Men disguised as Iron Man and the Hulk were recently arrested for break-ins in the province of Neuquén. The criminals were also accused of other crimes in the area while dressed in various other costumes such as police and oil workers, according to local press.

The night that they were finally caught, police were called to the scene by a neighbor who became aware of their suspicious prowling around the neighborhood. Subtlety has never been a strong suit for either the Hulk or Iron Man, and that night didn’t prove any different.

The delinquents subsequently attempted to flee but were detained easily, which we can only imagine took a big toll on Iron Man’s ego. Unfortunately these particular Marvel Comics superheroes weren’t created with the power of flight either, so a Superman costume could’ve been more handy in hindsight.

When the police searched them, they found a homemade fashioned gun, handcuffs, a butcher’s knife and both a police and oilman’s hat for future disguises. They were charged for the possession of weapons and all other potentially connected crimes are being investigated.
