PHOTOS: Batkid's Wish To Patrol "Gotham City" Granted

Posted: Updated:
San Francisco, CA -

Look out San Francisco, it's Batman to the rescue, but it's not Bruce Wayne behind that mask.

"I'm Batman," Miles Scott said Friday morning.

Miles is 5-years-old and the City by the Bay is transforming into the Dark Knight's playground: Gotham City.

Why? Because this young caped crusader has been battling leukemia for three years...and his big dream is to..."Be Batman...he's my favorite superhero," Miles says.

And, thanks to Miles' friends at Make A Wish, that dream is coming true.

"We started watching the old Adam West Batmans. He likes being the character, he likes putting on the costume and donning the mask," says Nick Scott, Miles' dad.

Friday, Miles will be known simply as Batkid...chasing criminals in a Batmobile. He will be rescuing a damsel in distress on a cable car and assisting in catching The Riddler as he raids a downtown vault...all before getting the key to the city.

Thousands of volunteers have signed up to cheer on Batkid while he captures some "notorious villains and save the city".

Friday morning's adventure will be a watershed moment for the Scotts, as Miles finished his treatment in June.

"It's a big party at the end of a long road," says Miles' dad.

Miles is now in remission and ready to take on the world!
