Domenic is nine years old. Domenic is currently battle cystic fybrosis. But today, thanks the Make A Wish Foundation and the NSW Police, Domenic will become Iron Man -- or in this case Iron Boy -- for a day and save the city of Sydney from the forces of evil.

Seriously. Shit is going down. Make A Wish reporter Hope Joy has been kidnapped and there are reports that Ultron is in the area.
Iron Boy. We need your help.
Thankfully, it appears as though he has answered the call. Here he is receiving a briefing from NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione at police headquarters in Parramatta

Reports state that Iron Boy is already suited up and ready to go. Apparently Hope Joy is being held captive on an island. Only Iron Boy can save her now...

Sydney needs you Iron Boy!
This is a beautiful thing. When asked what he wanted his super power to be, Domenic replied to "heal people".
Iron Boy will be heading to the Sydney Opera House at 1.30pm. Hopefully Ultron is going to go down. If you're in the area I highly recommend heading down there to cheer him on.
I believe in you Iron Boy!
