A New York City middle school student’s essay about a personal hero has landed him and his favorite teacher a role in a Superman comic book.

Eleven-year-old Hakeem Bennett, of Brooklyn, won the Stone Arch Books national essay contest.

Students wrote about their real-life heroes. Hakeem chose his 8th-grade teacher, Matthew Brown.

Brown is blind in one eye and has tunnel vision in the other. Hakeem writes in his essay that the courageous way Brown lives his life, despite his disability, makes him a true hero.

The book is called “The Kid Who Saved Superman.”

In it, students are trapped after an earthquake. Superman comes to the rescue but needs help when he’s weakened by kryptonite.

Enter Hakeem, who saves the day.
