Hearing-impaired boy inspires new superhero

(NECN) In a blue cape and a mask, Anthony Smith isn’t dressed for Halloween. The outfit is what he must wear to work every day.

When asked if he is a superhero, the 6-year-old simply replies, “Yeah.”

The little boy from Salem, New Hampshire, was born without his right ear and with hearing loss on his left side.

Now Anthony, and his original blue hearing aid, are the inspirations behind one of Marvel’s newest superheroes, Blue Ear.
