You may remember the most adorable child on the planet who got to save the world for a day, otherwise known as Batkid.

Back in 2013, the Make a Wish Foundation shut down and transformed the streets of San Francisco for 24 hours in order to allow five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott to achieve his dream.

It's safe to say he won the entire world's heart. Anyone who had the privilege of watching him race through Gotham and defeat villains like the Joker and the Penguin as well as rescue citizens witnessed pure joy.

Unsurprisingly, Batkid became a sensation as the mini-superhero, everyone fell in love with the youngster as well as sending him prayers and well wishes for his brave battle with cancer.

It was MAJOR news at the time, even Barack Obama adorably chimed in to thank Miles for his services to the city:

As if this story wasn't heartwarming enough, it has now emotional been revealed that Miles is CANCER FREE. We're not crying, you're crying…

The youngster is now officially in remission, we wonder if his superpowers had anything to do with it?

His story was even mde into a 2015 documentary entitled Batkid Begins, which tells the inspirational story of the little boy as well as how the whole event was organised by Make a Wish Foundation and the San Francisco mayor at the time, Ed Lee.

The charity has said that Miles has returned to normality (in disguise): 

"Since his crime fighting day five years ago, Miles has returned to being a typical kid – playing little league, going to school, helping his family farm, and even selling his first market goat in the local fair! Now 10 years old and in fifth grade, Miles loves science and robotics."

Batkid, who is now ten-years-old, featured on the San Francisco Bay Area Make a Wish Foundation Twitter account as a success story, for beating his illness:

We are so delighted for Miles and his family, he is truly an uplifting superhero who inspires us all.

‘Batkid’ was funded by the Make-a-Wish Foundation and saw 5 year-old Miles Scotts’ dream of being Batman for a day come true.

Miles is recovering from lymphoblastic leukaemia. The entire city of San Francisco got involved and even President Barack Obama had a role. See the video above.

‘Batkid’ was supposed to be honoured at this year’s Oscars ceremony.

When the producers of Sunday’s Oscars ceremony were forced to cancel Batkid’s segment, no one was more upset that Andrew Garfield.

It was arranged that Miles and his family would go to Disneyland where Andrew drove down to meet them.

The Academy have taken full responsibility for the unfortunate event saying: “Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production.”

It is not known if this incident has anything to do with Emma Stone’s unexplained absence at the awards ceremony.
