This is pretty awesome. The Make-a-Wish folks really do some great work. In this one, there’s superhero costumes, a police escort, a trapped soccer team at Qwest Field, and even a Delorean for a boy who wanted to be a superhero for a day.
The Seattle Times reports:
Thursday was shaping up to be just another school day for 13-year-old Erik Martin, but then something extraordinary happened: Spider-Man called.
Spider-Man happens to be one of the few people who knows that Erik, too, has a secret identity — he’s Electron Boy, a superhero who fights the powers of evil with light.
And Spider-Man needed Erik’s help.
Erik, who is living with liver cancer, has always wanted to be a superhero. On Thursday, the regional chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted him that wish with an elaborate event that involved hundreds of volunteers in Bellevue and Seattle.
You can read the rest here how Electron Boy saved the day by freeing the Seattle Sounders from the evil clutches of “Dr. Dark” and “Blackout Boy” in a locker room at Qwest Field at the Seattle Times.
And there some video taken at the event that’s a little shaky but still pretty great outside Qwest Field.
