So, a bunch of Batmen?  I mean, Batman doesn't have any superpowers, he's just a rich guy with cool toys and a suit.

This has been going on all over the country for quite some time.
There have been a few instances of things going horribly wrong, but for the most part it's just people in goofy costumes doing good deeds.

For the most part, I don't have a problem with this. They're trying to do good, and we need more of that.

However, this isn't England, and the bad guys here have guns. This is likely to end badly for them.

Would it be acceptable, by guild rules, to arch them?

GCI bylaws state that, for the first year, you're not allowed to choose your own arch.

Just because they say that dont'... doesn't mean they don't.
not to mention that they don't need them to fight crime. simply being out and about will cause criminals to go for softer targets.

How about Captain English, the Grammar Lantern, and the Black Librarian to save subby from his own headline?

So, what's wrong with people just reviving neighborhood watch? You don't have to dress up and use silly pseudonyms to call the cops. The same is true for simply being active in your neighborhood in general.
I'm reminded of married couples who can't get it on unless they dress like Papa Smurf and the Statue of Liberty and call each other "Ultra Piston" and "Mama Hotness".
Maybe all of America is just going through a mid-life crisis.

Do they assault random people with pepper spray and then hide behind the police like the Rainy Day Masked Douchebags do?

Basically my thoughts.  It sounds like a neighborhood watch program with the difference being they put on silly costumes and give themselves stupid names.

"The Exemplar" is a pretty good superhero name, actually. He'd be one of those gritty, quasi-mystical ones who had a brief but highly-regarded run in the 1970s but then got re-booted with totally different powers and backstory. His movie got stuck in development hell, and he was last seen as a background character in  Justice League Unlimited.

I'm seeing Hampton Roads appearing quite often in Fark threads.  We're approaching Florida tag-worthy sustained weirdness.

Exactly.  The police don't like competition.
