Bee Sting is an American Real Life Superhero in Detroit, Michigan who was previously a member of the Michigan Protectors before his misdemeanor arrest in April 2012. His costume is designed to be utilitarian in a paramilitary theme with the symbol of a bee.
According to claims as posted on the Michigan Protectors' website, Bee Sting is an injured veteran of the Iraq War. He became a RLSH after returning from his deployment in an attempt to become a better person as he states that "he realized that the person he had become was not for his own personal benefit, but for the benefit of others."
April 2012 ArrestEdit
Bee Sting was arrested after his shotgun misfired during a struggle with a trailer park resident. The struggle had apparently been instigated by a noise complaint. After the arrest, Bee Sting's identity was quickly revealed as Adam Besso and his life as a RLSH was often reported upon in news articles written on his arrest.
On June 22, 2012, Besso accepted a plea bargain with prosecutors and plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of attempted assault with a weapon in exchange for being released for jail time already served of 102 days and 2 years of probation.
August 2012 to PresentEdit
In August, 2012, Bee Sting began The Armor of Light Ministry. With the help of his older sons, they continued homeless outreach missions in Pontiac and Detroit, Michigan.
In August, 2013, The Armory of Light Ministry held their first major event at Capitol Park in Detroit, Michigan. The event brought in members old and new from across the state.
In September, 2013, The Michigan Protectors name was renewed. With the help of veteran members and a band of new teammates from as far away as Texas, they began setting their sights on larger homeless outreach projects, bold crime fighting plans, and other public-interaction initiatives.
