Cosplay Saves the Day

Talk about your "friendly neighborhood Spider-Man."

If this story doesn't make you go “awww,” then nothing can touch the far reaches of that dark, cavernous, and frozen piece of meat you pass off as a heart.


In Thailand, a young autistic boy was sitting on a third-story ledge of his special needs school. He was terrified of his first day at the school and absolutely refused to come inside, leading the teachers at the school to call the authorities for assistance.


Firemen responded, but it wasn't as simple as getting a kitten out of a tree-- so when the mother mentioned that her son adored superheroes, fireman Sonchai Yoosabai came up with a brilliant scheme: he dressed up as Spider-Man. As Spider-Man, Yoosabai coaxed the child to walk carefully to him with ease, assured that his hero was going to rescue him and keep him safe from monsters.


Awwww!


And if you want a giggle, here: “Somchai said he keeps the Spider-Man costume and an outfit of Japanese television character Ultraman at the station in order to liven up school fire drills.” Yowza. (Via Newsarama)

It is a cool story. Why use a House of M Spidey pic though?
