A Toronto artist is ensuring his community feels protected by revamping neighborhood watch signs. Andrew Lamb is giving them a makeover by adding superheroes like Spiderman, Wonder Woman and the Hulk to existing city street signage.

While the artist is technically vandalizing public property, he doesn't feel his artistic additions are wrong per se "it's just spontaneous nostalgia and happiness." Having only received two complaints for 55 neighborhood watch upgrades, and many requests to add an image to in a particular area, it's likely Lamb's vigilante-inspired vandalism will continue.

Aside from classic superheroes found in comic books, other characters include the cast of the Power Rangers, Starsky and Hutch, Bruce Lee and a young Tom Hanks as seen in Turner & Hooch. Stats for Vigilante-Inspired Vandalism Trending: This Quarter & Warm
