Stop what you’re doing and go read this account of the city of Seattle making a wish come true for 13-year-old Erik Martin. Martin is dying of liver cancer and his one wish was to become his superhero alter-ego, Electron Boy.
I’m pretty sure your cynical heart will melt at the ingenuity that led to Electron Boy saving the Seattle Sounders soccer team, battling his nemesis at the Space Needle and how pretty much an entire city (highways were shutdown, companies closed to participate, etc.) made his one dream come true.
Here’s hoping Electron Boy is able to defeat his liver cancer — his true nemesis.
