Ever since Kick-Ass came out back in 2010, we’ve seen a proliferation of “local superheroes,” people who suit up in spandex and set out to protect the cities they live in.

Uproxx points us to the latest case study in this phenomenon: a guy in Norfolk, Virginia who wears a Spider-Man-inspired suit and refers to himself as The Black Widow…

The newscaster seems really into this story, going as far as to extend Black Widow’s baton on camera. It makes us wonder… since the Black Widow operates under a secret identity and we don’t ever see the costumed man in the same shot as the newscaster, what if — you ready for this? — the newscaster IS the Black Widow?

What better way to spread the word of your good deeds than to use your access to a local audience to do so?
