Superheroes teach us wonderful lessons like “with great power comes great responsibility,” and actor Jason Momoa has clearly taken those messages to heart.
Since his starring role as Aquaman in 2018, Momoa has become a real-life hero to countless individuals. In fact, he recently brought hope and encouragement to kids at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.
Momoa shared several photos from the visit on Instagram. In them, we see him beaming beside several of the “many brave, strong babies” staying there and some of their parents.

One fan, Joshua, was even stronger than Momoa expected! He challenged the boy to an epic arm-wrestling match and made him a unique promise: “If he beat me … he gets to have my trident.”
In a video of the fierce competition, we see Joshua defeat Momoa by a landslide, despite the actor’s big muscles!
Little did Joshua know there was more at stake than just the source of this superhero’s power! Momoa wrote, “See you on set of ‘Aquaman 2,’ Joshua.”
Afterward, Momoa said, “The greatest part of being Aquaman is making children happy.”
Of course, we know that the smiles he left on those kids’ faces have everything to do with his kindness and love rather than his thrilling role as Aquaman.
We’re so grateful to Momoa for using his status as a superhero to bring joy and hope to these children. Who needs movie characters when we have so many incredible role models in real life? Keep up the great work!
