ATLANTA -

He wears a mask and superhero suit while patrolling the streets of Atlanta's Castleberry Hill neighborhood.

Many nights you will find the masked man walking the streets with his wife Meta Data while keeping an eye out for those who would break into cars or cause damage in Atlanta Police's Zone 5.

He doesn't talk about his personal life, but says so far, he has kept his efforts secret from his family.

The Crimson Fist says he started his "do-gooding" in 2006 when he distributed water and food to the city's homeless in Woodruff Park.
