Spider-Man Swings By Boston Children’s

He shared crime-fighting tips and made sure the windows were clean.

When patients at Boston Children’s Hospital opened their blinds Thursday, their usual view was obstructed—by a superhero.

Spider-Man stopped by the hospital to take part in the annual summer tradition of showing off his Spidey senses and keeping the windows clean. Spidey took time to meet with patients and families, and visited the new James Mandell Building’s enclosed “healing garden.”

Below, some photos from the day. (We’re loving that these appearances are now a regular thing.)
