The World Superhero Registry was established in March of 2005 and
since it's inception, has been a driving force in the RLSH community.
The World Superhero Registry was the first website completely devoted to promoting the Real-Life Superhero lifestyle and documenting the evolution of the RLSH subculture.
The World Superhero registry is not a membership site or a club: it is an independent entity which showcases authenticated Real-Life Superheroes who are taking action to improve the world in a concrete way
In order for a Real-Life Superhero to be added to the registry, there must be proof that he or she is actively involved in suitably heroic activities.
Proof of those activities is usually established via media coverage or firsthand accounts from respected figures in the RLSH community.
Due to the severely limited resources of the Registry, additions to the registry lag far behind the growth of the Real-Life Superhero community.
Partly due to the efforts of the World Superhero Registry, the Real-Life Superhero community has grown from a few isolated idealists scattered across the globe in 2005, to today's diverse and rapidly growing international community with hundreds of members and thousands of fans.
News coverage is ever increasing and the Real-Life Superhero community has been repeatedly featured in nearly every form of media.
Television, Radio, Internet, Magazines, Newspapers and Tabloids have all featured the RLSH community.
The diverse news outlets which have featured the RLSH phenomenon range from CNN to Rolling Stone magazine to the National Enquirer and beyond.
Numerous film producers, television executives, authors and comic book artists are currently working to bring the RLSH movement into the limelight.
Documentaries, fictionalizations and reality television shows are all reportedly in the works.
Because the Real-Life Superhero community is a grass-roots movement born of idealism, it's members often have strongly held divergent viewpoints.
At one end of this spectrum are those who exclusively participate in humanitarian causes, such as helping the victims of natural disasters, assisting the homeless, promoting awareness of domestic abuse, or protecting the environment.
At the other end of the spectrum, are the Crime-Fighting Real-Life Superheroes, some of whom actively pursue criminals and sometimes physically confront them.
While the majority of Real-Life Superheros have a live and let live attitude with regard to those with different styles, there are a significant number of individuals at either end of the spectrum who feel that those at the other extreme are possibly criminals, fools, or don't qualify as Real-Life Superheroes at all.
The World Superhero Registry is largely neutral in this matter and features Real- Life Superheroes of many different persuasions as long as they meet the guidelines for inclusion in the registry and can be authenticated.
The World Superhero Registry does not consider those purely engaged in costumed roleplaying or cosplay to be part of the actual Real Life Superhero community, although they are frequently associated with it.
Kevlex, the Webmaster of the World Superhero Registry has developed and maintained the website from day one and often serves as the voice of reason and moderation in a community filled with strong personalities and conflicting philosophies.
He has given numerous interviews to help promote the RLSH community and increase public awareness and understanding of Real-Life Superheroes.
Due to ever inreasing media attention, his preferred means of contact is by email.
His responses are often delayed due to the sheer volume of correspondence that he must deal with.
Because of these circumstances, Kevlex is rarely able to accomodate last-minute interview requests.
If a live interview is desired, advance planning is strongly recommended.
