In a wonderful gesture that echoed the Bay Area’s “Batkid,” the Edmonton Oilers and City of Edmonton teamed up to make one child’s dream come true on Monday.
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada learned that Mable Tooke – or #SpiderMable – wanted to battle crime while she battles cancer.
The Edmonton Police beckoned Spider Mable by noting that Oilers captain Andrew Ference was “kidnapped” by the diabolical Mysterio.
The Ference family begged for her help:

Spider-Man pitched in to help, too.
You really can’t have a superhero without a sweet theme song, by the way.
Ultimately, #SpiderMable saved the day, and captured many hearts along the way. Here are some additional photos from the Oilers:
