Spider-Man Assaults NYPD Cops, Gets Arrested

Spider-Man usually stops crime, but in Times Square, he was committing one. Junior Bishop was the man inside the Spider-Man costume who caused a ruckus. Bishop is one of the many performers he get money for taking money with tourists.

Police allege that Bishop had been demanding a $10 payment from people who wanted a photo with the superhero.That demand for payment caused a problem: costumed characters are only permitted to accept tips for photos. When the cops approached him and asked to see identification, things went down hill.

Elmo looks shocked, and seriously it had to be the Miles Morales Spider-Man!?

Korean Spider-Man’s Erection

spider-man erectionLook Out! Here comes the Spider-Man.

In South Korea, folks are a bit stiff about a Spider-Man sculpture at the Lotte Shopping Center in Busan. The sculpture, by artist Eunsuk Yoo, stands erect high on the building… no really, the sculpture is erect… it has a boner.

Standing above, and pointing to the mall’s playground and rest area, images of little Spidey has gone viral, leading to outrage over it’s anatomical addition. Yoo, responding to demands to change the sculpture, instead deciding to bring it down from its perch.

On his Facebook page, the artist provided his reasons why:

I am the artist who made this piece. My reason for it was that I wanted apply the natural physical phenomenon to a superhero depict whats’s natural in the morning without lies and superficial-ness in a comical way.

There have been some comments on various community sites and Facebook pages that this is lewd and a disgrace to the source material. Lotte Shopping Center has received many complaint calls this morning from a certain organization, and after their meeting, it was decided that I have to either modify or take the statue down. Instead of modifying my work, I’ve decided to take it down.

 

 

It was ok for about a year and now it has to be taken down due a sudden interest in the piece, which is sad. But I understand that a piece that could be potentially interpreted as lewd can be offensive at a place like shopping mall. It’s disappointing, but I’ll reach out to the public with a better work next time.

Think Marvel was throbbing mad about this? I doubt this was blessed by them. Overall, folks should loosen up, and not be so stiff over these things…

Mile Morales Joins the All-New X-Men

On his Tumblr blog, writer Brian Michael Bendis posted the cover to All-New X-Men #32 By Sarah Pichelli. As you can see, it “welcomes” Miles Morales to the team, which opens up a whole bunch of questions.

For those that don’t know, Morales is the Spider-Man of Marvel’s “Ultimate” universe, not exactly where the All-New X-Men are located. Is he completely leaving the Ultimate universe? Are they heading to his? Is this part of time being broken? We’ll find out soon enough!
