So, these idiots have attacked four people and got away with 2,000yen. Obviously professionals! How long is it gonna be before they actually kills someone for twenty bucks? But, we know the Japanese police are on the case and they will catch them promptly. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

In the movie Spiderman 2, Spidey says the suit rides up in the crotch.

Well so much for your "FRIENDLY neighborhood Spider-man."

Time to call in the "J" version of the Kingpin. I'm sure he would be able to help out the j-cops.

What sort of masks were they wearing? Would that be 'Balaclava.?' Perhaps images of Beatles? Spider-man? Superman would come handy to follow those two scumbags. They must be fast as 'Speedy Gonzales or Road Runner.'

Haah, they took the risk of assaulting 4 people and only got away with 2000 yen? They could have made better doing spiderman antics at a busy train station!

Don`t give them ideas.

I would think it easy to disarm them and trap them in their own web of destruction. Romulus is famous for his utility belt.
