LOOK: Friendly neighborhood Spiderman helps out in Tarlac during the lockdown

“With great power comes great responsibility,” indeed!

Every child knows him—even parents and grandparents have an idea on who he is! We’re talking about our friendly neighborhood Spiderman, the Marvel superhero who got bitten by a spider and suddenly developed “spidey senses.” He then sets out to protect his quaint little town in New York by doing good deeds, big or small, whenever he can.

This is exactly what Estefred Cordero, Jr. from Victoria, Tarlac wanted to embody, especially during the COVID-19 crisis in the country. He noticed that some of his neighbors lost their livelihoods due to the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon island. That’s when he thought of helping out in a way he can.

Cordero decided to go around his town and give free food to his neighbors while wearing a full Spiderman costume. He says that the costume was a huge hit with kids, as they all knew who Spiderman was.

Cordero isn’t the first one to dress up as a superhero during the enhanced community quarantine. Cosplayer Jon Gani previously went out to buy goods at a market in Sampaloc, Manila, also wearing a Spiderman costume. Gani says it’s his “full gear” to protect himself from the virus.

Meanwhile, a food delivery rider wore a Black Panther costume to serve as his personal protective equipment (PPE) while at work. A fellow delivery rider saw his colleague while lining up to order his customers food. 

However, we should remember that everyone working amid this pandemic—health workers, security guards, delivery riders, grocery personnel—are all heroes!
