Quickly swiping a book the thief made for the exit, only for his path to be stopped by two Jedi Knights and The Flash, turning around to leave he was then confronted by Spider-man who quickly took the book back and made an arrest.
Turns out the thief had wandered in on the shops annual cosplay day, meaning ironically the guy wearing normal clothes stuck out like a sore thumb in a pair of jeans. We much prefer though that the Spider-man (the stores owner) simply sensed his shop was being robbed and acted on instinct.
The worst part is though, the thief tried to rob the shop on national free comic day. He could have literally picked up anything else in the store and taken it for free but instead has to explain to other people that he would have gotten away with the crime of the century if Spider-man hadn’t been there.
Spider-man is always there!
