Dude, Spider-Man Got Arrested This Weekend!

Not-so-"Friendly Neighborhood" Spider-Man


Holy Moly! I know The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was terrible and all, but that’s no excuse for Spidey to be lashing out like this!

Okay, so it’s not Andrew Garfield inside the spider-suit. But if there’s one thing I know about the average American, it’s that we’re a heck of a lot more interested when incidents involve costumed superheroes…official or not.

This particular Spider-Man was arrested in Times Square on Saturday, after an officer confronted him over the fact that he was charging people $10 for photographs. I have no idea about the legality regarding that complaint, though it doesn’t seem to me like there’s anything wrong with it (even if it is kind of lame). Still, Spidey began to get belligerent with the officer, and that’s when things escalated quickly.

After an altercation rather unbecoming of a Marvel superhero, it took two cops to subdue the Amazing one. No word yet on whether Spider-Man was blasting the coppers with web-shooters at the time. But the police got back at him tenfold when they de-masked the mysterious man. That’s pretty much the worst thing you can do to a superhero.

The real Spider-Man would have never done something like this,” quoth one rather astute officer on the scene.
