    Street performers dressed as superheroes protest at city hall about LAPD arresting them for aggressive soliticiation and sidewalk blocking

    Following that recent lawsuit against the city, a handful of characters showed up in front of City Hall today to protest recent arrests by the Los Angeles Police Department. Although the City Council is on recess, Superman aka Christopher Dennis showed off his recent arrest citation to the press, while The Hulk aka Joe McQueen, argued that a screening and permitting process should be in place to allow well-behaved characters the right to make an "honest living" on Hollywood Boulevard, a process that would also weed out the more violent performers and those who "don't know their own character," according to McQueen. "It hurts me to see a Spiderman who doesn't know his lines. The tourists will quiz you." Additionally, he says that some characters are "bringing their own personal problems" to the boulevard.

    I've read some Wambaugh books that reference the LA street characters but I never realized how real they really are.

    A recent Joe Wambaugh novel is Hollywood Station. The author gives the wanna-be comic book characters some descriptive 'exposure'.

    I first learned about them in "Hollywood Crows."
