If you're in need of a truly touching story to end the work week, and if you're okay with watching heart-warming videos that will emotionally wreck you, then prepare yourself to get hit .

Domenic Pace, a nine-year-old boy with cystic fibrosis, was given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to live out his dream of becoming Iron Boy.


The day, which took about three months to prepare, involved Domenic (hereby known as Iron Boy) working alongside the New South Wales Police Force to rescue Make-A-Wish Foundation's reporter, Hope Joy, and defeat Ultron and his evil henchmen.

To start the day off, Iron Boy was whisked off to Police Headquarters in a helicopter where he received an urgent message from NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione.

From there, he was taken to Clark Island where he rescued Hope Joy from Ultron's henchmen before facing Ultron himself in a showdown outside of Sydney's Opera House, defeating him as he was cheered on by a huge crowd.


Following his victory, Iron Boy received the Medal of Valour from Commissioner Scipione, who said:

Sometimes you need to call in a Super Hero. And we called in a special Super Hero today. Iron Boy, stepping up to help our great city the way you did, you exhibited bravery of the highest order.

Meanwhile, Iron Boy had some words of his own for the defeated villains:

Those henchmen, they think they are so awesome when they're not. Stay out of town, dude.

To make the day even more special, Iron Boy received a message from Iron Man himself, AKA Tony Stark, congratulating him on his great work and declaring Iron Boy an honorary member of The Avengers.

You can catch Iron Boy in action below, but be warned, side effects include huge grins and inevitable tears of joy.
