Keeping good on their promise to five year-old Miles Scott, San Francisco came together yesterday to recreate Gotham city on behalf of the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Miles, who is in remission after a four year-long battle with leukemia, dreamed of becoming Batkid and an estimated 7000 strangers enlisted their services to help his wish come true.

The upbeat little boy successfully saved a damsel in distress and apprehended his two greatest foes, the Penguin and the Riddler, cruising to the scene of the crime in a sleek black batmobile (a donated Lamborghini).

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee was so grateful for Batkid’s help that he awarded Miles with a key to the city.

The Chronicle celebrated Miles’ victory by releasing a special edition of the newspaper with the the headline “Batkid Saves City.”

One of the more notable people to get in on the action? Barack Obama, who praised Batkid’s work via a Youtube video.
