SAN FRANCISCO, CA -

Dressed in a black Batman costume, a 5-year-old San Francisco boy with leukemia has fulfilled his wish to be his favorite superhero.

In the process, Miles Scott became a darling of social media and attracted thousands of fans around the country.

One onlooker, who has multiple sclerosis, calls the boy now known as Batkid "a little hero."

Batkid was called into service by San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr to help fight crime. He rescued a woman from cable car tracks in Nob Hill and captured the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown bank. He even rescued the San Francisco Giants mascot who was kidnapped by the Penguin.

READ UPDATE - Department of Justice indicts Riddler and Penguin on kidnapping and conspiracy charges.

Miles, who is now in remission, was able to fulfill his wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city.
