DAVIE, FL. (WSVN, June 7, 2014)- Gotham may have Batman, but South Florida has a super hero of its own.

Jaylen Hyde is a 9-year old boy from Coral Springs, who like many young boys, wants to be a superhero.

However, Jaylen is a super boy with super strength. He has leukemia. The Make A Wish Foundation of South Florida was able to make Jaylen’s 9th birthday special by making his wish come true.

“He’s been going through leukemia for the past year. We found out last year in January, so it’s been a long run but he’s doing good. He’s in remission right now,” said Dalia Rodriguez, whose superhero son was honored.

On Friday morning, Hyde not only turned nine-years-old, but he was able to experience being a superhero for the day. He was transformed into Striker Boy and was given a mission to save the day. As Striker Boy, he had the duty to prevent the villain “Sneaky Pete” from causing trouble in South Florida.

Sneaky Pete, a mean green half alligator and half man who was on the loose in South Florida.

Hyde was given a superhero costume and his superhero powers were activated. All superheros need a super ride and Striker Boy arrived in his Strikermobile, a yellow Ferrari.
