Real life imitates comics, probably makes Joe Simon and Jack Kirby proud

The NY Post is reporting that 20-year-old Kevin Crawford allegedly, decked out in a skull mask that was colored red, walked into a Brooklyn bank last week and demanded $4,000 from the teller. He managed to make off with twice that, but was followed by a crowd and soon stopped by by Borough Park Shomrim volunteers — unarmed civilians set up by the Hasidic communities of NYC — until the police arrived.

While we can’t say if Crawford was paying deliberate tribute to the Red Skull, that villainous arch-nemesis of Captain America, or he was just frat-boy-psyched about the mask, we will say that whenever something Nazi-related can be struck down by those of Jewish origins, it’s always a good day.
