Have you ever wondered if Superheroes actually exist?  Is there a Spider-Man actually swinging through the streets of Manhattan?  The answer is to the latter is no, but there is the likes of Mr. Xtreme, Nyx and Thanatos just to name a few.

Tonight on HBO a documentary from Filmmaker Michael Barnett titled “Superheroes” will premiere at 9pm EST.  “Superheroes” takes a deeper look into the world of these real life superheroes.  The main focus is put on Mr. Xtreme who is based out of San Diego.  I thought San Diego was heaven on Earth.  Who knew they needed a hero.

Mr. Xtreme has been a volunteer crime fighter for over 10 years now.  He cites his background of having been a victim of a violent crime and a rough childhood as his inspiration of being a beacon of hope for others.  Needless to say his costume could use a little help as you can see:


The existence of these real life superheroes is news to me, but I personally can’t wait to see what Mr. Barnett has in store for us tonight. If you want more information you can visit http://www.reallifesuperheroes.com/for all the details on these intriguing individuals.
