He had help from Robin, of course...who says he was stopped in his tracks when police threatened to shoot him.

It's not the first time the group of protestors have struck.
Just a few days ago, a man dressed as Spiderman scaled the 400 foot high London Eye ferris wheel.
Four months ago they hurled condoms filled with purple flour at Prime Minister Tony Blair.
They're demonstrating for more rights for fathers to see their children in cases of divorce or separation.

JOLLY (SPIDERMAN) ANSWER: NOBODY KNEW WHO WE WERE FOUR MONTHS AGO...WHO JUSTICE FOR FATHERS ARE.
AFTER REACHING HIS GOAL OF MAKING BRITAIN'S EVENING NEWS, BATMAN CLIMBED DOWN...AND INTO THE HANDS OF WAITING POLICE.
And there's no denying that the demonstrations have had their desired effect of generating publicity...but it's done more to highlight the lax security around the Queen and the Prime Minister...
