S’porean superhero priced out of car market, fights crime by taking train

Feels National Day Rally 2013 failed to address his concerns as crime fighter.

VR Man II, who only wants to reveal his surname as Lye

VR Man II, who only wants to reveal his surname as Lye

It is hard being a superhero these days.

If you want to find out how hard, just ask VR Man II — the only crime fighting superhero left in Singapore.

Part of his job everyday, besides fighting crime in Singapore, is helping old ladies cross the road and prevent fallen leaves from clogging drains.

Be it molest cases, gang fights or illicit blow jobs for business deals, VR Man II has seen it all and brought all perpetrators to justice.

He has been on the job for more than 15 years and has been a key component in the CPIB.

However, since some time recently, he has been down on his luck.

High cost of living plus ever-increasing hefty prices involved in raising his two children to be upright citizens like him means he can no longer afford to drive in Singapore.

VR Man II, who declined to reveal his real name except his surname is Lye, said: “Now that I don’t own a car, I am reduced to taking public transport to fight crime.”

“But sometimes, people scream when they see me”, he continued sheepishly, “because they think I am a masked rapist.”

And his plight is even worse than everyone else because his concerns were not addressed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the National Day Rally 2013 last night.

Lye said: “The National Day Rally last night was supposed to be for every Singaporean. But it is obvious one segment was left out of PM Lee Hsien Loong’s address: Superheroes.”

So what does he hope will get better in the future?

“Superhero got MRT concession price anot?”, VR Man II asked, with a tear in his eye.

Wang Pei can be considered a new citizen of Singapore. She has been here all her life, just that her environment's changed beyond recognition.

    if Singapore had a Super Hero, then when a PRC and Singaporean is about to drown, who will he/she save first?

    Hen Hao Xiao: Look at his superhero costume — it’s obviously made from a PRC flag — pretty obvious where his loyalties lie.
