This Irish three-year-old nominated Spiderman for the ice bucket challenge... and Spidey stepped up

Now THAT is a superhero.

ON FRIDAY, WE published a frankly adorable video of three-year-old Elijah O Riain doing the ice bucket challenge.

Before taking the challenge, Elijah nominated his mate Lucia, rock superstar Bono… and Spiderman.

Cork man John Hourihan saw the video, and decided to make things happen. So he tweeted it at Dan Slott – the artist who writes The Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics.

It didn’t take long for Spidey to step up to the plate.

Slott tweeted this image in reply. It must have been quite a bucket.

Now THAT’S what we call a superhero. Fair play Spidey, fair play.

The question is: where’s Bono’s?
