I’ll admit, I tend to be a tad cynical about a lot of charities, but I’ve got nothing bad to say about Make-A-Wish — giving sick kids one really rad day is to be commended no two ways about it, and it sounds like the Make-A-Wish folks are totally outdoing themselves for five-year-old Miles from San Francisco.
Like any self-respecting rude dude, Miles loves Batman, so when he was asked what his wish was, he said he wanted to be the caped crusader. Now, Make-A-Wish could have gone the relatively easy route and been all, “Hey, do you want to meet Christian Bale? He was Batman!” but instead they’re planning to transform downtown San Francisco into Gotham City, where they’ll stage an entire elaborate Batventure for Miles.
“After rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batman will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a call on his batphone to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batman’s help. Why?
Because the Penguin will be kidnapping a famous Gotham City mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!
After catching the Penguin, Batman will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of Gotham City will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!”
SO COOL. How could Miles not kick cancer’s ass? Kid’s barely in big-boy pants and he can take down the Penguin and Riddler! Also, burgers for lunch! Yeeeeeaaah.
