We've seen Jedi Knights wipe out hoardes of advancing Battle Droids, clash sabers with ruthless Sith Warriors, and track down deadly bounty hunters across the galaxy. All in a day's work for them. But every once in a while they are eager to perform slightly less dangerous peace-keeping tasks...such as preventing theft from a local comic book shop.
"It sounds like a crazy comic book splot: Spider-man foils a robbery as Jedi knights block the would-be thief's escape and the Flash watches on.
This was just what happened on Saturday morning when a business owner dressed as Spider-man stopped a man from stealing a comic book worth $160.
Adelaide Comic Centre's Michael Baulderstone, 45, noticed a man "behaving suspiciously" at the back of his store.
Upon closer examination, he saw that the man had put a valuable 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."
