PULLMAN, Wash.-Not every university can say they have a genuine superhero on campus, let alone three. Washington State University's Coman Hall is home to the three newest caped crusaders this side of Gotham City: Bagman, Bagfreak and T-Bag.

Clad in uniforms of plastic garbage bags (hence the names), the trio patrols Coman and Scott halls to preserve truth, justice, the American way and scholars' sanity in the midst of midterms, finals and other scholastic nuisances.

"I used to be a normal college student, like the thousands of wonderful people that go here," Bagman said, making his voice deeper to sound heroic. "One night, I was stumbling around the hall, under some strange force. I stumbled into the janitorial closet. I came out a different person, forever changed," Bagman said.

Bagfreak joined up after seeing one of Bagman's earlier runs.

"I was visiting a friend of mine in (Coman) and I saw the first Bagman," he said. "It was a far cry from what you see today. He had the same thoughts and dreams, but (his costume) was made primarily of small plastic bags and toilet paper."

T-Bag joined the team as a cadet, then became a full-fledged member.

"They were going on one of their runs and I supported their cause in every way. So I just joined up and that's how it's been ever since."

Members of the team have secret identities, but were unwilling to reveal them.
