Why do 'amateur superheroes' think they can fight crime?

The New York Post has a nifty feature about average people who like to dress up like superheroes and "fight crime" in real life. (We already have people who dress up in costumes and fight crime. We call them "police.") I keep waiting for the article about them getting pummeled by a drug dealer, but it hasn't happened yet. One of the Post's subjects is a former Kansas girl:

Before moving to New Jersey to be with her super man, she lived in Kansas, where she would secretly snap shots of meth labs and send them to the authorities.

“I used to carry weaponry with me. But seeing as how I’m in New York . . . I don’t,” Nyx said.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, Annoyed!
