Sometimes, being the change implies getting out of your comfort zone, getting out there and doing what needs to be done. And, however cute and funny the people in the story below are, you have to admit: they are doing what they can to help. Even if they kind of look funny doing it.
Perhaps, instead of laughing at them, we should consider what kind of world we would live in if everyone decided to dedicate their lives to helping others.

Evildoers beware! A team of self-styled crime-fighters called the “Allegiance of Heroes” has taken to patrolling the mean streets of Cincinnati, righting wrongs and defending the defenseless. The superheroes — who carry handcuffs, pepperspray and stun guns, but no batarangs — are part of a global network of masked avengers who organize and team-up through the online World Superhero Registry.
This awesome video from Cincinatti’s WLWT focuses on 21-year-old Shadow Hare, the leader of the Allegiance. Shadow Hare has joined with superheroes in other states to fight crime. ”I’ve even teamed up with Mr. Extreme in California — San Diego — and we were trying to track down a rapist,” he told the station. As io9 notes, what could possibly go wrong?
