Batkid screencrush

The Make-a-Wish Foundation teamed with the city of San Francisco earlier this month to to give five-year-old Miles “Batkid” Scott his chance to protect “Gotham City” from criminals, but the young hero’s mission continues.

This morning, the Batkid appeared on Good Morning America to protect rapper Pitbull from the Joker, and a group of artists from SF has even produced a digital comic about his heroic story. Batkid’s starting to give Bruce Wayne a run for his money.

Scott, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 18 months old, underwent chemotherapy treatment and has been in remission since June of this year. So far he seems to have a bright future as a crimefighter ahead of him. Not a lot of folks can put “saved a pop star from the Joker” on a job resume.

Check out a video of Batkid’s appearance on GMA below.

The new digital Batkid comic, put together by ad agency AKQA, uses photos from Scott’s big day to tell his story as a cancer survivor and, now, superhero. A message at the end of the special comic invites readers to donate to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The digital comic follows The San Francisco Chronicle’s special edition print publication of roughly 1,000 “Gotham City Chronicle” newspapers distributed in SF’s Union Square during Batkid’s adventure.
