Marvel creates superhero called Blue Ear in honor of deaf boyMarvel usually gets mail from die-hard fans asking extremely detailed questions about their favorite characters, but one request from a desperate mother led staffers to put their thinking caps on and come up with a brand new superhero.Blue Ear -- a super hero with a special listening device that gives him super-sonic hearing -- was created in the likeness of Anthony Smith, a four-year-old boy born with mosaic trisomy 22."We were raised with the words of Stan Lee ringing in our ears: 'With great power, there must also come a great responsibility,'" Marvel editor and writer Bill Rosemann told HealthPop. "If we don't use whatever skills we have to help others, why are we here at Marvel?"Members of the team decided to spring into action. Blue Ear was created by Marvel assistant editor Nelson Ribeiro and production artist Manny Mederos, who dedicated their free time to the project. Ribeiro told HealthPop that Blue Ear was a superhero recruited to be part of a "top super secret government agency called Inter-C.O.M." His hearing device lets him hear "an ant hiccup on the other side of the country," he explained.
