The Seattle Times has a story about a boy with cancer becoming a super hero for a day.
Courtesy of the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Electron Boy was whisked from his home in a DeLorean by Lightning Lad and Moonshine Maid. A 20-officer motorcade cleared highways as Electron Boy sped to Qwest Field to rescue the Seattle Sounders soccer team — which was locked in its locker room by Dr. Dark and Blackout Boy. Afterward, Dr. Dark appeared on the Jumbotron, foolishly revealing his evil plans, as villains always do. Electron Boy then sped to Puget Sound Electric’s headquarters to save an employee from a bucket truck and foil Dr. Dark’s plans to cut electricity to the entire city as a crowd of adoring Electron Boy fans cheered.
Here is the Sounders’ regular sportcast covering the incident. Beautiful quotes on the part of the soccer players…
Here’s footage of the DeLorean pulling up to Electron Boy’s home. It’s a mixture of shyness and surprise.
Here are 22 photos from the Seattle Times.
