Superman and Batman took on New York’s Finest last night in an epic Crossroads of the World battle that left the Caped Crusader in cuffs.
Stunned Times Square tourists and office workers watched agog as cops struggled to subdue Clark Kent’s alter ego without kryptonite.
“The Man of Steel didn’t go down with just two officers, it took seven officers!” witness Ryan McCormick said. “He was putting up a good fight. Little kids were like, ‘Mommy, it’s Superman!’ ”
If that wasn’t weird enough, McCormick turned and saw the Dark Knight handcuffed to a chair like a common villain.
“As this was happening, someone is like, ‘It’s Batman!’ I turn around and there’s Batman in handcuffs,” he said.
Superman, aka Maksim Katsnelson, 23, of The Bronx, was arrested and charged with assault and resisting arrested, police said, accusing him of punching a female officer in the face while she was trying to subdue him.
The incident occurred when cops approached Katsnelson, who was panhandling, and asked him for ID.
When Katsnelson said he didn’t have any ID, cops continued to ask him questions, sources said.
That’s when Katsnelson punched the female officer, sources said.
“He freaked out and punched the girl cop in the face,” Batman said later.
