Batkid Rescues Grateful San Francisco Damsel, Pursues Penguin
By day, he’s just a 5-year-old boy from Northern California. But when the city needs a hero, he becomes the Batkid.
And today is one of those days. The Riddler and the Penguin are terrorizing San Francisco, in a nefarious plot hatched by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The group has also converted two black Lamborghinis into Batmobiles to escort Batkid around the city as he battles the forces of evil. Along the way, he’ll be guided by dispatches from Police Chief Greg Suhr and cheered on by at least 12,000 grateful citizens.
“We have done other superhero wishes before at Make-A-Wish, and no city has embraced it like this one,” Patricia Wilson, the foundation’s director for the Bay Area, told the San Francisco Chronicle.
