The actors that suits up as heroes in the movies, have begun to understand the importance of the role they play off the screen for millions of children who look up to them. Several of the bigger named actors have taken it upon themselves to reach out to these children especially those who need a hero in the real world.

Recently, Marvel film stars, Chris Evans and Chris Pratt suited up after their Super Bowl bet to visit the children of different hospitals. Evans, dawned his Patriotic uniform when he dressed up as Captain America, even though he won the bet against Pratt. Not too long ago, Pratt dressed up as Star Lord from the blockbuster hit last summer, “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Now Robert Downey Jr. has stepped up the generosity when the film star delivered a bionic 3d printed arm to a child whose right arm did not develop fully.

The artificial limb was designed to look like Downey’s alter ego, Iron Man and looks like it would be part of the suit that has been seen in the multiple “Iron Man” films and “The Avengers.”

Seven-year-old Alex, received the arm from the generosity of the actor, and through the kindness of Albert Manero, a student at the University of Central Florida, who developed the bionic arm. Manero has founded an organization entitled Limbitless.

It’s moments like these that show the world that these actor are human, and they want to shine a light on those who matter most, the children. These kids look up to them, and they have done a fantastic job in living up to the roles of the off screen superheroes.
