Sometimes superheroes need a little break from their home base. There’s a lot of pressure on a hero to stick up for Gotham, Metropolis, or, yes, even New York City. So when a masked cosplayer dressed as Spider-Man hung upside down on an MBTA train in Boston on Wednesday, it’s not that surprising. Everyone needs a vacation — even Peter Parker.
