    Crimson Fist is a Real Life Superhero originally based out of Atlanta, Georgia, currently operating in Oakland, California.


    Atlanta Years (2006-2015)

    Crimson Fist began doing safety patrols and outreach in downtown Atlanta, Georgia as a civilian in 2006; before adopting a superhero identity in early 2008. They served as a satellite member of Team Justice, Inc[1] and were a founding member of the Atlanta chapter of the Guardian Angels, later serving as assistant director of the group before eventually leaving due to ideological differences. In 2009, they began an alliance with fellow superhero Metadata. The pair would eventually marry in 2011. In 2012, Crimson Fist was featured in the french documentary "Deviens Un Super Heros Pour De Vrai". [2]

    In 2013, Crimson Fist began exclusively patrolling the Castleberry Hill neighborhood of Atlanta. Not long after, they were approached by Phoenix Jones with a proposal of establishing an Atlanta chapter of the Rain City Superhero Movement.[3] This led to the formation of the short-lived Gate City Superhero Movement, which dissolved after several months.[4] Crimson Fist continued to patrol the area, eventually garnering much recognition and support for their activities in the area. They were an honored recipient of Creative Loafings 2013 “Best of Atlanta” Awards[5] and featured in a short documentary in the same year[6]

    In 2014, they were invited to present a TED talk at Georgia Tech University.[7][8] The same year, they also gave a presentation on a theoretical crime prediction system at Phreaknic hacker and technology conference in Nashville, Tennessee. It was here that they met and became a member of Freeside hackerspace, with whom they collaborated to create the system described in their presentation. The following year, the group returned to Phreaknic to present the fully functional prediction system. This same year they and Metadata divorced.

    California Years (2016-Current)

    In 2016, Crimson Fist left Atlanta and moved to southern California. They began patrolling San Diego, often working alongside the Xtreme Justice League. Additionally, they began organizing monthly team-up patrols in Hollywood, featuring members of the XJL, California Ronin, and former members of California Initiative: Los Angeles. In this year they also participated in HOPE events in both San Diego and San Francisco. At the end of the year, they retired from active patrolling due to medical issues, but continued supporting various mutual aid and antifascist efforts in the San Diego area under their civilian identity.

    Sometime in 2019, they relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area and quietly began assisting the California Initiative: Oakland-East Bay in outreach efforts, while starting to train for a return to patrolling. In June of 2020, they came out of retirement in response to the rise of fascist violence. Adopting a new logo and red and black suit, they began performing weekly safety patrols of Oakland's Lake Merritt area, before later relocating their efforts to combat racist attacks in Chinatown.

    In January 2021, they began doing weekly outreach missions in San Jose, forming a partnership with Batman of San Jose. In August 2021, they officially joined the California Initiative: Oakland-East Bay. In September of the same year, they were awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Oakland City Council. [9]

    On January 1st, 2023, they worked with Batman of San Jose to provide relief during intense floods in the Bay Area. This lead to the formation of BASH (Bay Area Superheroes). After maintaining membership with both teams for a time, they officially announced their departure from the California Initiative on June 26th, 2023.
