A man who passed away from a brain tumour has left an obituary to his son in which he reveals himself to be ‘Spiderman’.
Aaron Purmort, a comic book lover who had fought a three-year battle with brain cancer, wrote the touching tribute with his wife.
In it, the 35-year-old reveals his superhero identity and writes that he died “after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a years-long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer.”
The obituary, which was published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune last weekend, included a dedication to his two-month-old son Ralph, whom Purmort says “will grow up to avenge his father’s untimely death.”
Purmort died peacefully in his home on November 25th, just before Thanksgiving.
Speaking after the publication of the obituary, which also named Gwen Stefani as Aaron’s first wife, his wife Nora said: “I’ve never laughed and cried more in one sitting, but I’m so glad we got to do this.”
