Little kids all over the world watch Batman and dream of booming him one day in some way, shape or form. Some go on to be police officers, others get into filmmaking but for one small boy from San Francisco who is fighting leukemia will get to be Batman for a day.
According to SFGate, a young boy named Miles will set his illness and his personal problems aside for a single day to make sure the streets of San Francisco are free from the likes of The Penguin, the Riddler and young Miles will even get the girl in the end.
Here’s a complete rundown from Make-A-Wish:
After rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batman will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a call on his batphone to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batman’s help. Why?
Because the Penguin will be kidnapping a famous Gotham City mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!
After catching the Penguin, Batman will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of Gotham City will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!
This is one of the coolest things we’ve heard in a while and you can’t help but smile thinking of young Miles being able to play out the dream all of us had as kids. He won’t be playing Batman in a movie, or dancing in costume for dimes in Los Angeles, rather he’s going to become the character.
Bruce Wayne is Batman’s alter ego in the comic books, but in real life we learned to day that Batman’s true identity is young Miles from San Francisco.
