Caped crusaders act as superheroes for homeless

A couple of people did not take Labor Day off: a caped crusader and his green-armoured pal.

They are two middle-aged men from Cherry City, Oregon, dressed in superhero outfits.

But despite their silly getups, their mission is serious.

The heroes are known as Hazmat and The REV.

The two have been playing superheroes to Rose City’s homeless population for about a year.

The citizen crusaders do their rounds a couple of times a month, arming themselves with sandwiches and socks to give to those in need.

They work it in between jobs in security and construction and taking care of their own families. Most of the items they distribute are paid for out of pocket.
