This could bring a tear to a glass eye...

As you may know, we love our comic book hero films here in JOE Towers but we prefer to see some real-life heroes in action.

That's why we love this story about the effort that Mike Wilson, a free-runner from Southampton, made to to ensure that his son Jayden’s fifth birthday party was one that he would never forget.

Late last year, Jayden was diagnosed with a brain tumour and doctors said that he has only one year left to live. Take a look as Mike stops by in his custom Spider-Man suit so he could surprise his son with a visit from his favourite superhero.

This is just wonderful.
