Arlington Batman: Kye as the Caped Crusader (Video)
Kye as Batman: A Wish with Bat-Wings
Did you know that Batman is patrolling the streets of Arlington, Texas? If you're a spandex-wearing criminal, take note: your day is done.
The Arlington Police Department, the Arlington Fire Department, and A Wish with Wings teamed up to have 7-year-old Kye, who suffers from leukemia, spend a day as Batman.
Kye got to cruise around in an ad-hoc Batmobile, and foiled The Joker and The Riddler. We like how Arlington's Joker went with the Heath Ledger look and the Caesar Romero persona.
Kye wasn't fighting crime alone: besides a taller version of Batman, he also had Robin and Batgirl with him, just in case things got out of hand.
You can see the adventures of the Arlington Batman in the video below: we're unsure why they went with the Mission: Impossible theme in the intro, though.
From the video description: "The adventure began at 10 a.m. and ended with a special ceremony at City Hall where Assistant Police Chief James Hawthorne presented Kye a 'key to the City.' Kye's special day included a bank, fake money, motor officers, a bogus "bomb" and couple of cackling villains whose criminal acts were foiled by the good guys."
