This is a cute story...

We're happy to announce that the folks at Marvel Comics, the company that brings us our favorite superheroes like Spiderman, Ironman and The Avengers, are indeed superheroes themselves! In Salem, New Hampshire, 4-year-old Anthony Smith cannot hear out of his right ear and suffers from hearing loss in his other ear. However, the youngster refuses to wear his hearing aid telling his mother that superheroes don't wear hearing aids. So his mom e-mailed Marvel Comics looking for examples of superheroes who suffer from hearing loss. Marvel responded with the image of a superhero known as Hawkeye, a superhero who lost 80-percent of his hearing and wears hearing aids. But they didn't stop there. They later sent Anthony a drawing of a new superhero, "Blue Ear." The character is named after Anthony's hearing aid, which he and his mother have always called blue ear. Now Anthony's happy to wear his hearing aid and once again, America is safe to face another day! (FOX News)
