Sup Travellers?! I hope you have your walking shoes and your tissues ready because this story is going to take you on a FEELS TRIP.

Brayden Denton is a 5 year old boy from Indiana who is obsessed with superheroes. His favorite superhero of all time is Spider-Man. 

"He was a huge Spider-Man fan," said Staci Denton, Brayden's mother. "He had to quit just liking Spider-Man because he had all the toys. So really he liked every superhero."

But over a year ago, Brayden was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer called DIPG tragically cutting his superhero love affair short. On May 8 2014 Brayden succumbed to his disease. Before he died he was able to see the new Spider-Man movie fulfilling one of his dying wishes.

On the day of the funeral Brayden's pallbearers were dressed as Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Thor, The Hulk, and Iron Man. His mother was the one who had the idea to have the pallbearers dress as characters from the Marvel and DC universes.

"He could care less about people being in a suits, ties and dresses. He was a 5-year-old boy. That’s not what he thought was neat. He loved looking at superhero T-shirts." Mrs Denton said.

The picture, which was posted to Facebook, was shared widely across social media.

Brayden’s uncle Cory Denton, who was dressed as Thor, said: ‘It was hard, but I did it for him. We went to the Superman movie with him and he was dressed up as Superman."

There wasn't much that the family could have done to save Brayden. The battle against Cancer is not an easy one to fight, even for the mightiest heroes. Rest in peace Brayden. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
