Welcome to www.RLSH-MANUAL.com!

the unofficial, unauthorized online reference manual for the real life super hero community

" There is no more honored sterward than he who compassionately serves; not out of subjugation, but moral obligation."


in light of certain events, the amount of traffic i've gotten through my site (www.rlsh-manual.com) has spiked.

but thats not what i wanted to publish this note for. instead, i want you to read what strangers across the world have been saying about real life super heroes. may it inspire you, like it did for me.

Heard about your group on the news from a Houston based web-board! You guys are awesome! You have my full support down in Houston. There needs to be more people like you in this world.

Thank you

I would just for 1. like to thank you (and yours) for what you do, both stateside and deployed. 2. Thank you for this invaluable website with a very good collection of information that can help everyone from good folks like yourself to someone who just wants to grow in knowledge.

I firmly believe that we cannot lie to ourselves and think we are safe. Because even the most careful of us are in danger. I believe every citizen should consider looking into at least introductory self-defense instruction as yes, officers of the law are great, but, as you are aware, quite often the difference of life and death is mere seconds versus waiting for help to arrive.

anyway, just wanted to say thanks, and send an encouraging note from a fellow person who thinks similarly!

 Wow...oh wow.. You guys ROCK! I am impressed. I am against political injustice. I look at the big picture and I have played my part with direct action.  Taking care to never harm the individual person with my actions. But that was years ago and I don't take those risks anymore...cynicism burned its way into me... But I tried ...my way.. and now you and yours try.. and I salute you. I am glad I was not alone in my belief that one person can change the world for the better if they just freaking try. Rock on man... rock on!

First of all, thank you for your military service. Thank you for being a hero all around. It is about time people stood up and did what it right. I am keeping you all in my prayers. I am a mother of 2 veterans, one of which is a wounded warrior from OIF. I am a former nurse, now disabled at the hands of an irate patient. However, I believe in standing up for what is right and have spoken up for those whom I have seen being mistreated. God Bless You! Just wanted to let you know I think what you are doing is great!

 Hello.  I've long been interested in Reals, and I found your site to be the best I've encountered yet.  So, I put a link to it on my website in the hope that I can channel you some more readers.  I am the cartoonist who draws and co-writes Johnny Saturn at http://johnnysaturn.com/, and several Reals in the past have given it favorable reviews.  I’m not asking for anything back from you, like a link or anything, because this was a gift freely given.  I have really good traffic, and I'm glad to help where I can. 


 Tuesday, January 4, 2011 7:26 PM

 Myself and 4 other of my friends have been thinking of doing exactly what you are doing. We would also want to make sure we would have GPS trackers, radio's as well as wireless video cameras for legal protection. Some of us have Costumes which it not as important, but we would like to know where the best place would be for armor. Such as Bullet proof vests and stab plates. And anything else you might recommend.

 Thank you for your time and protection.

 Hi there I wish to leave my name anonymous at this moment in time but for the sake of this conversation I will use the name chaos. First thing first I have been going through this website with a fine tooth comb and think it’s amazing you are all guys that make a difference to your community and its rare to see I have often thought about participating but with no guidance I have been reluctant I am well aware its more than a game off dress up and I have various skills and abilities. As u can most likely gather from my address I’m from the UK. I was wandering if u have a UK sanction or requirements to join for guidance sake if you require anymore information from me just ask look forward to any reply


Monday, December 13, 2010 12:18 PM

I recently came across your website and just want to say how impressed I am. This is unbelievable that you guys are willing to risk it all and protect the unwary public. Any affiliates in New Mexico?? We need some help over here!


Thursday, December 9, 2010 1:46 PM

 I am interested in how I can get started setting up a group in my hometown, and any advice.  THANKS.

 RLSH Brazilian who wants to be your friend. Please read!

 Good morning, Knight Owl.

