The video and the hearing proved otherwise, apparently. Also he unmasked and said he'd keep fighting crime after.

The hilarious part is that he broke rule one. YOU DON'T F**KING UNMASK. ESPECIALLY AT A PRESS CONFERENCE. Did this fool not read Civil War?

The funny part is that if this was a comic book plot, it'd undoubtedly be a frame up by a real life supervillain, all a giant conspiracy to make him unmask.

I was going to say we need more people like him, but...you can't have heroes without villains, right? I hope some crazed violent nutjob doesn't decide to don a costume and slice him up or something .___.

On a more positive note, his hair is amazing.

Also upon further thought, I think he realized that his name was going to be on the public record anyway because of the court case and that he had to unmask in court anyway and it was only a matter of time before the media showed his secret identity so he chose to unmask publicly on his own terms, which, in my mind, was a smart move

The strange thing is that most of the non-comic reading community support him while he recieves a lot of hate from comic book readers. Weird.

He likely watched Iron Man. Who announced he was Iron Man at a press conference.

My guess is that he unmasked because he is about to parlay his notoriety into opportunities, which makes him quite enterprising, and not at all a fool. He seemed quite intelligent in The Fox segment. Plus he has a really hot wife.

That he wasn't guilty, from what I heard. Could be totally wrong.

Very weird.

Haha. :P

Oh. You didn't premise your statement so I had no idea of the context. And from what I gather the prosecution chose not to prosecute. He never should have been arrested or made to post a $3,800 bond or spend 7 hours in jail in the first place in my opinion.

It is indeed weird that many comic book readers insult him and muc of the general non-comic-reading public support him. I have my theories as to why thi is.

uh no. I've been following Phoenix Jones for a bit, he doesn't seem like he's that kind of guy.  He was just trying to inspire and help people.

Yes. I agree. I have been following him for a couple of years as well. the "uh no' was not necessary I posted this subsequently:

There's no mystique to Phoenix Jone's superhero identity.He willingly showed the news anchor his secret base and Now his secret identity.I don't consider comic books a reality just yet. Until physically peak humans start successfully fighting crime and people get superpowers by genetic engineering then I'll happy to say that we live in a superhero universe filled with mutants and giant robots.
