JACKSON HEIGHTS — A neighborhood mural was redone last month and now features the borough's most famous superhero.

The "Queens Is The Future" mural on a handball court at I.S. 145 at Northern Boulevard and 80th Street was redone as part of a visit from the cast and crew of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," students said.

The mural now shows Spider-Man lifting a subway car, filled with students, as it rides next to the Statue of Liberty. There's also a bright orange and yellow sun, all within the original frame of the mural.

The original mural was designed in 2007 by Joshua Frankel and Eve Biddle, according to the artists. It was commissioned by NY Cares, they said.

The original artists did not immediately respond to an email for comment. A message left for the school was not returned.
