Turns out Spider-Man's a Cubs fan (and a lot shorter than we remember)

You'd think one of New York's finest superheroes would bleed Mets or Yankees blue. Nope, Spider-Man's a Cubs fan.

Spidey (out of respect for heroes everywhere, we can't reveal his secret identity) was spotted at the Cubs-Angels game at Angel Stadium wearing Cubbie blue on Wednesday alongside his mother, Kelly Verkaik.

"We're originally from Chicago, but we moved out to Anaheim about five years ago," Verkaik said. "My grandmother's ashes are actually scattered in the outfield at Wrigley Field."

We can't help but think, though - Spidey looks much shorter in person.
