ARLINGTON, Texas (CBS Houston) – Some heroes fight crime. Others battle cancer. In Arlington, a 7-year-old did both.

The boy, identified only as “Kye” by the Star-Telegram, has been battling Leukemia, and had just one wish – to be Batman.

So the “A Wish with Wings” foundation teamed up with the Arlington police and fire departments to make Kye’s dream come true by setting up an faux-adventure for the young hero.

First, the mini caped crusader stopped the Joker from robbing a bank. After that, he caught a purse-snatcher before finishing his day of good deeds by defusing a car bomb set up by The Riddler.

And for all his bravery, Kye was presented with a key to the city.

Just like Batman, the little hero didn’t mince words about his adventures.

“I just want to say, that was fun,” he told the Star-Telegram.
