Metkere.com shares [1] [ru] a video-address of a real life super hero calling himself “The Avenger.” (see his Vkontakte fan group [2] [ru]) The avenger, a man in a black costume with a green letter “M” (apparently M for Mstitel’, the ‘avenger’ in Russian) on it and a black mask, says he is patrolling the streets of industrial city of Chelyabinsk [3] and prevents petty crimes against its citizens. Green Hornet or Kick-Ass have nothing to do with it, no.
