PEORIA, Ill. -- The caped crusader is out and about once again, but this time he isn't fighting crime.

Batman, also known as Maryland businessman Lenny B. Robinson, made a stop in Peoria Thursday at the Children's Hospital of Illinois to help boost the kids' spirits.

Batman has been visiting sick children in the Baltimore area for 11 years, but this summer decided to do a road trip in his Batmobile to bring the superhero to life for children all across the nation.

"It made me feel a lot better. It makes me feel awesome. It makes me feel very cared and loved," said 10 year old patient Kaylee Sroka.

"That's what it is all about. Then I know I'm doing something good. That's the answer, that is the true answer," said Batman, aka Lenny Robinson.

Batman got his new Batmobile last month from a Canadian company that specializes in replicating vehicles seen in movies and tv shows.

The new Batmobile is a replica of the original Batmobile from the 1966 television show, and yes it does shoot flames.
