Tyriee spends his days running, jumping, and playing all over New York City, perfectly acceptable pastimes for the Boy Who Saved the City. His superfast lightning speed allows our hero to zoom from place to place in the blink of an eye, fighting crime and keeping our city safe.

But all super heroes have a weakness, and for Tyriee it may seem to be the clubfoot he was born with or the fact that a congenital condition has affected the growth of his left leg. For years, Super Me struggled with the uncertainty of whether or not he'd have to continue his crime fighting with only one foot, as various doctors gave different opinions about the strength of his clubfoot.

Despite five surgeries and having to wear over 20 casts and braces to help with both conditions as he grows, there is no stopping Super Me! Tyriee channels the energy of all the challenges thrown his way into his lightning bolt, which he uses to propel himself forward, strike out evil villains, and soar high into the clouds.

Super Me's story proves that not every super hero is defeated by their kryptonite. Tyriee has turned his biggest weakness into his biggest strength – making him the perfect hero to save his beloved city. Up, up and away, Super Me!
