What is Superheroes Anonymous?


Superheroes Anonymous is a collective of Real Life Superheroes who aim to do good in the world and inspire others. Originally founded in 2007 by Ben Goldman and Chaim Lazaros as an annual conference for superheroes, Superheroes Anonymous has since become the legitimate face of the Real Life Superhero movement – bringing superheroes together in the real world to affect positive change. Most recently, Superheroes Anonymous is starting to hold bi-monthly meetings of Superheroes Anonyous that are open to the public. These meetings are intended to inspire the inner superhero by bringing established Real Life Superheroes together with aspiring superheroes. We will help individuals develop their superhero persona, educate them about the work of superheroes and organize large-scale patrols and missions. Become a superhero today!

The Amazing Adventures of Superheroes Anonymous

The first meeting of Superheroes Anonymous was held in October 2007 in Times Square, New York where superheroes met for the first time and helped the homeless, cleaned up the streets and patrolled the area doing random acts of kindness. It was the first such meeting of its kind and attracted widespread media attention, most notably from The New York Times.

Superheroes Anonymous tries to inspire the superhero in everybody through creative outreach, community service and education.

The second annual conference took place in New Orleans, LA in collaboration with The Black Ghost. For this event, the Superheroes Anonymous team drove 10 superheroes cross country in an RV, stopping in various destinations along the way to do good. Upon arriving in New Orleans, we rebuilt homes with Habitat for Humanity, cleaned up a school with All Congregations Together, helped the local homeless and marched against youth violence with Silence is Violence. We then gathered on the steps of City Hall as city officials declared it The Day of the Superheroes. The third annual conference was held in New Bedford, MA aka “The Secret City,” on Labor Day weekend 2009. The conference was spearheaded by New Bedford-based superhero Civitron. The fourth is now in planning for late 2010.

Superheroes Anonymous is also in the middle of planning several new programs, including a monthly meeting of Superheroes Anonymous that will bring established Real Life Superheroes together with aspiring superheroes in order to help bring out one’s inner superhero. We will also be organizing large-scale patrols. Email ben@beginnorth.com for more info!
