Thanks to the Disney Accelerator Program, some lucky kids are getting the chance to make their dreams come true.

UK-based company Open Bionics is developing these super awesome prosthetic limbs for kids based on Iron Man, Star Wars, and Frozen.

"They won't have to do boring physical therapy, they'll train to become heroes. They're not just getting medical devices, they're getting bionic hands inspired by their favorite characters," the company said in a statement.

Disney has provided consultation on the project and royalty-free licensing.

Working with Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB and Disney creative teams, the 3D-printed arms are based on on Iron Man's gauntlet, a lightsaber and Queen Elsa's hand.

A window washing crew from American National Skyline surprised patients (and their families) at Memphis' Le Bonheur Children's Hospital on Wednesday by dressing up as Marvel superheroes. High fives all around to the crew, whose job is already tough enough, even without the masks.

Conservative group One Million Moms is at it again, directing its not-quite-a-million members to boycott Marvel and DC Comics due to recent announcements from both companies about their futures of their gay characters.

DC has revealed that a major character is soon going to come out as gay, while Marvel announced the engagement of superhero Northstar to his boyfriend, Kyle.

These events don't sit will with One Million Moms, whose anti-gay agenda has also led them to protest the wedding of Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin Keller.

"Children desire to be just like superheroes," said the group in a statement. "Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'"

The statement goes on to accuse the publishers of trying to "indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds."

Marvel and DC have yet to respond to the homophobic comments.
