'Who is Spider-Man?' Dickinson residents wonder
There are “assignments” for newspaper reporters, and then there are “ASSIGNMENTS.” A mysterious man has been spotted walking the streets of Dickinson dressed as Spider-Man. His antics have taken Dickinson children by storm and have garnered the attention of thousands on Facebook. Now The Press has been tasked with “finding Spider-Man” and we are on it.
In times of trouble, Dickinson has its very own superhero on watch — Spider-Man. His presence in the community has sparked social media unrest, with hundreds of likes, comments and shares. Multiple readers have reached out to The Press requesting that the newspaper look into the identity of Spider-Man.
While The Press can neither confirm nor deny the existence of Spider-Man, photographs of a man clad in a red and blue outfit fighting crime have been leaked on the internet and with almost 120 comments, sparked the interest of many. The photos were posted on the July 19 Facebook post of the public Dickinson, ND Classifieds Facebook page.
Jess Ica commented of her experience with Spider-Man.
“I was a little (too) overly excited to see him this morning! I didn’t think we would ever see him and sure enough he was about to cross the street my little guy was pretty excited too...Thank you Spider-Man for putting smiles on a lot of people’s faces. You definitely don’t go unnoticed,” Ica posted.
Carrie Bohlam shared her thoughts of Dickinson’s Spider-Man on a public post on the Dickinson, ND Classifieds Facebook page.
“He’s always running around the southside. One time I saw him on the corner where the underpass is and he was crouch down like Spider-Man; it’s crazy,” Bohlam posted.
One poster with the all too on the nose name of Peter Parker, Spider-Man’s alias, posted a response more than a week ago.
“I am moved (by) what people had to say about me. I do like the fact that people who actually do know me don't drop my name. I really appreciate that. All I'm going to say is I wear the mask for a reason, but here's the hint and this is because I (saw) this in two different comments — I'm not a female, I am a man. Thank you guys for the compliments,” Peter Parker posted on the comment thread.
The Press will continue to monitor the whereabouts and actions of Dickinson's very own Spider-Man’s and is asking the Dickinson community for its help in sending in your very best pictures of our hometown hero as we continue our efforts in securing an interview with the ever elusive, Spider-Man.
