Boy With Cystic Fibrosis Saves the Day as Honorary Avenger
Entertainment| | By Margo Gothelf
Move over Iron Man, Iron Boy is here to save the day! Domenic Pace, a nine-year-old boy from Australia who has cystic fibrosis, has always dreamed of becoming a superhero. With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the New South Wales Police, he was able to make his dream come true.
The day started when Pace received a call from NSW Chief of Police Andrew Scipione asking for some help after Iron Man’s arch enemy Ultron “kidnapped” reporter Hope Joy. With the help of Captain Rhodes, Pace’s brother Joseph, Iron Boy set out on his mission. Parts of Sydney were shut down in order to help Iron Boy complete his task as he was whisked away by helicopters and speedboats. After the successful rescue of Joy from the Sydney Opera House, Iron Boy jumped on to a police speedboat to complete his mission. Iron Boy then took part in a dangerous battle with Ultron on the steps of the Sydney’s Opera House. Iron Boy came out of the fight victorious and was awarded the Commissioner’s Award for Gallantry for his actions. Pace said it was “awesome” hearing from Tony Stark. And Pace’s feelings on bad guys? “They think they’re so awesome, but they’re not.”
