As far back as 2011, reports have been coming in of a sometimes masked others not, vigilante preventing crimes around our city. The first known report was submitted by an elderly women who told officers that she noticed man in her yard attempting to steal her show Pugs (dogs). She claimed that a boy flew in from the sky, knocked the thief down and tied him to the tree nice and tight, to wait for the police to arrive. The reports and stories similar to this one have been coming in on a consistent basis. Pleased residents of our town have been voicing their praise for the heroic efforts this boy has shown to keep our city safe. On the other hand the mayor and Chief of police have been known to voice their skepticism on the overall good that civilian vigilantism brings our town. Last year the Police Chief Tim Vasquez said that civilians only place themselves and others in danger when they attempt to bring people who commit crimes to justice. None the less the boys efforts have been noticed and praised. The name given to him by some of the first beneficiaries of his heroism in Super/Spider-Man.

They are making the hero their new star in their latest superhero movie. With an overall budget already set at 150 millions dollars, they (Disney) are not shying away from attempting to make this the best super-hero movie ever made.
