Yes, the story is as kooky as it sounds
Michael Baulderstone, who was dressed as Spider-Man for a promotional event, spied a customer behaving suspiciously. CCTV footage shows him "leap" into action and confront the would-be shoplifter who had slipped a AU$160 (£97) X-Men book into his bag.
He said a group of Jedi knights blocked the door to prevent the thief from escaping, as The Flash looked on.
"I've had a look at the security footage and it shows Spiderman running down the corridor of the shop, grabbing this guy, hauling him off," said the 45-year-old.
