The Avengers assembled and came through for Seb.  Dr. Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo wrote, “I think we have some competition for the strongest Avenger, @chrishemsworth. Get well soon, Seb!”

Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel movies replied back, “The strongest Avenger by far. You are my heart hero, Seb.”

Samual L Jackson, who plays Nick Fury,” shared his wishes for a speedy recovery.

and “Captain Marvel” Bree Lawson officially welcomed Seb into the Avengers.
