Real Spider-Man: Shaun Emerson Flies With Rickshaw

New York's had it's fair share of superheroes as of late, but now there's one that can actually fly. Sort of.

Shaun Emerson, a "Miami transplant" to New York has been dressing up as Spider-Man and using a rickshaw to propel himself through the air around town. He's quickly become New Yorkers' friendly neighborhood Spider-Man with his gravity-defying antics, running along walls and twirling through the air.

After a pedicab-taxicab fight was recently caught on tape, Emerson's acrobats may help make rickshaws New Yorkers' new favorite mode of transportation.
