Motor Mouth, a Mission native who wishes to remain anonymous, wanted to help people. After reading the comic book “Kickass,” he researched what a real-life superhero was and decided to become one.
He lives in the East Bay, and when he’s not a substitute special education teacher, he puts on his Motor Mouth costume.
With the help of other real-life superheroes who are part of the Northern California Protectorate he created, he goes out and helps those in need. In recent months he’s provided security at Occupy Oakland and has been walking the streets of San Francisco and cities in the East Bay to hand out bags of food and supplies to the homeless.
