Georgia Cop Becomes Iron Man to Make Sick Kids Smile

We all know that Tony Stark is Iron Man, but the Golden Avenger might have acquired a new alter-ego in the form of Madison, Georgia-based Police Officer William Brewer.

In his spare time, Brewer dons his own armored suit, funded in part from public donations to his GoFundMe.com page, to brighten the day of children attending his local hospital.

Brewer described his decision to become his own version of Iron Man in an interview in The Morgan County Citizen, saying: “[I thought] what is something I can do to put a smile on a child’s face? What is something that will get their mind off the disease they are fighting? One thought came to mind… A super hero. Every child has a favorite super hero they look up to or admire.”

His recent rounds were even filmed by local Georgia news station Fox 5.

It seems you don’t necessarily need great power to make a great difference, sometimes you just need the right costume.

Robert Downey Jr. is set to return as Tony Stark/Iron Man alongside Tom Holland in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which is due to hit cinemas on July 7, 2017.
