BELLEVUE — An 11-year-old boy is going to school Thursday in a soft cast with at least a broken finger after taking up a challenge from self-appointed superhero Phoenix Jones to punch him as hard as he could. Jones was invited to Bellevue’s Jewish Day School Wednesday to talk about bullying, said Jones’ spokesman Peter Tangen. But Tangen says kids were asking Jones if they could punch him in the armor. Denise, who didn’t want her last name published, says her son Noah was given the opportunity. “They were talking all about superheroes. (Phoenix) got up in front of the kids and was telling them all about his uniform, and it’s rubberized and armored and bulletproof,” Denise told KOMO NewsRadio. “My child gets up in front of him and (Phoenix) says to him, ‘OK, give me all you got…give me your best punch, but wait, but don’t do it too hard, you might get hurt.’ ” But she said there was her son in front of his classmates and a superhero has just challenged him to punch him as hard as he can, “and my kid took all his might and punched him!” The impact left Noah with a broken finger, and he’s now in a soft cast with further X-rays pending. Denise said she too wasn’t angry at Jones, but “the thing I want to get across is I don’t think any grown man superhero should ask a kid to punch him.”
You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. You don’t spit into the wind. You don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger and you don’t fucking punch Real Life Superhero Phoenix Jones. If it was that fuckin nancy Dark Guardian, swing away. But not Phoenix Jones. That dude is black, for God’s sake. First rule of being a white boy is don’t fight black kids.
More importantly what kind of school is letting this lunatic in to talk to their students? Thats what I wanna know. Bring in the local firefighters or the police officers or some of the normal people who actually contribute to society. Not the fuckin delusional grown man playing Halloween who runs around pepper spraying people with his nerd brigade filming him.
