After 16-year-old Bryan Oliver allegedly shot classmate Bowe Cleveland last week at Taft Union High School in Taft, Calif., students launched a Twitter campaign to persuade Spider-Man creator Stan Lee to visit their injured friend in the hospital. Cleveland is a huge fan of Spider-Man.

The teens were thrilled with their success and grateful to Lee for responding.
Oh my god we did it!! 😄😍😳—
