The Watchman: Milwaukee’s own Superhero

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.
