History

Discovering the movement of Real-life Superheroes in the Spring of 2010, SkyMan was born. Skyler credits the documentary "Real Vigilantes, Real Superheroes"[1] attatched to the Watchmen Ultimate Boxed set as his introduction. 

SkyMan started out in the Spring of 2010, on Arbor Day. He showed up at an event in a very early iteration of a outfit and helped remove invasive plants and brush from a park in Kent, WA. 

Operating from April to June without any local superheroes to partner with, SkyMan stuck to learning about the movement; researching the requirements, expectations, and introducing himself to the online aspects of the community through involvement in TheRLSH.net forum. 

In June of that same year SkyMan was able to coax old-school RLSH the White Baron out of semi-retirement to mentor him. The Baron has his own unique history in the Seattle superhero scene

SkyMan and White Baron started out patrolling a downtown Seattle park with a wide-open area. Cal Anderson Park has since become a favorite patrol area of SkyMan's as well as the surrounding Capital Hill neighborhood in Seattle. 

Three weeks after the intial meetup and pairing with White Baron, SkyMan traveled down to Portland, Oregon to meet with then-pillar of the modern RLSH movement, Zetaman and his team, The Alternates. It was here that SkyMan had his first meetup with a group of other like-minded people in outfits. This was also SkyMan's very first time being filmed on camera prior to his appearance in Michael Barnett's 2011 documentary, 'Superheroes'.
