Batkid Begins: Saves ‘Gotham,’ Captivates Internet

The streets of San Francisco — sorry, Gotham City — went absolutely insane Friday for a 5-year-old boy named Miles.

Miles has leukemia, and his fondest wish was to be Batman for a day. The Make-a-Wish Foundation obliged, setting up several scenarios around the city involving two of Gotham’s greatest enemies, The Penguin and The Riddler. At last count nearly 15,000 San Franciscans had signed up online to play the grateful onlookers.

Result: cheering crowds comparable in size to the ones that gathered when the San Francisco Giants won the World Series.

Batkid’s journey began Friday morning, as he met Batman and the (donated) Lamborghini Batcar he would be driven around in for the day
