Robbery Foiled by Spider-Man, The Flash, Jedi Knights

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?
