Many of us may dream of being a hero, in the words of singer David Bowie, "just for one day." Former Sandusky resident Jerry Wible got to live that dream by portraying Spider-Man at a Wal-Mart just outside of Atlanta.
"I spent a little bit of time upside down or hanging sideways on a counter, and a great deal of time crouching, which my legs punished me for the next day," Wible said via e-mail.
The five-hour experience on March 24 was part of a nationwide promotion for "Spider-Man 3," which is being released in theaters Friday.
Some of the youngsters requested "Spidey" walk on the walls or shoot some of his webbing from his wrists. Wible declined, telling them "webbing and footprints are tough to clean off walls."
