#9 Citizen Prime

Citizen Prime (RealLifeSuperheroes.org)
Location: Arizona
Purpose: To educate children and the public at large on safety and preparedness
True Identity: Jim, an executive at an unnamed financial institution
Means of Transport: Xterra
Cost of Costume: $4,000

Not all caped crusaders are losers with nothing better to do, and Citizen Prime is proof.

A financial executive by day, Citizen Prime donns his $4,000 costume, which includes custom-made breast plate armor, and patrols the streets. Citizen Prime separates himself from other neighborhood watch style "superheroes" by distributing literature on how to help in the community and making appearances to talk to children about drugs and crime.

While Citizen Prime has said he respects the work of other superheroes, like the Black Monday Society in Salt Lake City, he takes a different approach by focusing on community involvement. He says the most useful tool at his disposal is a keen sense of humor for diffusing awkward situations.
