Real life super-villain Rex Velvet has been captured!
But not by his arch-nemesis, Phoenix Jones. Instead, Rex Velvet went down in a silly string fight against Agent C – otherwise known as 12-year-old Colby, a Seattle kid who has been diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. Colby’s greatest wish is to be a secret agent, and with the help of the local Make-A-Wish Foundation, Colby’s dream came true.
When Rex Velvet kidnapped the Seattle Seahawk’s mascot, it was Agent C on the case to thwart that dastardly super-villain!
Here’s a video of the diabolical Rex calling out his foe:
This is just delightful news. We’ve been following the awesome adventures of Rex Velvet since he made his debut, but to see him actually use his villainous persona to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation? That’s beyond awesome! This guy is the greatest. And Agent C is pretty cool too.

Seattle Supervillain Rex Velvet rails against hero Phoenix Jones in his latest video. Can brightly-coloured tights and goodwill stand against cunning and resourcefulness?
For those of you keeping track of Superheroes in the real world, the city of Seattle is home to homemade superhero Phoenix Jones. Jones has administered his personal brand of self-styled vigilante justice since 2011; equipped with body armour, a stun baton, mace, tear gas and handcuffs.
Jones, with his ten-member costumed crimefighting group, “Rain City Superhero Movement” have been fighting and preventing crime in Seattle and parts of Washington for more than a year without any response from the supervillain community–until now. Behold, Rex Velvet!
