I don’t know which surprises me less: that a geek put on a real cosplay show and fancies himself a superhero; or that there’s a league of them, and they haven’t pulled their homepage out of 1995.
Looks like he’s registered on the World Superhero Registry, too.
He calls himself the Watchman. He won’t give his real name.
His identity is obscured by a bright red mask that covers half his goateed face. He wears black boots, black pants, black leather gloves and a black trench coat, but there’s a large yellow circle on the chest of his black hooded sweatshirt, with a big W.
“I’m what people refer to as a real-life superhero,” he says.
By night, on weekends, he patrols Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood, looking for injustice and evildoers. By day? That’s a mystery.
