Can you still have local heroes, folk heroes, in the modern era? There was a time when kids looked up to people on the block, or from around town. A striker from the local football team who grew up within miles of the ground. Or a journeyman boxer who trains in the gym in town, a hometown hero despite his win / loss record. It's something that seems lost in the age of globalisation and mass media. All I see are kids in London wearing Messi shirts, or pretending to be Captain America. What about a local superhero?

Well, Tottenham has its own superhero and his name is Tiny Iron.
