Some guy decided to interpret International Free Comic Day as Steal Anything You Want From A Comic Book Store Day. Thankfully Spiderman, some Jedi Knights, Flash and other costumed crime fighters set him straight.
Basically a fellow in Australia tried to walk out with a $US160 X-Men comic book without paying while 40 or so superheroes surrounded him. Most of the folks were under the impression that it was a staged event to fit the theme and didn't event realise that they were dealing with a real thief until Spiderman, the store owner, asked someone to call the police.
