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.

After a full week of #StanLeeMeetBowe tweets, Lee finally responded on Tuesday.

The teens were thrilled with their success and grateful to Lee for responding.

C’mon, Tobey Maguire. Make it happen!

Update:

Stan Lee released a video message for Bowe:

  • GaryTheBrave

    Good for them and Stan Lee. Maybe Stan will do a special Spidey for Bowe.

  • T.Marie

    That’s really sweet. I’m glad Stan Lee decided to do it.
