The superheroes delivered sweets to families across the town on Halloween and are now considering putting their super powers to good use for the popular lights night on Friday November 25.

What began as a small idea posted on a Facebook forum turned into a massive success as the intrepid team visited more than 25 children from more than 15 addresses.

Dan Martin who posted the idea and was Marvel superhero Dead Pool said they had plenty of sweets left over so it seemed like a good plan.

“Halloween was a success,” he said. “The response over Facebook was overwhelming with parents’ photos of us with their children pingging up all through the night.
