Ever wonder why crazy people can't put on costumes and go out and fight crime?
You know...like Batman.
It seems like everyone you hear about that dresses up as a comic book character picks a super villain.
Case in point:
Gunman Dressed As The Joker Shot By Police
A soldier dressed and wearing face-paint like Batman villain The Joker was shot and killed by police in the Shenandoah National Park after he pointed a loaded shotgun at them after a chase, an FBI affidavit says.
Army Spc. Christopher Lanum, a suspect in the stabbing of a fellow soldier at Fort Eustis, was killed hours after the attack when officers attempted to stop the minivan he was driving, according to court documents filed Wednesday that first disclosed the weekend shooting.

But on a better note, we may have a real life "Spider-Man":
Paraplegic Man Suffers Spider Bite, Walks Again
He has been confined to a wheelchair for 20 years. Now a paraplegic man is walking again, and his doctors call it a miracle. CBS13 went to Manteca to find out how a spider bite helped get him back on his feet.
But even this story doesnt have a happy ending.....
The story of a paraplegic who man is walking for the first time in 20 years, has taken a new twist.
David Blancarte, the Modesto man possibly being considered as a medical marvel after he was able to walk following a spider bite, is in jail.
To quote Bonnie Tyler:
"Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream
of what I need..."
