Miles Scott is only 5 years-old, but he has been fighting leukemia his entire life. Make A Wish in San Francisco gave the little boy a chance to forget about all of his hardships and make his dreams come true… and Miles loves Batman, so he got to BE Batman (well, Batkid) and fight super villains along side Batman and San Francisco cops.
Don’t be surprised if you smile AND cry when you see these pictures.
The little boy battled leukemia for years, but he finally got his wish to battle super villains alongside his favorite super hero.
The entire city of San Francisco, Ca, was enamored by the crime fighting duo. Hundreds of people showed up to support Bat Kid.
Miles spent the entire day running around the city, fighting villains and eradicating crime.
… not to mention making every single person in the city fall in love with the little boy.
Officers blocked traffic and rode alongside Bat Kid as a special convoy.
A hostage was tied to a (fake) bomb, trapped there by the Riddler.
Luckily, Bat Kid was there to rescue her and disarm the bomb.
The crowd cheered as Bat Kid saved the day!
Miles was overwhelmed at first by the attention, but soon, he was embracing it.
The crowd went wild when Bat Kid caught the bad guys.
Cries of “Bat Kid, Bat Kid!” could be heard all over the city.
Miles was elated, as was the rest of the city.
“When you have an illness, it’s very important to know you have a support system,” said Gina Futrell, a 51-year-old with multiple sclerosis, who was among a large crowd gathered at Union Square for a chance to so see the “Batkid” in action. “I have an extremely strong support system, and I hope he does too. He’s such a little hero.”
Batkid was called into service by Police Chief Greg Suhr and spent the day zooming from one “crime scene” to the next. Accompanied by an adult Batman impersonator, Batkid rescued a damsel in distress from cable car tracks, captured the Riddler as he robbed a bank, and saved the San Francisco Giants mascot – Lou Seal – from the Penguin’s clutches.
Batkid is the greatest hero we have ever seen!
