Iron Man robs bank, Spider-Man steals $6,000. Who's next?

First Spider-Man, now Iron Man?

We’re in for real trouble if the Incredible Hulk turns on us.

For the second time in a week, authorities are looking for a masked superhero that has robbed citizens of their hard-earned dollars.

According to the pictures released by the FBI, a man donning an Iron Man mask robbed a Citibank in San Clemente on May 2.

Absent his arsenal of shoulder-mounted missiles and repulsar rays in his palms, the robber instead used a handgun about 1:30 p.m. to order bank customers and employees against a wall.

The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash and escaped in a white pickup truck. KTLA-TV reported there may have been a getaway driver. No word on if it was War Machine.

On April 29, a man in a Spider-Man costume stole $6,000 from a tour operator on Hollywood Boulevard.
