About Marvel’s Hero Project
In life, it doesn’t take wearing a suit of iron, carrying a mythical hammer or swinging from spider webs to be a real hero. Sometimes the person who can make a positive difference in the world is the person who simply sees a problem and has the passion to find a creative solution. And in Marvel’s Hero Project, the new Disney+ series, those people are kids. Like the girl who helps loved ones with Alzheimer’s make connections through puzzles or a boy who grows an urban garden to feed the hungry, despite his own family’s financial hardships.
The first non-scripted reality series from Marvel Entertainment takes an up close and personal look at the lives of twenty amazing kids from across the country, each of whom is doing remarkable things to help his or her community.
Each week, Marvel surprises these young heroes, who have dedicated themselves to performing selfless acts of bravery, kindness and betterment, by welcoming them into Marvel’s Hero Project, inspiring viewers of all ages.
