AKRON, Ohio - Superheroes have once again descended on Akron Children’s Hospital, delighting the kids and ensuring the hospital windows sparkle.

For the seventh year, a crime-fighting crew from American National Skyline on Thursday rappelled down six stories of the main hospital building, working their squeegees while bringing smiles to both patients and onlookers.

After they rappelled, the superheroes met with kids in the lobby and took gift bags to patient rooms, ”... sharing inspiration that only super heroes can convey to kids enduring health challenges that can sometimes require super human strength and bravery,” the hospital stated.

Representing a spectrum of classic comics and movies, the team included Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Captain America, Batwoman, Superwoman, Catwoman and Princess Leia.
