Avengers fan, 11, dies after Chris Evans and more fulfill his last wish
A young Avengers superfan has died, but not before his dying wish was fulfilled by his idols.
Emilio Pachon passed away this Wednesday after suffering from Neurofibromatosis type I.
In his last days, Fox News journalist Shannon Bream tweeted that the 11-year-old’s dying wish was to hear from one of the Avengers before he died. The tweet went viral and resulted in an outpouring of love and support from the superheroes he admired.
Marvel superheroes such as Chris Evans, Ryan Reynolds, and Jeremy Renner, offered to speak to the child, and they did. Prior to Emilio’s death, Chloe Bennet, who plays Daisy Johnson on the ABC show Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also reached out and asked for the little boy’s name. In addition, Zachary Levi, who played the DC Comics hero Shazam, as well as Marvel’s Frandral in several of the Thor films offered to help, too. Paul Bettany, who played Vision in Captain America: Civil War and in Avengers: Age of Ultron, reached out, as well.
