NOT all superheroes wear capes.
On Sunday, three of Maitland's Rotary Clubs will pick up their brushes and paint tins to rid the city of graffiti.
The annual clean-up day isn't just focused on the fight against graffiti vandalism but also aims to encourage people to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti all year round.
The clubs involved include Maitland Sunrise, East Maitland and Rutherford Telarah.
East Maitland president Bob Coffey said the groups always needed help during the annual graffiti removal day.

"We have six definite sites. It's about community pride and safety," he said.
"People can get a perception of an area if there is a lot of graffiti around. Prompt graffiti removal gives the vision that an area is a safe place and also instills community pride.
"Anyone who wants to come along is welcome."
Maitland Council is also lending a hand to help by providing financial support for the work by sponsoring the trailers which holds the necessary tools.
Graffiti vandalism costs the state government and residents more than $300 million each year and affects community centres, memorials, libraries and sporting facilities as well as residential homes and businesses.
This year Graffiti Removal Day is on Sunday, October 27.
A list of clean-up sites is available on the official website www.graffitiremovalday.org.au.
