Marvel Comics claims that Spiderman is its most beloved superhero. Spiderman’s credo is to “do good”, and even as Peter Parker he is always striving to help people. Spiderman is an agent for good and an international ambassador for Marvel Comics’ wholesome brand.
Maison Des Champs, who calls himself “Pro-Life Spider-Man”, is tarnishing Spiderman’s image by illegally climbing skyscrapers to raise money for his anti-abortion crusade. He was jailed for trespassing charges for his latest stunt, climbing a skyscraper in the Phoenix area during Super Bowl week.
After his Phoenix publicity stunt, he said: “abortion is just like climbing a skyscraper. It’s a matter of life or death.” How can you reason with anti-abortion zealots who rely on such irrational reasoning?
The real Spiderman wouldn’t be climbing skyscrapers for personal fame and glory in the guise of raising awareness for an anti-abortion stance.
The real Spiderman would escort vulnerable women to Planned Parenthood clinics, and he would climb a skyscraper only if it was on fire and there were victims who needed to be rescued.
Des Champs is no superhero, he is a parody of a superhero who is only admired by right wing wackos.
