Volunteer Spotlight: Deadpool
Minh is a dedicated volunteer who really stepped up to the plate when we needed Deadpool. After a special request visit, he became a staple character and has brought laughter and fun to many kids (in a much more PG nature than his movie counterpart equipped with bananas, carrots and a Hello Kitty stethoscope)!
When he’s not breaking the 4th Wall, Minh has a plethora of hobbies including pretending he is Hawkeye (his second favorite superhero) by taking his bow and arrows to the archery range where he has been practicing for several years. Minh has also been an avid practitioner of Martial Arts. He holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and has trained in Kung Fu. Minh also spends his hard earned money collecting all things Deadpool. He even has a bathroom that’s filled with Deadpool collectibles. He also has an addiction to Funko Pops. His home is filled with them.
Minh grew up on watching the X-Men, Batman, and Power Rangers and was completely fascinated by the characters. He would run around the house, jumping from couch to couch, fending off evil villains make believing he was a member of the Justice League, X-Men, Avengers, Power Ranger, or even a member of the Jedi Order from Star Wars. He still does that from time to time, but he would rather not say it out loud.
As he grew older, he learned about comic books and was enthralled by the stories. For all of his life, he wanted to grow up to be a superhero, fighting crime and saving the world. Critical Care Comics has been a chance for him to live his dream of being a superhero, though on a smaller scale. Being able to make one child smile while he’s in his cosplay suit makes everything all worth it. He even had the honor of being named the Cosplay Volunteer for 2017! Minh has been an avid fan of all things in the superhero genre for a long time and loves being able to share his love for superheroes to children and adults alike!
