ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – As children, we were told that Superheroes never die, but now we know it’s a total myth.
Lenny B. Robinson, 51, who visited children in hospitals dressed as Batman and entered the public spotlight after police pulled him over in costume, died Sunday after a car hit his custom Batmobile on a Maryland interstate.
His custom Lamborghini broke down while he was driving east on I-70 in the fast lane. He got out to check the engine while still in the lane, and a Toyota Camry struck his car, which in turn hit him.
In the world of Marvel, Superman could have come to Batman’s rescue and pull him up and away from impending death.
But this is the real world.
Yet, truth be told that in the real world, there are real heroes, and Robinson was among them.
