Mysterious Spider-Man Is Going Around His City Feeding The Homeless
New Yorker no more: Spider-Man has packed up and moved across the pond to help out those in need in Birmingham, England.
Okay, so it's not really Spider-Man -- but there is a man in the UK town who dresses up as Spider-Man a few nights a week to hand out food to the hungry and the homeless.
The anonymous 20-year-old has long been involved in charitable and volunteer work but has only just begun to gain attention because of his eye-catching duds.
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 are really interested. Most importantly, [they] become inspired to get involved themselves.
He's been making his rounds throughout Birmingham for about a month and has since become something of a celebrity. Still, he promises his intentions are entirely pure.
I believe that we need to look at everyone as humans and help each other the same as we would a close friend.
Our Spidey senses say Birmingham is about to become a much better place, thanks to the selfless work of this anonymous hero.
Check out some photos below.
Spidey documents his evenings on Twitter.

Sometimes he donates clothing, as well.

He uses his Spidey senses to find the people who need help most.

So far, he's been pretty successful.

Like the real Spider-Man, nobody knows his real identity.
Very rewarding helping helping the @AlbertStreetPro #BrumSpiderman pic.twitter.com/fjDqxEZTjX — Birmingham Spiderman (@BrumSpiderman) March 11, 2015
