ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A slightly podgy fellow who dresses like a low-rent Spiderman terrorizes Warsaw with silly string and ill-advised climbing stunts.
Polish Spiderman Wreaks Havoc
Wait till you see German Superman…who is first?
Who is playing the spiderman theme? I must have it.
I think the theme is the one the Electric Company used (the kids’ show in the 70s)
Yes, it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTm-RapqsOw

If Germany invaded Poland again just to get this guy it would be excessive but understandable.
The use of ‘terrorizes’ is so very American.
I suspect this character is probably more of a minor irritation
Seriously, I wait for the day when this is actually significant.
Poles appear to be extremely tolerant. Here, that guy would get his ass kicked in about three minutes.

@boingboing-88479e328a8633f54e9c667651832fbc:disqus When not being occupied by Nazis, the Pole are really laid back people. Their main hobbies include trying to surpass the Czech Republic for most beer drank per capita.
But they will never succeed! Can I get a “hell yeah” from my Bohemian brothers?
Im sorry but i chuckled, more than once
Don’t feel bad, I laughed my ass off. I love his mad dash away from the cops, he runs funny :D
The Romanian Spider Man is a spider who behaves like a man, gets drunk, abuses wife&kids, then vomits on the dog. Etc. But just like the regular, real super-heroes, he wears his underwear over the pants.
This guy became Spider Man when a spider bit him on the eyeball, and the venom went through his optic nerve and necrotised his brain.
I had to share this with a Polish colleague of mine. We both agreed that the best part was when Spiderman got scared away by the lady who was going to hit him with her purse.
He is neither friendly nor neighborly.
Runs around with a silly string can
Throws spaghetti, in your eyes,
Middle aged waist, a bit wide
Here comes the Spiderman.
The “cease and desist” letters from Marvel’s legal department must have driven him insane.
i LOLed. but i still prefer italian spiderman
you’d be a dick too if when being a child, you had witnessed with your own eyes the fact your parents of millionaire were killed cruelly, so affected your strong desire of revenging your parents….
I think you’re getting your super dudes confused….
Polish Spider Guy really brings new meaning to the phrase “with great power comes great responsibility.” I guess with mediocre power comes a “fuck it” attitude.
I think David was referring to this - http://boingboing.net/2011/08/22/a-chinese-version-of-batmans-origins.html
Little did he know that the man emerging from the porta-potty would then be angry enough to attend Octopus Medical School, becoming one of the great villains of all time…
“With great power comes great responsibility.”
Agreed. And this guy has no real power and is completely irresponsible, which maybe proves the maxim (or maybe not.)
It was mildly funny though.
Is that Oakland rapper V-Nasty in the yellow shirt?
Where’s the Green Goblin when you need him?
I just noticed that it’s typically the women who go after him. Probably a good idea not to mess with the women in Poland I guess. My favorite is definitely the lady who swung her purse at him.
He reminds me the spanish Fat Spiderman from Plaza Mayor in Madrid: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=58416272966&v=photos
He’s a quite famous character, who has been there for years.
