RIP: Route 29 Batman Dies In Highway Accident

Sorry to upset you with bad news, but a person like Lenny B. Robinson deserves to be recognized and remembered.

Lenny B. Robinson aka Route 29 Batman was one of the good guys. According to the Washington Post, he was killed in a highway crash along I-70 in Maryland last night when he pulled over with engine trouble.

If you are unfamiliar, Robinson was a wealthy 51-year old Maryland man who became well known for dressing like Batman and driving his black Lamborghini (and later a Batmobile replica) to local children’s hospitals where he would hand out toys and cheer kids up with a visit from the Caped Crusader. In fact, he was on duty right ’til the end:

Robinson had just stopped at a gas station, where he met a family whose children were interested in his custom-made car, Maryland state police in Hagerstown said. Robinson gave the kids some superhero paraphernalia before leaving about the same time as his new acquaintances. When they saw him pull over, they did the same and witnessed the 10:30 p.m. accident, state police said.
