Golden Age Real Life Superheroes

Silver Sentinel; Super Hero and I, among others, are part of what Silver calls ” Golden Age ” real life superheroes ( RLSH ).
Growing up in the 60s and 70s, we’re spiritual uncles for a current RLSH Movement populated by mostly 20 somethings.
I like being a Golden Ager. I always admired Golden Age heroes of my time more than modern ones. Younger RLSH probably perceive the 1980s America where we came of age the same way we viewed the 1950s: a distant time of chic glamour and two fisted crusaders. For my age group Peter Gunn; Untouchables or Sean Connery James Bond reruns epitomized cool television heroism.
RLSH these days could say the same about Phillip Michael Thomas/Don Johnson Miami Vice episodes ( yes, it was on TV before becoming a Jamie Foxx movie, lol. ) or 1984’s cult classic movie: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The Eighth Dimension.
We’re from an era of a Cold War; high top fades and day glow fashions. I marveled at 1930s gangland violence. Young RLSH could do the same at documentaries about the 80s-90s Crack Wars or cinematic classics like Colors and Boyz N Tha Hood.
As a Golden Ager I grew up during a time when macho was still socially acceptable and our new wave activism has stood the test of time to now be considered ” Golden Age ” by peers a couple decades our junior.
I unapologetically believe in civic duty. I promote standing up to crime and reaching out against poverty. Discrimination is an old sparring partner and like past civil rights marchers and nationalists who inspired me, I too refuse to remain silent when prejudice is on the loose.
My RLSH approach combines NAACP/SCLC-style advocacy with creative activism enshrined by comic book icons like the Justice Society of America ( a model for my Street Team of America ) or Story Studios must-read Johnny Saturn epic.
There’s a heavy pulp novel influence to my work and always acknowledge Doc Savage and his Famous Five as prime examples of what a RLSH-like group of uncostumed crusaders would be.
Add The Avenger and Justice Inc.; Buckaroo Banzai; the Hong Kong Cavaliers and his Blue Blaze Irregulars alongside Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack to the list. I believe in having friends with whom you can save the world.
I’m old school. The 21st Century is a little light on values for my tastes. As a visionary I love its multi-media technology but work to upgrade people to keep pace with rapidly advancing technology.
The Golden Age school of thought provides contemporary RLSH with proven perspective on how to go about this very unusual brand of activism.
