I'm the hero formerly known as Takedown!
*I'm a 40 yr old comic book geek. I've been a police officer for the last 16 years and currently hold the rank of Police Detective and after 9 yrs on street patrol, and another 5 as an Investigator, 2 spent as an instructor at the Police Academy and now I'm back investigationg Felony cases.
I have been married for almost 9 years and have 3 children, 17 & 24 yr old boys, and a 22 yrs old girl.
I indulge in many differnt video games, play D&D, run, bike and read comics on a weekly basis.
In February of 2007, I auditioned for the Sci-Fi channels; "Who Wants to be a Superhero?"

9 other heroes and myself will be helping Stan Lee fight crime and suppress evil!!!!
Hey guys, make sure you check out this audition footage available at yahootv. Just copy and paste the link!
Since winning I've traveled the country doing public appearences and more importantly, giving my presentation on "How to be a Hero in your Community". This is for elementary school age children and I've given it to almost 5000 kids in the last 2 yrs. My public appearences as The Defuser are starting to slow down but it's been a hell of a ride and I'd like to thank everyone for all their support.
You can always find me on my website; www.thedefuser.net or on Facebook, under my alter ego, jarrett crippen.
