. After all, who would take on such a daunting task? He leads a group called the "Allegiance of Heroes," which includes Aclyptico in Pennsylvania, Wall Creeper in Colorado and Master Legend in Florida. "I've even teamed up with Mr. Extreme in California – San Diego – and we were trying to track down a rapist," he says.
Here's the shock: sometimes, Shadowhare and his fellow crime-fighters aren't taken seriously by the folks in uniform. Imagine that! The Allegiance of Heroes, however, proceeds undeterred.
So, if a trip to Cincinnati is in your future, book your flights knowing that you have nothing to fear.
