The fictional superhero Spiderman is known for his super strength and spider webs which he uses to stop crimes in his city.
In the city of Birmingham in the United Kingdom, a British Spiderman without superpowers and spider webs is helping out homeless men and women by giving them free meals. The 20-year-old man, who assisted homeless people for several years, decided to wear the iconic superhero costume to influence more people to do good deeds.
The anonymous Spiderman spends two or three nights a week buying sandwiches for the needy people living in the streets. At daytime, he works as an ordinary bartender.
Several people from his community observed the mystery guy’s unique way of helping people.
In his interview with Huffington Post, the masked crusader revealed: “Before when I was handing out food, no one would take a second look. But when they see Spider-Man handing out the food they come over and ask what I’m doing and are really interested. Most importantly [they] become inspired to get involved themselves.”
Many of them were inspired by his good deeds that they began sending out donations which the British Spiderman refused to accept. Instead, the British Spiderman is encouraging people to personally help those in need.
