Make-A-Wish Foundation of America

Make-A-Wish Foundation of America grants the wishes of children. They do it only for children with life-threatening medical conditions, every year they grant more than 300 wishes.

This time they turned a boy, Erik Martin, who’s having a liver cancer, into a superhero, namely, Electron Boy. 13-year-old boy was always dreaming of becoming a superhero and finally his dream came true. Hundreds volunteers participated in this event. Electron Boy had to fight against Dr. Dark and Blackout Boy to protect the people from Seattle and Bellevue.

Spider-Man called him and told about evil plans of Dr. Dark. All day long Electron Boy drove his DeLorean from one place to another, doing good deeds and fighting against evil Dr. Dark. It was Electron boy who won the battle! Erik said that it was the best day of his life.

Yes, we understand, you like mocking Christians, because it's what the cool kids do, but seriously, even here? Uneducated atheists, they don't really know about this evolution thing, but they sure do know a lot of zombie Jesus jokes!
