The man who dressed up as Batman and visited Baltimore children who were sick in hospitals has passed.
Lenny Robinson was 51. Robinson’s custom black car — his version of the Batmobile — had broken down on eastbound Interstate 70 near Big Pool in Washington County about 10:30 p.m., state police said. Robinson was standing in the fast lane and checking the engine when he and his vehicle were struck by a Toyota Camry.
Robinson, aka Route 29 Batman, had 3 sons and spent much of his time in his Batman suit, traveling to children’s hospitals and promoting charitable causes.
His funeral service is set for Wednesday at noon at Har Sinai Congregation in Owings Mills. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Superheroes for Kids at Sinai Hospital.
