About a week ago I told you about Phoenix Jones, a Seattle man who is trying to prevent crime by dressing up as a masked super hero. While his quest has indeed warded off a crime here and there, this week proved that he's not invincible.

Jones was trying to break up a fight between two men when one of them pulled a gun. Luckily the armed man didn't shoot Jones, but he instead kicked Jones in the face, breaking his nose. He isn't taking that as a sign to hang up his cape, however.

Jones remains undeterred, saying his injury is part of a superhero's job. "I endanger my life with a reason and purpose," he said. His adventures on the streets of Seattle have seen him stop a car theft and gain international fame as a costumed crusader.
