Miles Scott "Batkid"

San Francisco transformed into Gotham City for Miles Scott, a 5-year-old boy battling Leukemia whose one wish was to be Batman and save the city, reports NBC Bay Area.

Citizens from miles around (about 12,000 volunteers) came together at the request of Patricia Wilson of the Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area Foundation.

There was the Batmobile, super-villains and the KAPOW!  And best of all, fans cheered Miles on from the sidewalk like the superhero he is.

“Obviously, we’ll never replicate this,” Wilson said. “This is a moment in time when something goes viral and the city goes alive.”

Read more about Miles superhero day below from NBC Bay Area:

After the Batphone rang at the Grand Hyatt hotel, Miles – a shy kindergartner with bright blue eyes who is in remission from his cancer – became “Batkid,” complete with mask, cape and puffy fake muscles. Wearing Velcro sneakers, Miles exited his Lamborghini-turned-Batmobile, but only after unstrapping himself from his car seat. (Safety first, Robin.)

He jumped on a trampoline to give him a little extra boost and untied a “damsel in distress,” sitting on the cable car tracks on Hyde Street, a plastic box of what looked like explosives strapped to her back. Of course, the 5-year-old didn’t know exactly what to do at first, but was aided by his partner in good deeds, Batman – one of the many volunteer actors participating in the event.

The crowds went wild, cheering, clapping and ringing bells.

After that caper, Batkid went on to apprehend the Riddler, chase the Penguin, and stop at Burger Bar in Union Square to fuel up. And then, like every good superhero does – he was poised to accept the key to the city from the mayor, in this case, Ed Lee.

Miles did such a phenomenal job saving the citizens of Gotham, that President Barack Obama created a Vine video to thank him.

Hat-tip to the citizens of San Francisco. What a beautiful thing to do to make a child’s wish come true.
