Miles is 5-years-old. Much of his life has been spent in hospitals, as he was diagnosed with leukemia when he was very small.

Now, however, his cancer is in remission. And, as an extra-special treat, an entire city - with a little help from the Make-A-Wish-Foundation - transformed the little lad into a superhero.

All hail the Batkid!

Yup, he dressed up as Batman, earned the title of Batkid and spent the day fighting crimes in his own personal Gotham City.

His little brother played Robin, if anyone was wondering.


The whole town stood back and let the brave little boy beat the Riddler, drive about in the Batmobile, hang out with adult Batman and more.

Better still, they cheered him on the entire time, making him feel like a real bonafide superhero.

Even President Obama made sure to support the brave little boy in his quest:

Go Batkid, go!

The video of Batkid's adventures is an absolute must-watch.

Just think of it as Batkid: The Movie…

Humanity has been restored. God bless this Batkid and we hope he makes a full recovery from his illness.
