Heroes Alliance Ohio at Wizard World Ohio Comic Con

by Aaron Einhorn
Heroes Alliance Ohio was once again on-hand at Wizard World’s Ohio Comic Con to meet the excited children attending the convention and to help raise money for the Hero Initiative. Through the course of the weekend, Captain America, U.S. Agent, Wonder Woman, Rogue, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Superman all appeared at the Heroes Alliance table.

Hundreds of children were met with, most of who were overjoyed to meet the heroes, and after a very full three days, close to $100 in donations were taken in to provide to the Hero Initiative.

Special thanks to Stephen Blanzaco and Christina McMenemy for providing out-of-costume support.

The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment. Since its inception, The Hero Initiative (Formerly known as A.C.T.O.R., A Commitment To Our Roots) has had the good fortune to grant over $500,000 to over 50 comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today.
