He’s faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a hurricane, and this Saturday Superman will do what he does best – help those in need. At 10am on October 21, Superman will present a check for $2,000 from Ripley’s Believe It or Not! to a group that is dedicated to helping real life heroes. Hometown Heroes Alliance, formerly Mission Blue Inc., supports first responders who have been injured on the job.

During the month of October, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Orlando is thanking first responders, including power linemen and women along with FEMA employees, for their service following Hurricane Irma. Admission is free for the first responder, and up to 3 of his or her guests will receive 50% off admission through October 31.

Superman was originally scheduled to visit the Orlando Odditorium on Saturday, September 9, but Hurricane Irma cancelled the appearance. The event, part of Ripley’s Superhero Summer Series, has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 21. Guests can meet Superman as part of the regular admission price.

Visitors also have the chance to be real life heroes. A blood drive will also be occurring from noon to 5 p.m. Those who donate blood will receive free admission to Ripley’s Odditorium.
