Columbia, Tennessee now has a real-life costumed hero to call their own. A 20-year old aspiring comic book writer calling himself Viper was stopped by police last Wednesday for "wearing a mask in public," which is illegal in the city. According to the local paper, he told the officers he was looking for "crime to report." He apparently also planned to fight the crime (or fixing something) as he was sporting a utility belt containing a screwdriver, wrench, and a cell phone.
