Look out! Here comes the SpiderMable!
Nearly two years after a fierce battle with leukemia – Edmonton’s favourite webslinger is swinging into Fort McMurray.
Seven-year-old Mable Tooke became a Spiderman fan while reading the comics as she underwent treatment after her 2013 diagnosis.
On September 28th of 2015, Edmonton conducted a plan – involving the real Spiderman as her sidekick – to help Mable live her dream of being a superhero for the day.
SpiderMable tells Mix News the story of her superhero origins.
“I had gotten cancer and the Children’s Wish Foundation helped me out by granting my wish. That wish was to fight crime with Spiderman for the day. Of course, it went way overboard and that’s how SpiderMable was born.”
SpiderMable is in Fort McMurray to support the Cycle Across Canada which is raising money for the Children’s Wish Foundation.
When Edmonton came together to grant her wish, they gave SpiderMable a daunting mission – to save former Edmonton Oilers captain Andrew Ference from the evil clutches of Mysterio.
“That was also pretty cool,” Mable laughed. “I got to save a grown man from a supervillain.”
But how does a big hockey player manage to get caught by a supervillain?
“I believe he was driving to his practice and then he just got swiped up.”
Then SpiderMable, with the help of Spiderman – captured the dastardly Mysterio and our hearts.
With a superhero mindset – Mable is hoping to help pay it forward by continuing to work with the Children’s Wish Foundation to help other kids wishes become a reality.
After having her wish granted – Mable says it’s her goal to make sure other kids have the same opportunities so they can live their dreams as well.
She also has a message for any criminals out there:
