8 Real-Life Superheroes In the movies , superheroes protect the public from evil . But did you know that there are some people who actually think they themselves are real-life superheroes ? Believe it or not , these people wear masks and capes * , use strange names and fight real crime . They think they have superpowers even though they are just ordinary people . Here are some of their stories . Chris Guardian ( not his real name ) says that he has always wanted to make the world a better place . He thinks that he is a superhero , so he patrols * the streets of New York City . One night he had the chance to be a hero . He caught a man robbing a store and held him until customers called the police . Citizen Prime has patroled the streets of Phoenix , Arizona , for over a year . In real life , Citizen Prime is a 40-year-old married man . At night , he walks up and down the streets once or twice a week wearing a black , blue and yellow costume . He wants people to feel safe when they go out at night . He says that citizens * should not be afraid to walk along the streets of their own town . Mr . Silent works during the day , so he goes out on the streets of Indianapolis , Indiana , only one night a week . He looks for people in danger so that he can save them . “ I see what , in my opinion , needs changing in society and I work toward that goal , ” he says . Every day more and more people are trying to be superheroes and they attract a lot of attention . How do the police feel about these people ? They are not happy . They claim that real-life superheroes are trying to do the work of the police . But they are not trained and , the police say , “ risk hurting themselves and others” .