My name is Phantom and Platypus am Brazilian, I live in Brazil. The project RLSH awakened in me the will to fight crime to help the homeless who are in my neighborhood. I'm patrolling the streets of where to live alone for now and know I'm making a difference with my actions. I know I'm helping these people to have hope and believe that they are not alone. For now I'm Entrages supplies, clothing and blankets for them and I like watching my neighborhood at night. I am sending you this email because I want to be your friend and share with you what I experience.

 I also, that if you could give me advice on how I can act, assist me in my evolution as RLSH. The Brazilians do not have the same courage and good heart to be a super hero, like you are having. Actually this project and you, all you have done with that awaken something in me that he was asleep, something I have not believed. Immense strength to help those in need.

 Today I can be sure that I was born to it, this is my life and I can change the course of things. Well, here I am hoping that you read my email, please reply to me and be my friend. I want to join you.

 Grateful now, Phantom Platypus.

 By the way, I just want to say that I LOVE what you all are doing.  Love, love, love.  I just found out about you guys last night and I have been ridiculously love-stricken/happy ever since.

 Way to go, guys!!!

 Very interesting site and group.  Keep fighting the good fight.


Tuesday, November 23, 2010 7:00 PM

 I have a few questions for you. Please respond when possible. Thank you for your hard work and inspiring deeds.

To start, thank you for your response. I appreciate it very much. I feel I should let you know that I am not affiliated with any agency of news nor am I with any government division, and that the name I have given you is not real. It is a pseudonym I use in order to distance my personal identity from the online world. With that having been said, I apologize for any perceived deception.

 When I was a child, Superhero's were the stuff of comic books and television. Seeing such fantastic powers like flight and force beams ignited my imagination. However the truth still remained they were just fantasies. No one could actually fly without mechanical assistance, and the only power gaze I'd ever seen for real was the one my mother gave me when I was in trouble. Then I grew up and in high school I found myself thinking of Superhero's on a more realistic level. I believed that a person could place on a mask and act in support for the betterment of their community. But still, things stood in the way. It wasn't until recently that I'd heard of actual masked men and women doing things no ordinary person would do (as anyone can, but most are afraid to.) I imagined they were a flash in the pan, though, with no continual activity in the future. I was still captivated by it. However, I then came across RLSH. I am now stunned and amazed. To see that there are still people willing to go the distance and show that truth, nobility, and kindness still exists without the need of recognition thrills me. But I still find myself crossed. This is why I have contacted you. I don't know if you are the one I should direct this to, but you are someone I believe who can help me. I have many questions, but I will address the most urgent now. Hopefully time in contact with you will answer the reset.

 My first question deals with the law and the rules they have in place. At what point is a masked superhero considered a "vigilante?" I understand the difference between doing good for your community verses taking the law into your own hands, but where is the line drawn? I don't believe in the use of firearms as a Superhero, but are you considered a vigilantly for the use of pepper spray should you need to? Are defensive weapons a no-no? Or is the deciding factor boiled down to intent? If one goes to seek criminal activity, and stop it alone while wearing a mask and wielding weapons, do you fit the description of a vigilante? As an amendment to this, sometimes you come across a law that inhibits the use of anonymity in a Super-heroic way. In my local area, for instance, a man dressed as Batman for fun and would go clubbing. He was arrested because of a law that states that you are not allowed to wear a mask in public without authorization (that of course being with the exception of the Halloween holiday.) I have found that there are several states with this law on the books. Now this man was doing it in jest with no reason of importance to do so. However the same law would apply to anyone who chooses to don a mask to help his or her community. This is only an example, but still one that represents the idea of a Superhero working inside the law.

 --I apologize as that was two questions in one.

 My next interest in RLSH As a whole. How exactly does a system of Superhero's stay connected? I've researched many areas that Superhero's exist, as well as Superhero groups that exist. Is there any system of overall communication and information? Or is RLSH more or a concept than an actual organized group?

 --That's a pretty strait forward interest.

