Man, wife dress as superheroes to patrol Atlanta


The Associated Press

ATLANTA — A masked man and his wife who dress in superhero costumes say they're trying to fight crime by patrolling the streets of an Atlanta neighborhood.

The man, who calls himself the Crimson Fist, says he feels like a superhero when he dons his mask and patrols the streets with his wife, Meta Data.

He tells WAGA-TV that he prepares himself for the dangers of the streets, carries handcuffs and wears a "stun device" that wraps around his knuckles. He checks for car break-ins, cleans up litter and alerts police to suspicious activity in the Castleberry Hill neighborhood just south of downtown Atlanta.

Video aired by WAGA (http://bit.ly/12eU6OH ) shows him and his wife on their rounds, checking cars and visiting with residents.
