‘Iron Man’ Robert Downey Jr. met a kid with a partially developed right arm. What he did next will blow your mind!

When Captain America had asked Tony Stark what he would be without his suit, Stark had replied: 'Genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist.' Much like Tony Stark, the actor who portrays him, Robert Downey Jr. is also someone who loves to give back to society. In this video, posted by Downey Jr., he is seen giving a bionic Iron-Man-like arm to Alex a kid with a partially developed right arm.

He wrote on his Facebook profile: 'Had the absolute privilege of presenting a brand spanking new 3D-printed bionic Iron Man arm to Alex, the most dapper 7-year-old I've ever met. Special thanks to Albert Manero, OneNote, and#CollectiveProject for their work making artificial limbs like this more affordable for families with kids who want to show the playground how badass they are.
