Real Life Crimefighter Appears to Take Inspiration from Kick-Ass

Kick-Ass is about a teenager who decides to become a superhero. So he makes a costume and goes out on the streets, looking for trouble. In Columbia, Tennessee, one college student took up the path and now calls himself The Viper:

In a town where they've engraved "justice" and "honor" on the public square, a new word, a new name is the talk of Columbia.

Bike shop owner A.C. Howell says "the Viper, I believe. Isn’t he the Masked Viper?"

Yes, the Viper. He's a man police found patrolling the public square with an arsenal of equipment, including plastic sticks and ninja throwing stars. His goal? Find crime and report it to police. Officers spotted him outside the wheel last week.

Video at the link. I recently saw Kick-Ass, and OMG it was awesome and terrible at the same time. I mean, I kind of have a problem with a movie that features a twelve-year old girl swearing so profusely. The character and social development of a child was warped in order to make a movie. But that serious misgiving aside, it was fantastic, especially the clever soundtracking (e.g. Elvis singing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic") and the amazing action scenes. Have you seen it? Did you like it?
