NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Brooklyn man who fights crime with a group of “real-life superheroes” wants to open a school for superheroes.
Chris Pollak, 29, also known as the Dark Guardian, is trying to raise money to open a school where he would train aspiring superheroes in mixed martial arts and wall-climbing.
“Some people call me a real-life superhero, but really I’m just a guy trying to make a difference,” said Pollak, who is a martial arts instructor by day.
By night, Pollak puts on his black jacket with red stripes and a bulletproof vest to patrol neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Pollak has launched a campaign on Indiegogo to raise $8,000 for the school.
As of Thursday, more than $200 had been raised.
The school, which will be called “Hero,” will offer classes for students ages 4 and up.
