    Batman took a break from his caped crusading to visit young kids at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Friday.

    “And they’re fighting 24/7 for their lives and if I can help them, that makes me on the inside feel amazing,” the action superhero said in Hollywood.

    The man underneath the mask was Lenny B. Robinson. He attracted national attention in March when he was pulled over for a problem with his license plates.

    He uses a Batmobile to travel the country, visiting sick kids to give them one special message.

    “I always ask them do Batman a favor – and get better,” he said. “And usually their response is ‘Yes, Batman, I will. I will get better.’”

    Bercine Casseus, whose 11-month-old child Kaden is being treated at the hospital, said she was very grateful for Robinson’s visit.

    “I mean, it shows that people care and they come out and spend time and visit the kids for the holidays, which is very nice,” she said.

    Batman and his niece Batgirl were spreading cheer together as passed out coloring books and Livestrong Batman wristbands.

    “If you believe in God, and to know that somebody would take time to travel all over the place to see kids and do the gesture that he’s done, yeah, that’s a blessing,” Casseus said.
