This is why if you bring an immobilizing less than lethal weapon to the party you also need to carry something to safely counteract it.

Glue bomb to trap target but solvent spray to get it off accidental victims and the air way of actual targets.

Not just bystanders, but the intended victim, too. What were you going to do? Take back the purse, then leave the thief to live out the remainder of his days stuck to the sidewalk?

I’m all for deterring crime, but low-level, non-violent criminals permanently plastered to the sidewalk at regular intervals seems both inconvenient and unsustainable.

Spiderman gets away with it all the time! And many times hanging from high up places like lamp posts, which would make getting the criminals down safely a giant pain.

Spider-man is a menace!

Seriously, though, I believe Spider-man’s webs are canonically established to degrade naturally after a few hours.

That has some disturbing ramifications for the villains he leaves “hanging around” at heights where terminal velocity can be achieved, but you certainly can’t make the argument they’ll be there indefinitely.

Terminal velocity is the speed at which drag and gravity equalize and acceleration stops. Basically, max speed for a falling object.

It is not the speed at which a falling person will die when they hit the ground.

Okay, rule number 1, Ethan: NEVER tell a citizen you gonna BOMB them with something!

Seriously, what are they teaching at Hero Schools today? XD

Well, I guess such a school or at least “schooling” for Vigilantes would be helpful, especially if kids are starting to find superpowers about them which I bet is superscary and superawesome for them at first but try to be a superpowerless parent to a child that can breath fire, fly away or is strong as hulk while being a five year old boy.^^;

Ok ok … rule number one: don´t tell people you are going to lube them up unless you got an established safe word – and I´m certain his safe word isn´t “police!”.

Ofc the whole bit with “oil bomb” and then “incendiary bomb” might not have helped either.

This whole thing reminds me of various trick arrows from the Thief games. MAN you could pick the wrong arrow at times…

I’m not on the phone I was before with the screenshot, but when here reading the comments of a recent post, Chrome got redirected to some random .info site. I dropped a comment on that post, but I’m not sure if it saved properly.

The irony is, they haven’t done anything really heroic… most of what they stopped, they caused in the first place. That’s not heroic.

That’s the problem superheroes often have, they get villains who target them, who would likely not have ever become a threat if the heroes hadn’t provoked them.
