Electron Boy takes off

With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a Seattle-area boy battling a rare form of cancer saved the Pacific Northwest from evil last spring. (Personally, I was very grateful--I'm a huge Seattle Sounders fan, but those guys are prime supervillain bait.)

Eight months later, 14-year-old Erik Martin (a.k.a. "Electron Boy") is starring in his own 10-page-long comic created by a group of independent comic creators who wrote, drew and inked the panels in their spare time. According to the Seattle Times, the plot features "dark matter, a series of microscopic wormholes, the Space Needle, Experience Music Project, the potential destruction of planet Earth and Jimi Hendrix".
