Thursday was shaping up to be just another school day for 13-year-old Erik Martin, but then something extraordinary happened: Spider-Man called.
Spider-Man happens to be one of the few people who knows that Erik, too, has a secret identity -- he's Electron Boy, a superhero who fights the powers of evil with light.
There's a great article over at the Seattle Times explaining all the feats Electron Boy accomplished throughout the day and everyone who was involved. It was really heartwarming and I encourage you all to read it provided you're cool crying at work (take a laptop into a bathroom stall if you're really worried about it). But seriously: great job Electron Boy, we're rooting for you.
Thanks to Jake and Paul, who, okay one of you is gonna have to hold me.
