Cosplay superheroes came to the rescue of a devastated seven-year-old boy from Texas after only one friend showed up to his birthday party.
Houston boy Max was heartbroken when just one of his 30 invited friends showed up to his birthday bash on June 30, leading his mom Susann to write a letter to her local radio talk show to ask them to remind parents to RSVP.
But she never expected the 94.5FM station to read the letter on air and that members of Houston Cosplay for Charity would overhear the broadcast.
Inspired to help Max, the cosplay volunteers suited up in their Deadpool and Wonder Woman garb and launched a mission to throw Max a do-over party he’d never forget.

Brandi Coatsworth, who plays Wonder Woman, reached out to Susann in July after hearing her letter read over the radio and the two started to plan Max a new birthday party, according to Chron.
‘Anyone who knows Max and his story was just heartbroken for him. He’s such a great, kind kid that it’s hard to hear something like that happened. When [the radio show] forwarded Brandi’s email, I was floored. I had no idea something like that would or could happen,’ mom Susann said on the surprise.
Trampoline park Urban Air, where Max’s original party took place, even agreed to donate a second party package for the seven year old.
On July 29 Max celebrated a second birthday party that couldn’t have been more different than the original with 40 party guests, including some kids who couldn’t make it to the first one, and more than a dozen superheroes and movie characters including Captain America, Batman, Catwoman and Tinkerbell.
