In NYC, the culprits of gentrification wear no capes (for the most part. Rather, those that displace carry a different, less devious calling card; bucket hats, tortoise-shell frames and Starbucks as far as the eye can see. But one local legend (yes, already) has a scheme for how to counteract their whitewashing ways. That is, of course, if he were bestowed with some pretty hilarious superpowers. RATKING‘s Wiki chimes in on the latest episode of Complex & Mass Appeal’s SUPER, describing in great detail the lengths he would go to in order to protect his city from the ways of NYC’s plague of hipsters and yuppies, taking on the form of Irish/Puerto Rican hybrid hero “Leprecoqui,” who would wreck gentrifiers with every ounce of his being and all while fit with a spiffy pair of chancletas that embraced all sides of his particular ethnic patchwork. You can watch Wiki detail his plan of superpower-ed action on the latest installment of SUPER below, but be sure you jump back to see and hear what the likes of A$AP Rocky or the mighty Raekwon would do adorned with their own set of abilities.
