For one day, five-year-old boy Miles Scott, who was recovering from cancer, became a superhero for a day. As San Francisco transformed itself into Gotham City, thousands of people flocked to watch the young boy transform to Batkid.

Through the efforts of Make-A-Wish Foundation, Miles’ dream became a reality. He then helped Batman in his mission to rescue a damsel in distress and capture the Riddler.

But, his day didn’t just stop there. Just like Batman, he got to experience riding the Batmobile. He also met a young Robin. The San Francisco Chronicle even printed a special edition for him, with the catching headline, “Batkid Saves City”.
