Spider-Man World Record Attempt at US Airways Center, 3/5/15

1 of 34
Dozens of Valley residents dressed as famed Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man and massed outside of the US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix on Thursday, March 5. The stunt coincided with coincided with the opening night of "Marvel Universe LIVE!" at the arena and was an attempt to set a world record for the largest number of costumed Spider-Men in one spot at one time.

While organizers admittedly fell more than a little bit short of breaking the record (which officially stands at 398 people), those who came dressed as the famed web-slinger, including numerous families and kids, certainly had a great time.
