Where Was Shadow Hare When The Cat Was Stealing Lightbulbs?

Cincinnati has its own real life superhero. Or at the very least, it has its own real life guy who dresses up like a superhero and participates in on-line superhero message boards. He calls himself Shadow Hare, and he is going to stop all the crimes. (Via Vulture.)

Where was this guy back when we needed him?

In any case, you can laff at Shadow Hare all you want, but when his story becomes a half hour act on an episode of This American Life and then is sold to Hollywood for low-to-high-millions as a breakout vehicle for Christopher Mintz-Plasse, you won’t be laughing then. You will be like, “I am wearing my underwear on the outside of my pants because success comes to the bold!”
