Captain Bayonne patrols NJ park

Captain Bayonne has an origin story like all superheroes.  In 2010 he almost got hit by a car while he was training for the NYC Marathon so he decided to dress a little crazier so motorists would see him.  Some people started taking pictures of him and gave him the name Captain Bayonne.

Now, when he's not working at his job, he puts on his costume and mask and helps keep Bayonne clean by picking up litter and promoting a healthy lifestyle through exercise, especially for children.  He is a hometown icon and a true, real-life superhero.  Check him out!
