Wait...Superheroes Are Real?!

Superheroes are real...if you live in Seattle. Which I don't! Disappointment!
Apparently a group calling themselves the Rain City Superhero Movement are out on the streets, in costume, fighting crime. They don't (thankfully) dress up like classic superheroes but have their own costumes which mostly just consist of skin tight black clothes and masks. They carry tasers, pepper spray and nightsticks but no other weapons.
I can't quite decide whether this is cool or not, I mean, on the one hand you've got these hero-fanatics zooming around Seattle trying to fight crime and looking damn cool, but on the other hand you've got these weird, masked people roaming around actually looking for trouble when they carry little protection.
Apparently one of the heroes was recently mistaken for a masked robber! The police are telling them to stop as someone could get hurt. True enough, but I reckon the fuzz are just jealous because they don't get to wear cool clothes and have a secret identity!
For now, I'm in support. Especially due to the fact there seems to be women in the group as well as guys trying to show off. The names of the heroes that are known about so far are Thorn, Buster Doe, Green Reaper, Gemini, No Name, Catastrophe, Thunder 88, Penelope and Phoenix Jones, the Guardian of Seattle.
No Name? Really? Come on man, get your dictionary out!
Here's a picture of one of the heroes; he looks pretty well qualified to me!
