Welcome to the Legion!

This morning, Ryan Reynolds, star of the wildly successful Deadpool film, penned and published a moving tribute to a young Deadpool fan who recently died of cancer. Reynold’s met the fan in question, Connor McGrath, a 13 year old from Edmonton Canada, in February through the Make a Wish foundation, surprising him with an early, rough-cut screening of the film.

Reynold’s writes quite fondly of the experience, saying he “never felt luckier to get to be Wade Wilson.” You can read his full statement on his Facebook page. Just make sure to have a box of tissues ready.
