Who says the Orange Line isn't hip?

Spider-Man on the Orange Line

Carla Osberg looked up to see Spider-Man just hanging out on the Orange Line as it hurtled between Back Bay and Stony Brook this evening. And you thought that was the kind of hipster thing that only the Green and Red lines got to see. The Orange Line has certainly come far from its naked-guy days.

Interview with the man behind the mask.

if I *wanted to*.

No: I'm simply the kind of unassuming, non-showboating Orange Line rider that doesn't like to call attention to himself. I also let people off the train before I get on, and do not cavort and laugh and sing the latest pop songs overloudly with my friends on the night's last train, even when we are drunk. Okay, if it's the last train, we are almost certainly drunk, but that just underscores my point.

No, no, no, don't praise me: I'm just trying to be a solid, extremely humble paragon of peerless citizenship. I would fiercely resist any attempt to body-cast me for a bronze statue at Chinatown Station.

(Also, I did not have the good fortune to be bitten by a radioactive spider when I was a teen.)

To himself and those around him

Doesn't look like rush hour, and he has multiple points of contact.

(looks at spiderconstructors working on building across the street)

So says the biggest Fourth Point of Contact Around.

It's only dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. I've practiced stuff like this for years and I also train in parkour, so im not much danger to myself, and I've got pretty good control of my body as well as spacial familiarity, so it's unlikely that I'll hurt anyone unless they try to get hurt. I appreciate your concern, however.

I just think he’s brave for trusting that strap to hold his weight

He is not that big of a guy and I can attest those straps HOLD. I am very tall, very broad and have held on to one of those even as a car came to screeching halt and it held even though I was caught off guard and all I was holding was the strap. I am not sure what their weight designation is but I was impressed.

I Spotted Spiderman/Jason on Spring St. in West Roxbury just the other day. Brought a smile and a really good vibe to us all just by being there.

Thanks Spidey/Jason

Does anyone remember the dude who used to ride the Orange Line all the time with a boombox, wearing a t-shirt and nothing but transparent tights, so you could see his junk all mashed up against the tights? I wonder whatever happened to that guy.

...DJ Nite Train? Short cutoffs, yes, tights, I've never seen it. I haven't seen him in a long time, but he is a local treasure of Keytar Bear caliber.

No no, I loved DJ Nite Train when I used to see him around. What happened to HIM?

But he's not who I meant. The guy I"m talking about was basically naked from the waist down.

He’s still around! Head over to the new Looney zunes Records location on Harvard st in Allston (where store 54 used to be). He works- and DJs- there!

The sticky substance on the seats and poles on the orange line.

Glad to see that the local neighborhood Spiderman is bringing so much joy, fun and laughter, and smiles to people. It's great!

I'm pretty sure people's hands are just as dirty as their feet. If not worse...

Whatever was on those hand straps is now on his feet.

Not only is he / it Man Spreading on the handlebars, but he / it probably is leaving their backpack where someone could be sitting.

Fun fact: if someone wants to sit, i get down so that person can sit, obviously I'm not going to do it while people are trying to sit down...
