Spider-Man foils comic book thief in Australia


A comic book shop owner in Australia became a real-life superhero when he caught a robber red-handed.

Michael Baulderstone, who was dressed as Spider-Man for a promotional event, spied a customer behaving suspiciously.

CCTV footage shows him "leap" into action and confront the would-be shoplifter who had slipped a AU$160 (£97) X-Men book into his bag.

Mr Baulderstone said customers at the shop in Adelaide thought it was a stunt until he asked them to call the police.

And your little jedi too
The article I read indicated that other folks, also in costume helped out.

Re: And your little jedi too
That's not the whole article - as always I put a link in the title. Several Jedi blocked the door, and the Flash did something or other. :) All in all, sounds vastly entertaining.

And when you think the world can't be more strange, something like this delightful episode comes along.

Good one on the shop owner.
