Neighbors bring Comic Con to young boy

- Tampa Bay’s Comic Con draws huge crowds every year, but one Riverview child was crushed because he missed it.

Cameron Bippen, 12, is a huge superhero fan.

He and his father were planning to go to Comic Con in August, but Cameron started having unexplainable seizures.

The seizures became so bad, he was unconscious for two days and ended up missing the event.

Cameron was recently released from the hospital and is continuing therapy at home.

His neighborhood in Panther Trace put together a welcome home surprise party that was a mock Comic con.

The Tampa Bay 501st Star Wars legion came out dressed head to toe in character as well as other superheroes.

It’s a day Cameron will never forget.
