The Batkid world tour hit Times Square this morning, as 5-year-old Make-A-Wish superhero Miles Scott popped up on Good Morning America earlier today — in full costume, obviously — for a segment that recapped and briefly updated his story. Most of the video is nothing new, especially if you were following the story as it was happening a few weeks ago, but it’s still the most adorable thing in the world, and his dad said stuff like “This has kind of been like the after-party for him. Chemo … it’s all he’s ever known. He was diagnosed at 18 months. But this is kind of a way to celebrate that ending,” which is both wonderful and heartbreaking, so maybe carve out a few minutes and watch it if you have the time.
If you don’t have the time, however, allow me to suggest zipping ahead to the 4:45 mark, at which point young Miles is sent to save musician and noted carbonated beverage pitchman Pitbull from the Joker, after the supervillain locked him in the show’s green room. Now, if this were any other story, I would point out how absurd it is that the Joker’s big diabolical plot involved imprisoning a popular rapper in a comfortable room full of snacks and bottled water in a crowded building in the middle of New York on a Monday morning, or that maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad to leave Pitbull in there for an hour or two, but that would be a very silly thing for me to do in this scenario. Instead, I’ll just post the video and let you watch Batkid whup the Joker’s ass. As God intended.
