Christian Tyler Hardee is “trying to do what’s right, in tights” as he patrols his town of Columbia, Tennessee.  Dressed as The Viper and carrying throwing stars and plastic sticks, the 20-year-old crime fighter wanna be made one big mistake – letting the media know his real name.

  1. Surely the first rule of superheroing is “it only works in comic books, not reality,” – and thanks for setting back the “comic books aren’t just for kids” movement about 30 years!

  2. I applaud a person for believing in making the world better and doing his part. Sadly, it seems to have only been met with derision from the complacent citizens but perhaps he will inspire others.

  3. i bet this guy was fully aroused every time he went on “patrol”.

    and Navarre, throwing stars aren’t a key component in making the world a better place. Organize a neighborhood watch.

  4. No, not the throwing stars, just the intent. I’m not suggesting everyone should dress up in costume.

    But maybe someone will talk to him about it, he’ll express why he is so motivated, and it will motivate them as well. Then they can find the better common ground with the aforementioned neighborhood watch.

    But wanting to be an active part of a better world isn’t to be ridiculed, even if his methods are unorthodox. I give him points for at least caring.
