It's Comforting To Know That No Matter What You Do In Life, It Will Never Be As Awesome As … Hey, That's Pretty Cool!


All this story needs is Conan the Barbarian, Mister Spock, and the Highlander. And why not throw in Gollum while we're at it?

A comic book store owner dressed as Spider-Man became a real superhero for the day when he caught an alleged thief trying to steal an X-Men omnibus.

Michael Baulderstone, 45, was dressed as Spider-Man as part of a fancy dress open day at comic Centre in Adelaide, Australia, confronted the man when he claims he spotted him taking the £100 book.

Security tapes show Mr Baulderstone, addressing the man before stopping him and confiscating the book. On top of that, a group of Jedi knights blocked the door to prevent him from escaping, along with The Flash.

I want that video, not excuses.  The freeze-frame I've seen, of an angry Spiderman confronting the thief, is reason enough to click the link.