 These are my main inquisitions. I believe in RLSH. Be it a concept or a way of life, I believe we need it. I find the world to be getting darker each day. Although our true heroes who fight for our basic freedom's, defend our local neighborhoods, and save lives day in and out are constantly hard at work, I believe it to be everybody's responsibility to do what they can to help one another. It's a sad reality, but when a woman being attacked can get more help by yelling "fire" rather than "rape," it's a sign that something is horribly wrong. To be more specific, I once researched a social condition by which one person witnessing a crime will feel 100% responsibility to act against it. But one hundred people witnessing the same crime will feel only 1% responsibility as they all think the same thing: "Someone else here will handle this." This is why I believe.

 I hope to keep in contact with you. I will do my part as much as I can. Thank you.

 How do i get in touch with a serious rlsh team? I have been doing this on teh streets for a while nowgoing from town to town but i want to be a part of somthing more.


Saturday, November 20, 2010 2:31 PM

 You are brilliantly organized.  I just read your human trafficking page and I must say...wow.  Most people say enough to get people upset about the issue.  You actually give information on what to do about it.  It's important to touch hearts, good sir, but equally important to touch minds.  Thank you for that.  Your work would mean much less without this.  It's a shame your hands are tied by so much red tape.  I think men like you should replace a good portion of the police.

 Hi. My name is Devin.  I am a Criminal Justice student in TN. I have started an organization with some of my fellow Criminal Justice Students called 'The Force.' We try to keep an eye on our college's campus and surrounding community.  What do we need to do to become recognized by the RLSH community?


Saturday, November 20, 2010 12:23 AM

 I just want to say I really admire what you all are doing. I would like to offer some assistance and support if I may.  I am assuming that some or most of the members in the group have some self defense/martial arts/combat training.  I teach martial arts/self defense as well and would love to share some with the group located here in Seattle if there is an interest- for no fee! We seem to have a lot in common.  Look forward to hearing from ya. STAY SAFE OUT THERE!!!!!!!!

 I have suggested this before. I have excessive knowledge in design and building tools and items. You can see some more artistic endeavors at www.borgsteamfactory.com

 I have a number of non lethal weapon ideas such as palm mount temporary blinding devices, high voltage punch power increasers,(best thing I have been able to come up with because they increase the damage done when you punch someone by also applying an electric shock from the knuckles and the palms of the hands (for grappling)

and I have a pretty good source for materials used to make bullet proof armor like spectra and Kevlar. I have a contact too that I can reconnect with to get various thicknesses of lexan that is cheap due to it being off cuts from the aerospace industry.

 If you think anyone would be interested in getting geared up have them contact me on the above web site’s contact page (www.borgsteamfactory.com/contact.html ) or with the email address I included.

 Afghanistan combat veteran, combat medic and scout for MOS. Have most equipment including an extra vest (that one needs SAPI plates still) if anyone needs. I would like to see what you are up to and meet if I am needed. Thanks,

 Looking forward to joining your world to aid the community.

Maybe you can give me the tips I need and the proper contacts here in Nevada for me to join the Superhero World.

 I just recently ran across this website and had no idea there were so many like me out there.I am very happy to see other people caring for their fellow earthians as much as i do.i want in.ive been doing this on my own for 7 yrs now and it would be great to be a part of a community devoted to the same thing i do.


Thursday, April 16, 2009 8:17 PM

 This is a very awesome site!  Thanks much for posting so much information and links.  Everything in here is something I'd like to have in classes for the school.  I'd also like strategy and tactics, awareness training, fitness training, and so much more.  Have you ever heard of Milton H. Erickson?  He was one of the revolutionary people involved in Hypnotherapy and Family Therapy.  More importantly, he had great ideas and instincts for how to break people of bad habits and limiting ideas of their own capabilities.  Check him out on Wikipedia.

 God bless you (and your compadres), K.O. Please get back to the States stronger than ever. Thank you for the online Manual. You have inspired me to a new sense of duty.

 Greetings heroes...

1st of all I’d like to congratulate you having the courage and patience to do some good work on the cities! I’m glad that there are people like you out there fighting crime and protecting. I live in Greece and I got my team also..

 Keep doing that job and prevail justice on the road... maybe we meet someday...it could be fun!
