"Master Blaster: a six-foot-long silver cannon fueled by cans of Right Guard that can shoot "a variety of projectiles," including stun pellets made from plastic Easter eggs filled with cayenne pepper and rock salt."

I just read this and I have a few differing opinions on this.
First I totally agree with Hakai on the cannon that is hilarious!
Second I do have to say that this Superhero business can be a very dangerous thing without the proper training. I have been in the military and even with the best equipment and body armor it was still a scary thing and I was highly trained for combat. These people are in tights (so to speak) and have Rocksalt Cannons with Cayenne in it. Shoot that at someone who has a pistol and see what happens.
Don't get me wrong I salute their bravery but untrained, under equipped, and unorganized.....it can lead to someone getting hurt very badly or even killed.
Just to put it into perspective not long ago we had a link to a video posted about a friend pulling another out of a car that was on fire. This friend saved the other friends life and that friend got sued for performing a "Good Deed" because of a "Complication" during the extraction leaving the person paralized. That was a friend what do you think would happen to a tight wearing self proclaimed superhero?
Honestly I understand a persons want to protect the things they Love and Care for and even extend that to the people around them, but leave professional crime fighting to the ones who are trained for it. If you want to help communicate with the local law enforcement. If you are just totally bent on crimefighting then become a professional. Make it your new career go to school get trained for the job, and when you graduate and get on the streets hope that you will be able to make it home in one piece when your shift is over.

How did I not see this before
I am entertained
Hero's they might be.
But none of them qualify for the title 'super'.
Mundaneheros, normalheros, or just plain Heros might be more appropriate.
