” The hero known as Batkid spent Friday restoring peace and order to the people of San Francisco — also known as Gotham City for the day— and smiles to people all across the Internet.
If you’re just getting up to speed, “Batkid” is a five-year-old boy named Miles who’s currently battling leukemia. His biggest wish? To be Batman for a day. So the San Francisco Make-a-Wish Foundation set about making that happen. But they got more than they bargained for when more than 10,000 strangers volunteered to help bring Miles one magical day.”
” Thousands of cheering fans lined the streets of San Francisco as Batkid saved a damsel in distress after the Riddler tied her to train tracks, stopped a bank robbery, rescued San Francisco Giants mascot Lou Seal from the vile Penguin and attended a press conference in which Mayor Ed Lee presented him with a key to the city.
Batkid’s appreciative fans flocked to social media to record the spectacle. By 4 p.m. San Francisco time, more than 10,000 Instagram photos had been posted with the hashtag #SFBatKid. We’ve rounded up 25 of our favorites in the gallery above. And as an added bonus, you can check out footage of Batkid rescuing his damsel in distress right here:”
