Make-A-Wish Australia Helps Sick Boy Become A Superhero For A Day

"Iron Boy, we need your help."

On Thursday, a 9-year-old boy fulfilled his dream of becoming a superhero. With some help from the New South Wales Police and Make-A-Wish Australia, Domenic Pace, who has cystic fibrosis, carried out a "vital rescue mission."

According to a press release from the NSW Police,


From there, Pace transformed into Iron Boy.

The police escorted Pace by boat and car to Clark Island, where he defeated one of the villain Ultron's henchmen before saving Hope Joy. 

Along the way, his adventure was being documented on social media using the hashtag #IronBoyAU.

But Iron Boy's was far from over once he saved Hope Joy.

After the daring rescue, Pace went to the Sydney Opera House, where he encountered Ultron and a very large crowd of people waiting to see him. Several news outlets were also present and added to the excitement of the day.

And to make things even more exciting for Pace, not only was he encouraged by all of the people who came out to see him at the Sydney Opera House, but he received a Medal of Valor from the NSW Police commissioner. 

He also received several congratulatory messages from several very important people, including the one and only Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., who named him an honorary member of the Avengers.

All in a day's work.
