A man dressed as Spider-Man got into a fight with another man who was allegedly harassing the Marvel character and other costumed heroes in New York City (video below).

A bystander, Geoff Goldberg, filmed Spider-Man punching and wrestling the heckler in Times Square, notes DNAinfo.

The battle occurred in front of a Toys "R" Us store as several young people cheered on the fight and filmed it with their cell phones.

Spider-Man, who identified himself as Josh, told the New York Post: “He said a lot of racist s---. He said, ‘You Muslims go back to your country, you’re gonna blow up Times Square.'"

“He’s been doing this on and off for almost a year,” Spider-Man/Josh added.
