Tucson Police made a local man feel like a hero last month. 

In mid-September, a man in his early 20's, but who functions at a 7-10 year old level, went missing when he was with his mother. 

His mother told police he was upset after finding out about the death of a cousin the day before. 

She said his cousin was in the military, and her son told her he wanted to be a hero like his cousin. 

When police found him a few hours after he went missing he told them the same thing. 

That's when officers McMullen and DeMuth decided to make his dream come true. 

They bought and presented the man with the same "uniform" as his favorite superhero, Spiderman.
