The Make-A-Wish Foundation has turned San Francisco into Gotham City today to fulfill the Batman-themed dream of five-year-old Miles Scott (aka BatKid), who has been battling leukemia for three years. Miles will be known as BatKid throughout the day as he travels around fighting well-known villains and rescuing damsels in distress. Make-A-Wish Bay Area on Twitter and the San Francisco Chronicle are posting live updates of BatKid’s heroic deeds around town. A livestream of the San Francisco Mayor awarding BatKid the Key to the City will start at 5:30 PM ET on ABC News.
