Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Although Batman is teaming up with Superman in the "Man Of Steel" sequel, in real life he's teaming up with Captain America to rescue household pets.
Ex-firefighter and Iraq veteran John Buckland (Batman) and his "Heroes 4 Hire" partner Troy Marcum (Captain America) were teaching kids about safety in Milton, West Virginia, when they saw a house on fire. They raced inside and saved a cat, then resuscitated it. The feline ungratefully hissed at Buckland, who didn't take it personally because "he just got resuscitated by Batman -- that's a pretty scary thing to wake up to."
It's pretty weird to hear Batman speak with a Southern accent, but Buckland has the skills and a badass suit. Maybe he could take the role away from Ben Affleck? OK, that's a long shot, but watch the video after the jump:
Creeping on ladies isn't often an honorable activity, but apparently it can save lives.
Jamal Harris and Aaron Arias, ages 17 and 19, were driving through Dallas, Texas when they saw a "kind of attractive" 25-year-old woman in the backseat of another car. She noticed the two guys checking her out and mouthed the words "help me." They realized she'd been kidnapped, quickly called 911 and followed the car until police could intervene.
Although these two guys saved her, and even got a hug out of it, don't think you're doing hot girls a favor when you blatantly stare at them. But it's nice to know that, sometimes, being horny can make you a hero.
When it comes to revolutionary dudes with swagger, nobody did it better than Martin Luther King Jr. Today is the 50th anniversary of King's "I Have a Dream" speech -- just one of the many major accomplishments he made throughout his lifetime. This man led marches, organized boycotts, inspired an entire generation to use non-violent activism, changed the course of American race relations for the better and yet his words were considered so dangerous he was locked up 30 times.
