Receiving his wish in April to be a superhero, Erik passed this week at the age of 14
13-yr-old Erik of Bellevue, who longs to have superhero powers, will be transformed into his very own comic book character on World Wish Day, April 29. In real life he was Erik Martin, a boy with a constellation of severe health problems and a rare form of cancer. But in his imagination he was Electron Boy, a superhero who saved Seattle from the forces of darkness and evil one spring day last year.
Erik died Friday at home. He was 14.
