In the UK you’re currently not allowed outside unless it’s for an essential food shop or one hour of exercise.
The cause is good; to slow COVID-19’s spread, flatten the curve and stop the NHS from being overwhelmed, but it has resulted in a lot of bored kids.
Enter Stockport’s own Spider-man (spoiler: Spider-men). This masked hero uses his one-hour of exercise to entertain kids as he does so dressed up as Spider-man! The streets of Stockport aren’t where I’d expect to see Spidey!
There’s now a Facebook Page for the friendly neighbourhood Spider-man, and on it, we discover that this hero is actually two friends. They take turns.
The Facebook Group was created today and already has over 1,000 members. In fact, fans of the street-level superhero are flooding in! The national press has taken notice and I wonder if we’ll start to see copycats (of the good kind).
