Superhero Phoenix Jones at the premiere of IFC Midnight's "Super" at the Egyptian Theatre on March 21, 2011, in Hollywood, California. The superhero narrowly avoids assault charges.

Luke Burbank, host of the podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," joins Madeleine for his weekly edition of "Awesome/Not Awesome": Phoenix Jones is a self-styled Seattle superhero who somehow avoided charges for pepper-spraying a group of people at a nightclub. A Seattle bartender posted the name of a mean customer (he wrote 'you could stand to lose weight' on the receipt) on Facebook, the internet went crazy, hunted him down ... but they got the wrong guy. And Hilary Swank is now apologizing for having attended the birthday bash of the Chechen President (and infamous dictator) for money.
