5-Year-Old Boy's Superhero-Themed Funeral

Super friends and family dressed as Spider-Man, Thor, the Hulk, Superman, Iron Man and Batman in order to give Brayden Denton a superhero-themed funeral. Come check it out.

5-year-old Indiana boy, Brayden Denton, passed away on May 8 after a year-long battle with a rare brain tumor, known as DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). The disease has a 10 percent survival rate. Even though the odds were against him he kept fighting the good fight and used his love of superheroes to distract himself from the grueling procedures he knew he would have to endure, like 30 rounds of radiation treatment.

His first love was Spider-Man, and the good people at the Make-A-Wish Foundation arranged a trip to Universal Studios where he got to meet his favorite Webslinger. Knowing that superheroes were a big part of Brayden's life his family and friends decided Brayden deserved a funeral fit for a superhero. His six pallbearers were Spider-Man, Hulk, Superman, Iron Man, Batman and his Uncle Corey as Thor.

"The whole time I saw them carrying Brayden he was probably up there going, 'This is so cool,'" his mother Staci Denton told the New York Daily News. "That was his world. That's what he would have wanted."
