      Marvel is awesome!!!! Helping kids have idols and inspiration. Especially, this hearing impaired boy who informed his mom one day that he would no longer wear his "blue ear" because none of the super heroes had to. Aaaaw!!! "Hawkeye, one of the famous Avengers superheroes, lost 80 percent of his hearing and now has to wear hearing aids. But that's not all Marvel did. They went beyond that and sent over a new idea for a superhero which they call "The Blue Ear."

    • Eric Hostetler

      A 4-year-old boy from Salem, NH named was born with a genetic disorder which causes significant hearing loss. He wears a special hearing aid that he nicknamed his "Blue Ear." One morning before school he refused to wear it. Why? Because superheroes don't have to wear. An e-mail was sent Marvel Comics. They found the answer she was looking for: "Hawkeye lost 80 percent of his hearing and now has to wear hearing aids." In addition they went beyond that and created a new superhero "The Blue Ear."
