Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool. I wasn't expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile... and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed. Tony's next fight is with Hodgkin's Disease. Hodgkin's Disease best be wearing its brown pants. Huge thanks to @makeawishamerica
When Deadpool isn’t making crude and hilarious Mother’s Day jokes, he’s actually doing a lot of good. Ryan Reynolds became a real-life superhero as he welcomed a very brave young man on to the set of the upcoming Deadpool movie. The heartwarming moment came when Tony Acevedo, a young boy battling cancer, put on the actual iconic red and black Deadpool mask and gloves thanks to Make-A-Wish. Acevedo, who has Hodgkin’s lymphoma, visited the set of the Marvel movie in Vancouver and quickly transformed to the Merc with a Mouth himself.

This continues the trend of Hollywood superheroes delighting young fans. A few months ago, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord and Chris Evans visited Christopher’s Haven children’s hospital in Boston.
Let’s all hope that Deadpool’s miraculous healing powers work their magic on young Tony.
