Comic superhero patrolling Wenatchee streets

WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) -- A Wenatchee man dresses up in the costume of the Marvel comic character Deadpool about once a week and goes around the city looking for people to help.

The man who did not reveal his name to The Wenatchee World says he is not actively seeking out crime but would call police and hold a criminal until officers arrive. He puts up fliers to let people know what he's up to, so they won't be alarmed by a superhero appearing.

Police Capt. Doug Jones says they've had no complaints about Deadpool. Jones says, "Anyone doing good deeds is encouraged unless they get too pushy."
