Spiderman Stops Comic Book Thief

One Australian would-be thief found out the hard way not to mess with Spiderman. It seems the perp was trying to walk out of a comic book store with a valuable copy of an X-Men comic. Unfortunately for him, he did not count on Spiderman catching him in the act and calling on the help of a couple of Jedi knights to block the door.

The Sun is one of the newspapers that seriously limit use of its content, so I'll just provide a link to the whole story rather than to even quote from the article like I usually do.

Link to the Sun newspaper article, including a short video of the incident can be found here.

Good job, Spidie.


  1. Moments like that are priceless!! Of all days to try and steal something!!

  2. I wonder what the responding cops thought, Elise, when they saw the gang that corralled the thief...had to require a bit of a double-take on their part.
