Ahh, the tragic downfall of another superhero…or just the story of another loon.

36-year-old David Hobbs was arrested early Monday morning, after attempting to break into a shed in the backyard of a home in Clarksdale. Fortunately, the homeowner had an alarm, and he managed to hold Hobbs at gunpoint until cops arrived.

I guess to protect his identity, Hobbs was dressed as Captain America, complete with mask and fully body muscle suit, and, oddly, fairy wings. He was probably hoping they would help him fly away after the burglary.

Hobbs is now locked up in Coahoma County jail on $25,000 bond.
