Spider-Man crime wave spreads to Hollywood Boulevard


Marvel’s Superior Spider-Man marketing plans have gone too far.

First there was the confrontation in Times Square between the wall-crawler and a woman who wouldn’t hand over a couple of bucks for a photo, and now he stands accused of stealing $6,000 in Hollywood. Sure, that’s a little outside of his usual stomping grounds, but times are tough.

NBC New York reports that Hollywood police are on the lookout for a ol’ web-head after he allegedly stole a paper bag filled with $6,000 in cash and credit card information from a Starlines Tour Bus who was leaving the company’s Hollywood Boulevard headquarters on Friday. Since then, police have been rounding up Spider-Man impersonators who were seen in the area of TLC Chinese Theatre (formerly Grauman’s) at the time of the crime.

That may not be an easy task, as Hollywood Boulevard is lousy with people in superhero costumes (of course, I have no idea why the cops think the guy would steal six grand and then head back on the street in costume). But they’ll have help: Other impersonators, including Superman, Batman and Catwoman, have offered to help in the search.




J. Jonah Jameson was right!!

I told you he’s a menace!

“Marvel’s Superior Spider-Man marketing plans have gone too far.”

They went too far the moment anyone at Marvel looked at that idea and said “Ok, let’s do that.”

And a robust “Hahaha” to all of this commentary!

I second Carrie. You guys are awesome.

This is what happens when Doc Ock takes mind swaps with Spider-man . . . not cool Doc.

Well, Spider-Man is a villain now, so I guess this was to be expected.

I don’t understand how the cops expect to find the guy this way. Assuming he’s dumb enough to go back on the street in costume in that area, all he has to do is say it wasn’t him. They have no way of proving he did it. Cops, what a bunch of tools.
