Electron Boy saves the day!

by

13-year old Erik Martin woke up on  Thurday morning to a phone call from Spiderman – instead of going to school, his services were needed to complete a very important mission.  After changing into his superhero clothes, Erik became Electron Boy.  He grabbed his lightsaber, jumped into his DeLorean (driven by Moonshine Maid) and rushed off to rescue the Seattle Sounders, imprisoned in their locker room at Qwest Field by none other than supervillans Dr. Dark and Blackout Boy. 

This is not an elaborate superhero movie – this, along with hundreds of volunteers and the city of Seattle, was Erik’s wish – made possible through the regional chapter of the Make a Wish Foundation.  An amazing tale of a city with a big heart and a kid with an even bigger imagination.

Thank you Seattle and thank you Erik!
