REAL LIFE SUPER HEROES
by Nadia Fezzani
September 2017

Super heroes are globally big business. They continue to captivate movie-goers and television-viewers as more and more comic-based entertainment is produced every year. The fantasy of it all is fun and the thought that just maybe there’s somebody out there to swoop in and save you when everything goes south would be comforting were it not pure fiction – or so we thought.

In her revealing new book, REAL LIFE SUPER HEROES, author and investigative journalist Nadia Fezzani shines a spotlight on the people who come home from work, change into their uniforms (or costumes), and patrol the streets looking for crime to fight and victims in distress.

Across North America alone, there are more than 600 costumed heroes who have taken it upon themselves to fight the bad guys, save the good guys, and dole out vigilante justice where it is needed. Fezzani has visited them, patrolled with them, and faced death with them in order to bring this in-depth look at the lives and origins of these so-called real life super heroes. Inside readers will find:

  • The personal stories of super heroes such as Phoenix Jones, Life, Dark Guardian, Mr. Xtreme, and Red Light among others
  • Who the Real Life Super Villains are and what they mean to the community – the answer is surprising
  • The world of online super heroes and their activities designed to make the world a safer place
  • An inside look at the different protectorates and leagues around the country

Fezzani’s first book Through the Eyes of Serial Killers found her interviewing dark, twisted people for four years. The experience gave her insight and a keen eye for differentiating facts from sensationalism when it comes to interviewing unconventional subjects. In REAL LIFE SUPER HEROES readers will discover who these people really are. Are they ordinary, mild-mannered citizens, or are they larger-than-life characters, determined to fight crime, risking life and limb to defend victims of violence and injustice? And why do some choose to reveal their true identities, while others prefer to remain anonymous? The answers are all found between the pages of this fascinating new book.
