This may be the geekiest arrest ever.
International Free Comic Day meant that there were about 40 people dressed in costumes when someone decided to try to steal from a comic book shop in Australia this past weekend. So it’s not really surprising that it turned out to be Spider-Man (actually the store’s owner) that apprehended him – with some help from the Flash and a couple of Jedis blocking the door. Apparently the security footage shows “Spider-Man running down the corridor of the shop, grabbing this guy, hauling him off.” What heroics!
I wonder how many people thought they were LARPing?
