Real-life super-heroics need to involve heroism in addition to dressing up. I’d say that this might qualify.

PHOENIX JONES & SPD PEPPER SPRAY MAN WHO PUNCHES WOMAN

(This happened Saturday morning, right down the street from site contributor Orion! He attracts trouble wherever he goes… who knows what shenanigans he’ll create at Comic-Con next month?)

Rex Velvet/Phoenix Jones war of words gets weirder

Well, well… it looks like self-described super-villain Rex Velvet might be more than he seems… or perhaps less? Last month, Phoenix Jones had this to say:

I looked him up. He’s actually just a wedding photographer who made a funny video. If he was a true supervillain I would be more interested because at least I would have something to do. Right now it’s like war of social media and I have better things to do with my time.

Shortly after posting Velvet’s three riotous videos yesterday, two strange messages were sent my way.

The first, from “Council of Ninja”:

Greetings. We are The Global Council of Ninja Pacific Northwest Council of Ninja branch, Media Representative of The Legion.

Rex Velvet, also known as the civilian Ryan Corly who is a Wedding Photograher is nothing more then a penny-ante wise cracking little boy with Peter pan envy. In short he is nothing more then a worm riding on the coat-tails of Phoenix Jones.

This is and here after a warning to all those who follow Ryan Corly. Your IP’s are being watched, just as we are watching Mr. Corly. Once we have enough evidence on those associated with him, prepare yourselves for the fact that you will be all facing jurisprudence from local law enforcement.

We. The Legion.

WHAAAT? First we have real-life superheroes in Seattle making arguably questionable decisions about protecting their city, then a villain who either has an army of cameras or a great phony story, now the NW has NINJAS? (Or do they prefer “ninja”? That always confuses me.)

It looks like these ninja/ninjas of “The Legion” (whatever that might be) seem to be on the side of the Rain City Superheroes, but what’s their story? And will there be any video evidence as entertaining as Jones or Velvet’s YouTube appearances?

But that’s not all – a response to the Council of Ninja appeared last night from “Slightlynorth“:

Dear Council of Ninja, (wait, are you a council or a legion? I’m confused.)

Greetings to you as well. Also: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. What kind of “jurisprudence from local law enforcement” will you make me face, exactly? Idle threats from an idle inelegance, eh?

Here, I’ll save you some time. My IP is currently: 10.6.70.184. Oh wait, that is an internal private IP address. Guess no jurisprudence for me. Sad day.

Me.

Move over, Phoenix Jones: Seattle now has a Real-Life Super-Villain: Rex Velvet

Rex Velvet symbolWhile Phoenix Jones and his Rain City Superhero Crime Fighting Movement have been in the news, courts, and comic-cons, it looks like one man has had enough: Rex Velvet, a.k.a. “The People’s Villain,” representing something called the Social Villains Alliance.

Some might find these videos disturbing… I find them hilarious:

So, is Rex Velvet who he says he is? On the one hand, the videos seem to be produced by something called Rocket Launch Productions. On the other… Velvet does drive a DeLorean.

And he did appear on Reddit the other day to answer questions from the public… Continue reading
