The caped crusader withstood the heat to visit patients at Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.

Patients’ faces lit up as they saw the The Dark Knight of MI pull into Circle Drive in his Batmobile on Friday afternoon.

One patient battling leukemia was particularly excited to see Batman. The excited 10-year-old Arianna Rowland gasped as she saw Batman walk toward her. “Hi Batman!” Arianna exclaimed.

Batman took a knee to be on her level and asked how she was doing.

Patients, family and staff members took photos with Batman and enjoyed a fun afternoon visit from the super hero in black.
