London marathon organiser, Dave Bedford, says he is confident this year’s event will be trouble-free after making it mandatory for all runners to be dressed as super-heroes and crime fighters.
“We should have at least 10,000 Supermen, many thousands of Batman and Robins, and a similar number of Spidermen” said Bedford.
“And with over 17,000 women runners expected to run as Wonder Woman, I’d be surprised if any villain would be able to concentrate long enough to get up to no good.”
Bedford says the varied skills of the super-heroes will make it impossible for evil to prevail.
“The super- heroes’ x-ray vision and supersonic hearing means potential evil-doers will be quickly spotted, and the many phone boxes on route will help ensure a rapid response.”
“Try any funny business and the malcontent will be captured in a spider’s web and then restrained between Wonder Woman’s lithe, yet powerful, thighs – oh my, I think I need a lie down.”
