Searching for Spider-man

On a cold winters day my wife and I are walking through Times Square. It’s raining. It’s raining hard. Out of nowhere Spider-man appears, complete with umbrella (??), and asks us to help him take down the Sinister Six using this specially made Statue of Liberty Torch. I can’t say much more than that but lets just say the world owes us a coffee and a good piece of cheesecake.

We kept hoping to bump into Spider-man again but he was very busy rescuing cats from trees because Superman is a big dull dud and doesn’t do that anymore. Every time he swung by I was only able to photograph the reaction of the fans and not him. He’s fast. But we did see him and War Machine going for coffee so that was nice.

There was a guy on the subway who we thought may have been Spider-man but figured he probably wouldn’t have been obvious and would have just sat down. You never know though. Hiding in plain sight and all that.
