A young boy in Australia has grown up to become a superhero with the help of a cartoon, which could be the first of its kind in the world.
The young boy, named K-9, was taken by the Australian government when he was just five years old, after his family was forced to relocate to New South Wales.
He was placed in foster care, and he had been bullied and left to fend for himself.
“It was really traumatic for me,” he told the ABC.
K-9 had been a big hit in his home town of Lismore, but his life turned around when he befriended a superhero named Captain Marvel, who was an Australian superhero in the comics.
“I knew him very well, and we had a great time hanging out,” he said.
Captain Marvel was a superhero who could take on the shape of an animal, but K-8 K-10, a boy from Lismorore, had also grown up with a big appetite for superheroes, so Captain Marvel suggested he take him on a mission to rescue his family.
“He was always on my mind, he was the one who encouraged me to go and play with the other kids,” K-3 said.
“I just felt so happy.”
Captain Marvel and his superhero friends rescued the boy and K-2 from a house in Sydney’s west, where he was taken to a hospital.
When they returned home, K-7, a friend of K-1’s, asked his mother if he should go to the doctor.
But K-5 said he was scared to go, and his mother, who is a nurse, didn’t want to take him.
A nurse at the hospital called the police and the police arrived at the scene, and the two began searching the house.
After an hour, K 7 was found hiding under a bed in a room with an empty bedside drawer, with a toy knife lying next to him.
The two began arguing, and Captain Marvel told K 7 to leave.
‘They had the right to come’K-1 told the police the police had been called because he had left the room, but he was still in the house with the toy knife.
She said the officers were telling him that he was in danger and he should leave the house, but that Captain Marvel wouldn’t let him go.
They tried to get K-4 and K 7 out of the house but K 5 said Captain Marvel was waiting for them.
“They told me to leave and I had to,” he recalled.
“It was my mother and father’s house.”
The police eventually gave K-11 a bag with Captain Marvel’s cape and gloves, and they took him to a local police station.
There, he confessed that he had taken the knife from K-15, his friend from the house in the bedroom, who had been playing with K-13, and that he hadn’t been playing much.
In court, Captain Marvel explained to the judge that he and Captain America were the two most popular superheroes in Lismorea, and was angry that the police were keeping K-14 and K 12 out of their lives.
Despite the argument, K 10 said Captain Black and K 15 were the best superheroes he had ever met, and it was a good thing that Captain Black had come to rescue them.
Police arrested K-12 on suspicion of kidnapping, and K 13 was charged with conspiracy to kidnap and possession of a knife with intent to commit murder.
His mother said they would appeal the court decision, but they were told they would have to wait until they heard about a second court appearance in two weeks, when the next hearing would take place.
