Real-Life Superhero Quits Crime-Fighting After Getting Beat Up
From worstpreviews, back in 2011, Roger Hayhurst made it on national news for dressing up as a superhero, named Knight Warrior, and patrollingof Manchester, England. He was even joined by his girlfriend, Rebecca, who named herself Knight Maiden.
At the time, Hayhurst vowed "to get crime offthe streets." But things have changed. Hayhurst, who's 20-years-old, tells The Telegraph that he quit crime-fighting after getting beat up.
"We were recognized when we were walking thorough Clifton and some lads started punching me," he said. "My face was all swollen. After that I still dress up and occasionally patrol, but I mainly dress up for charity appearances. Rebecca has got rid of her costume now."
