Deadpool isn’t particularly known for being a nice guy, but you know who is? Ryan Reynolds, the star of the upcoming Deadpool solo movie. And when he’s not busy filming action-packed scenes and mouthing off behind that mask, he’s taking time out to be a real-life hero, making one little Deadpool fan’s wish come true.

Reynolds paid a visit to Tony Acevedo, a young boy who’s currently fighting a very heroic battle all his own with Hodgkin’s disease. The Make-a-Wish foundation teamed up with Reynolds to grant his wish: to spend the day with his favorite comic book character, the Merc With a Mouth. Reynolds took to Instagram to document the occasion:

Not only did Acevedo get to hang with Reynolds, he also got to dress up like his hero and throw a few punches around. Seriously, if this isn’t enough to make your heart melt, then you should probably seek medical attention. Of course, Reynolds couldn’t keep from adding a bit of Deadpool’s signature humor to the Instagram post, ending it with “Tony’s next fight is with Hodgkin’s Disease. Hodgkin’s Disease best be wearing its brown pants.”

If you need a few more warm and fuzzy feelings today, may I direct you to Chris Evans and Chris Pratt’s recent visit to a children’s hospital? These superheroes really are using their powers for good.
