Pop quiz, hotshot: what do you get when you mix a bunch of U.K. students, a super hero theme party and bounties of alcohol? Well, aside from the kidney failure, you find yourself with a league of drunken super heroes, roaming the early morning streets in search of imaginary battles. At least was the case for a quiet Worcester neighborhood after the Incredible Hulk, Superman and Thunderbird, among other heroes, flexed their super powers by bashing up a bunch of crap.
Andy Churchill, of Hylton Road, St John’s, was woken in the early hours by a loud bang and later discovered the sunroof of his wife’s car had been smashed with the roof itself badly dented.
After speaking to a neighbour the 49-year-old was told they saw a young man dressed as the Incredible Hulk jumping up and down on the Ford Fiesta at around 3.30am yesterday morning.
Bev Churchill, aged 52, said she saw a man dressed as Superman and a Thunderbird earlier in the evening. [WorcesterNews]
Let’s be honest here, while I’m certainly not condoning vandalism, I think we can all agree that this must have been one of the most entertaining things ever to watch. Just thinking about the literal context of the Hulk Smashed gives me goosebumps (or maybe that’s a rash?). Anyway, police are having a difficult time tracking down the big green guy, as their concern is that multiple students dressed as the enraged Bruce Banner that night. More than one Hulk, you say? Looks like I better park my bicycle in the garage tonight.
And a heroic salute to ComicsAlliance for the tip.
