Huge crowds gathered in San Francisco today to cheer on Bat Kid, aka Miles, a 5-year-old who is battling cancer, saving Gotham City, and making it rain all over the entire internet's face. Don't believe me? Try to get through all these pictures of the pint-sized crime fighter without breaking down a tiny bit. I'm not crying — you're crying! ALL OF YOU ARE CRYING.

Miles has been battling cancer since he before his second birthday, according to the Los Angeles Times. But what he really wanted to do is normal 5-year-old kid stuff. Uh, like be Batman. And so the Make-A-Wish foundation, along with the entire city of San Francisco came together to transform the place into Gotham City. More from the LAT,

...the effort will include Miles' own Batmobile, a personal call from Police Chief Greg Suhr for help, the apprehension of the Riddler and then a flash mob involving hundreds of people in Union Square alerting Batkid to the fact that Penguin has kidnapped Lou Seal, the San Francisco Giants mascot.

Batkid will then chase the Penguin around AT&T Park, rescuing Lou Seal and earning a key to the city during a presentation at City Hall.

All of these exploits were kicked off by a live television news bulletin carried by KGO-TV and covered in the "Gotham City Chronicle," 1,000 copies of which were printed by the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday, the top A1 story penned by — who else? — Clark Kent.

Heart not warmed yet? I'm about to fucking microwave it.

Not only did thousands of people come out with signs, but the internet was all over this. Tweets about Bat Kid were being shared all over the place. The hashtag #SFBatkid almost made my Tweetdeck explode. The whole world was cheering for this little guy.

Oh my god you guys I'm a helpless puddle of strange loving feelings toward humanity. New York City residents, if you get hugged by an unhinged nondescript brunette while walking home from work today, that's me.

Thank you, Bat Kid. And thank you, San Francisco. Erm, Gotham.
