Spider-Man prays (for Uncle Ben?) at the Wailing Wall

Why is Spider-Man praying at Jerusalem's sacred Wailing Wall? Is he mourning for Uncle Ben? Hoping for Aunt May's continued good health?

Or is he just asking to get his job back?

We have no idea. But what we do know now is that great power and great responsibility has to be backed up ... by great prayer.

According to israellycool, this photo was likely taken on Purim, a holiday which incorporates the custom of costumes and masks.
