This brother wanted some drugs! He’s your friendly neighborhood Mr. Opioid Addict.

A thief dressed like Spider-Man tried to rob an East Harlem pharmacy, but thwip-ed out the door empty-handed when a pharmacist refused to comply with his not so-heroic demands.

The man’s face was partially covered by a red-and-blue hoodie designed to look like Spider-Man’s famed costume. He entered East Harlem Pharmacy on Second Ave. near E. 122nd St. at about 10:15 a.m. Monday, jumped over the counter and pulled a box cutter.

He demanded the store’s supply of Percocet, oxycodone, Xanax and other prescription painkillers, officials said.

The 30-year-old pharmacist refused and the suspect ran off, harming no one.

Besides the hard-to-miss hoodie, the thief was wearing a ski cap and a long brown coat, as if he were a Marvel comic character traveling incognito.

Cops from the 25th Precinct released a wanted poster of the wannabe wall-crawler on Thursday, saying cops are “on the lookout for any subjects wearing such attire.”
