Is his spider sense tingling, or is he is just really, really happy to see you?

The question is now moot, since this statue of Spider Man sporting an erection has been removed from the side of a shopping center in Busan, South Korea due to complaints, according to Kotaku

The above images are via artist Eunsuk Yoo's Facebook page. 

After the statue had been there for more than a year, Yoo was told he'd need to either change or take down the sculpture, which was in plain view of the shopping center's playground area. Yoo decided to take it down.

He explained why he'd given Spider Man a boner on his Facebook page, which was translated by Kotaku:

"I am the artist who made this piece. My reason for it was that I wanted apply the natural physical phenomenon to a superhero depict whats's natural in the morning without lies and superficial-ness in a comical way."
