As we previously reported, Mike Meyer, a 48-year old mentally disabled man from Illinois, recently had his vast collection of Superman comics and memorabilia returned to him after it was allegedly stolen by this guy. Being a whole new breed of awesome, the comics community rallied in support of Meyer after the theft was reported and went out of their way to help him replace the stolen items, eventually doubling the size of his original collection.
“I have never felt so much love in my life; I no longer feel like the Frankenstein monster. I feel that people understand me now, for the first time in my life.”
Now that an arrest has been made and the items recovered, Meyer is paying the kindness forward by donating the excess items to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, saying: “I’ve been blessed with a lot of things, so I wanted to share them.” The large donation reportedly provided six boxes of Superman items which were made available to the hospital’s sick and injured kids in the form of bingo prizes.
“When you make somebody happy, it does something for you, too,” Meyer said.
