Imagine what Mayor Daley would say if this British crime-fighting duo turned up in Chicago.
As we revealed yesterday, the two mystery men have been running around town doing good deeds such as helping stranded motorists and shooing streakers from football pitches.
“We left Gotham City for tax reasons. Superheroes get paid nothing nowadays,” he said “Even Batman is not safe from The Taxman but we are family men now and we have to survive.”
“We even have a new model Batmobile. The last one was very expensive to run but this one's got cheaper tax and it does 60 miles to the gallon.” But despite the demands on their time and money, our masked heroes — who declined to reveal their true identities to the Reading public — say they came here because the town needs them, and they will be around for as long as it does.
