Many have heard of the amazing story of Miles Scott, a child who was suffering from cancer.

The very next day, the San Francisco Chronicle even reported on the front page that Batkid had saved the city. Due to this charade, the Batkid has influenced many people all over the world. There is even a documentary about him on Netflix and a new trend to don cancer patients and other special needs children in superhero capes that can be easily gotten from sites like just to make them feel special and great.

Yano is a child who has been battling cancer for over 7 years. When the Make-a-Wish Foundation finally caught up with Yano to give him the dream he had always wanted, he simply wanted to be a superhero for a day—his favorite being the brilliantly masked and hilarious vigilante Deadpool.

WGN reported that over 20 different agencies, including law enforcement, came together to help accomplish his superhero duties. Yano had the time of his life defeating the likes of Bane and other infamous criminals with his sword fighting and bow shooting skills—with, of course, the help of the Green Lantern and other novelties.

In the end, he victoriously recovered the stolen crown jewel.

Kevin the Shooting Star

At age three, Kevin’s parents learned that he was going to have to fight the biggest battle of his young life: 3 Hodgkins disease. By the time that he was 11-years-old, Kevin was wishing that he could have superpowers and even fly.

With the help of Make-a-Wish and an advertising agency, a film was created and Kevin became a superhero: the Shooting Star. In it, he was given the super powers that he had always dreamed about as his character was made to defeat Lord Valkyrie and his henchmen.
