Batkid cleans up San Francisco with Lambos, thousands of supporters

Miles Scott, a 5-year-old leukemia patient, went to work as Batkid today on the streets of San Franciso — aided by thousands of well-wishers, dastardly villains in need of capture and a few Bat-Lamborghinis recruited for the cause.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation event will encompass much of city life Friday afternoon, from a special "Gotham City" front page of the San Francisco Chronicle to the appearance of the Riddler in City Hall. Batkid will also have to respond to an authentic Batsignal, with scores of citizens asking for his help. Never has a Dark Knight shone quite as bright.
