No, really, we haven’t gone off our meds (well we have, but that really isn’t at all a part of what of this story, and no, we aren’t (any more) delusion than normal.
This was the scene played out for real in an Adelaide comic book store when the owner, dressed as Spiderman, stopped a man shoplifting an X-Men book valued at $160.Two things, First, I find this story wicked-cool, Spidey, Jedi Knights, and the Flash working in tandem to stop a crook, and Second It’s Spider-Man you effin morons! SpiderHyepheMan! When are you ever going to get it right?
Adelaide Comic Centre owner Michael Baulderstone, 45, spotted a man "behaving suspiciously" at the back of his Rundle Mall shop on Saturday and discovered the man had the book in his backpack.
"We had about 40 people dressed up as their favourite superheroes to celebrate International Free Comic Day - so he didn't have much of a choice but to hand the X-Men Omnibus back after a little bit of a scuffle," he said.
"One of the funniest things about the incident was that I called for people to stand near the door and it just so happened we had people dressed as Jedi Knights there blocking the exit. The Flash was there too.
Still, it is wicked cool, eh?
