Rubiks Cubes, Benjamin Russo

Not all superheroes wear capes!

Benjamin Russo is capturing the hearts of thousands of people thanks to his latest video on YouTube.

In footage going viral, the nine-year-old shows off his impressive skills with Rubik's Cubes. At the same time, he reminds people that dyslexia doesn't define him.

"I have dyslexia. I struggle with reading and writing. I mix up my words. I get very frustrated and upset too sometimes," he shared in his YouTube video. "But … having dyslexia also means I can do something amazing!"

What comes next is Benjamin building a gigantic mosaic right before our eyes. The jaw-dropping accomplishment is a portrait of wrestler John Cena. In fact, the big reveal grabbed the attention of the professional wrestler.

"This is the embodiment of #NeverGiveUp," John shared on Twitter. "Benjamin demonstrates courage, perseverance, vulnerability, tremendous strength... and he's an ARTIST! I admire you, your work, and your outlook."

Perhaps the greatest message of all is Benjamin's final note at the end of the video. While holding up cue cards, the young boy has a message for all those who may be able to relate to him.

"Dyslexia is not my disability. Dyslexia is my SUPERPOWER," he shared.

So what is happening with the portrait today? Last week, Benjamin's family revealed the fate of the special project.

"Taking down @johncena. Unfortunately we can't be buying 750 cubes each time!" the family joked on Instagram. "We are on to the next one...we would have never thought we would have John Cena tweet about it! Amazing! His idol! #johncena #cubekid #cubekid2010 #dyslexia #mosiacjohncena #dyslexic."
