KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A pint-sized superhero sprang into action and saved Kansas City from an evildoer all day on Friday. Muchacho de Hierro might be six years old, but he has already prevented a lot of crime from happening.

Everywhere super villain KC Cucaracha wreaked havoc, Muchacho was not far behind. He stopped the pesty cockroach from stealing LEGOs from LEGOLAND and the MLS Cup from Sporting KC.

Fighting crime is no easy task, but Muchacho was well prepared. When he's not fighting crime, Isai Melgar has been fighting a battle against leukemia. This day of crime fighting started as a wish that was granted by the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Little did he know, the wish was adopted by Randy Burgard of the Diabolical Crew. He calls it a group of friends who hang out and does good. They raised about $10,000 to make this wish happen for Isai.

Although Isai's time as Muchacho de Hierro was just for one day, he'll always be remembered as the superhero who saved KC. If you missed out on his adventures, check out Twitter for the pictures. Just search #MHsavesKC
