Superman and Batman fought the law; the law won

It seems the World’s Finest are no match for New York‘s Finest.

Putting the Daily Planet to shame, the New York Post reports in an “exclusive” that New York City police took down Batman and Superman yesterday in Times Square.

Make that Frank Frisoli and Maksim Katsnelson, who were dressed as two-thirds of DC Comics’ Trinity.

It seems Katsnelson (Superman) may have been panhandling. When approached by police, he allegedly hit a female officer in the face. One witness says that it took seven officers to take down the Last Son of Krytpon — er, I mean The Bronx.

The Caped Crusader, Frisoli, was handcuffed and then released because he hadn’t punched an officer in the face, I guess. The Maine resident said the Not-So-Dynamic Duo had dressed up for a laugh.

Unfortunately, they didn’t have the required license to perform in costume in public. Wait, a license? Has the Superhuman Registration Act finally spilled over from the Marvel Universe?

Damn you, Tony Stark! Damn you!
