A Seattle 'Superhero' says he has an embarrassing problemJanuary 27, 2013 @ 4:57 pm (Updated: 1:30 am - 1/28/13 )
Jones says at the age of 17 he was diagnosed with a mild form of dyslexia.
Dyslexia is a learning disability that impairs a person's fluency or comprehension accuracy in being able to read. Quite often letters in words appear out of order for someone who is dyslexic.
"Instead of embracing this and learning to change or control the problem I just decided to avoid writing as much as possible and talk to people instead," Jones writes on his website The Phoenix Jones.com.
Now he's realizing as a masked crime fighter, he needs to write police reports just as officers do.
"All my life I have been embarrassed by my spelling and general grammar," says Jones. "I understand the rules of writing and can pass standardized tests but when I type my own thoughts they seem pretty jumbled."
While his website says "coming soon" no date is set for the release of his comic book.
