Gotham City has Batman, Metropolis has Superman and now Milwaukee has the Watchman. Patrolling the streets of Downtown Brew City, The Watchman is there for your protection. The Watchman is a member of the Great Lakes Hero’s Guild, a group of 9 real life superheroes who protect the fine citizens of the cities in which they reside. “Unfortunately there is only one of me, so I’ve got a lot of ground to cover,” The Watchman told a channel 6 reporter. Not only is protecting the Downtown area a lot for one superhero to handle, The Watchman also has a family, full time job, and attends school while he’s not out saving lives. And maybe if you’re lucky, you’ll see this masked man at a local charity function; a portion of The Watchman’s time is spent attending local events to help raise money for worthy causes.
So the next time you’re walking home after a night of drinking on Water Street, and see someone creeping through the shadows of the night, It might be a robber, or it might just The Watchman making sure you get home safely.
