The symbol of Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests has been the umbrella, which activists have used as art as well as to defend themselves against tear gas and clashes with police.

But now it seems superheros are joining their crusade when Spider-Man popped up.

Known for having the power to heal himself, he appeared to tend to a man's head injury in the Mongkok district.

And he even donned his own yellow umbrella in support of Occupy Central.

The protesters plan to hold a vote on government proposals they rejected earlier in the week as their sit in enters its fifth week.
