Citizen Prime is an American Real Life Superhero in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is currently retired. When active as a RLSH, he was focused on inspiring others into doing their civic duty. Activities he would pursue while in costume were inspirational school visits, neighborhood cleanups, protest participation and more. He has made several appearances in the news, both print and television.
Citizen Prime has retired as of 2009. Here is his farewell letter as posted to his MySpace:
- It is with a sense of resolute peace and serenity that Citizen Prime is putting down the cape and cowl. I am going to be spending my time making my own children strong and resilient, and fostering love in my family. Truthfully, this is a decision that I have been wrestling with since the birth of my second child and it has finally won me over with its reason and wisdom.'
- Truthfully, the Real Life Super Hero movement and I have always been somewhat at odds. My message has been one of hope and peace through positive action. The darker elements of the movement always threaten to engulf the social enlightenment I, and others, advocate and it eventually kept me at arm’s length from the majority of the RLSH. While I always found this regrettable, I also found it inevitable, and it made me wonder if Citizen Prime’s presence was contrary to the very message I evangelized.
- I wish no one or no thing ill will and encourage all who have taken this path to see what differences they can make in the world. The Real Life Super Hero movement is powerful and important. I must put it aside as I have three people in life that take priority and I feel I must dedicate my life to them now. Those three people are my wife, my son and my daughter. I have come to a decision that they are far better served with a husband and father who can dedicate his energies to making their lives everything they can possibly be. I leave this movement knowing there are many of you who are good people. You will and must carry your awesome message forward to the world. God bless you all and perhaps Citizen Prime will live on in a fictional Prime-verse through stories and graphic novels. Who knows what the future will bring. And whatever that future is, it is up to each of you to contribute your fair share.
- Best Always, Citizen Prime
