Batman pulled over by cops, turns out to be a real hero

This is such a great story. You’ll know I have a bit a of a predilection for Real Life Superhero stories if you’ve been reading this blog for long. One of the greatest posts ever ended up with actual Real Life Super Heroes (RLSH) arguing in the comments, which subsequently had to be closed. Golden days. But I always keep an eye out for stories along those lines and this one is gold.

lenny batman Batman pulled over by cops, turns out to be a real heroMeet Lenny B. Robinson, AKA Batman. He was pulled over by cops recently because his black Lamborghini didn’t have licence plates. Just Bat symbols. You’re thinking this guy is a complete nutcase, right? Well, you’re wrong. The man is a legend. He’s a rich guy, using his money for good, just like the real Bruce Wayne.

He visits sick kids in hospital, dressed as Batman, and brings them all kinds of Batman paraphenalia like books, rubber bracelets, toys. He signs the books, t-shirts and other gifts as Batman. His custom-made suit cost $5,000. He spends around $25,000 a year on gifts for the kids and is having a Batmobile (modeled on the one from the movies, but I’m not sure which movie) built for $250,000. All this without seeking publicity. The only reason we know about him is because he got pulled over and people snapped pics of him talking to police and those pics went viral. Subsequently, journalist Mischael S Rosenwald, a personal friend, has written this piece all about him. It’s a really touching story – go read it now.

You want a real life super hero? You got one, in Lenny B Batman Robinson. Well done, sir!
