    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Ten-year-old Michael Mack Junior had to have his leg amputated when he was just 11-months-old. Now, he is on a mission to inspire others after his newest inspiration.

    Recently, his mother surprised him with a special Black Panther themed prosthetic leg. His mother asked a tattoo artist to draw up the special superhero design.

    With his new leg, Mack plans to share his excitement with others and become a spokesperson for amputees.

    “It’d be good to just help kids out in need who also have this kind of stuff,” Mack said. “Amputee kids, they can pretty much do anything.”
