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.


batman beyond cosplay

This Batman Beyond cosplay by French cosplayer NightCold Créations is something else. It’s hand crafted, an original design, and took a year and a half of work and planning. If this guy ever gets a 3D-printer, he could take over the world.

real life bat kid

We all know about BatKid Miles here in the states, but now there’s a new BatKid in the UK who’s a real life superhero.

Five-year-old Zavi Ahmed was in a Tesco parking lot with his mom and brother when One-year-old Iris Adamski accidentally got locked in her grandmother’s VW Beetle. Her grandmother was desperate for help and called the police. However, they were unable to fit inside the car after breaking a window.

Enter Zavi who was, awesomely enough, dressed as Batman for the day (his little brother had dressed as Superman. Extra cool points to their mom). Due to his small size, and heroic valor, Ravi was able to climb into the broken window and get the keys, thereby saving the day and the fair maiden.

When asked for comment on his heroic act, Ravi answered “I always feel like a superhero but that day was special.”

My hero.

bat dress

Is the title of this sweater dress a Backstreet Boys reference? I’m going to ignore that. Also, you should ignore the fact that I picked up on the reference.

All you need to know is that this Bat Dress is vengeance…and the night…and whatnot.
