NSW Police’s super hero name game did not go well

There are plenty of Sydneysiders less than impressed the the lockout laws some claim have turned the city’s entertainment districts into ghost towns.

So when the social media unit at NSW Police decided to launch a fun little campaign on Facebook announcing that “Sydney is getting a New Hero”, it didn’t take long for the conversation to shift from anticipation to anger.

Indeed it never seemed to hit the anticipation stage.

Sydney's new hero

The Police Facebook page is currently getting inundated with helpful guesses as to what the new hero might be called.

“It’s Captain Bedtime! Making sure Sydney is tucked in safe and sound, sans-organic wine, by 1:30am,” Daniel Lockwood suggested.

“Is it a bird, is it a plane….. no it’s SuperBAN!” wrote Ian O’Connell, while Joshua Garden remarked “‘The Tumbleweed’ – his super power is changing an entire city to a ghost town.”
