Best crime-fighting superhero: Crimson Fist

Staff Pick

It takes more than police officers to fight crime. That's where the Crimson Fist enters the picture. For the last seven years, the crimson-masked crusader dressed in spandex, cargo pants, and combat boots has patrolled and picked up litter in Castleberry Hill. Armed with a medical kit, plastic ties, and a device that sends electric shocks through his gloves, the Decatur native (who's occasionally joined by his wife, "Metadata") keeps watch over the historic neighborhood. Over the years, he's developed a fan base and even attracted a documentary crew. In addition to his crime-fighting work, he also works to gather clothing for the homeless and has even helped find tools for an English Avenue community garden. The enigmatic superhero has managed to keep his identity private - he says his parents don't know about his extracurricular activities - not to mention stay alive. Unlike the typical vigilante, he's quick to call police for backup.
