Batkid Saves San Francisco
"[Today's events] all started when Miles Scott, who has leukemia that's currently in remission, told the Make-A-Wish Foundation that the dream of his young life was to be a superhero for one day, helping those in danger and fighting villains," writes Bill Chappell. "A remarkable response followed, with the police, city officials and members of the public pledging their help."
"[I]n what had been carefully kept as a surprise for Miles, San Francisco played the part of Gotham City. Thousands of people turned out to watch the boy, in a Batkid costume, rescue hostages and foil an evil plot by The Riddler, among other exploits."
