Growing up watching superhero movies and reading about them in comics, many of us have fantasized ourselves being saved by them in case danger strikes. We wouldn’t have to worry about criminals and bullies because there would always be someone to save the day!
Speaking of bullies, one 3-year-old girl named Lydia was getting bullied by her classmates at pre-school every day. She used to come back home with bruises all over her. It got to a point that one day she came back home with a black eye because a girl threw a shoe at her.
When little was done about the issue even after her mother, Erica, submitted a complaint, she took pictures of her bruises and shared her story on social media.
A Batman impersonator got in touch and offered to accompany Lydia to school so that she would feel safe, and honestly, this is the sweetest thing ever! According to sources, he walked the little girl to school and went on to inform the bullies that he has Lydia’s best friend and that he would be coming back to check on her!
“I knelt down next to her and told her she is going to have a great day and she will be just fine,” he said.
Lydia got a surprise visit at school from The Batman Of Spring Hill. 💕 I really hope she’s more comfortable at school…
The local Batman later went on to share Lydia’s story on Facebook. He wrote how the little girl was first shy and nervous. However, when he offered her a gift, she seemed to ease down a bit.
He gifted her a Supergirl costume and told her she was as “brave as a hero”!

I made a new friend today. This is Lydia. I was heart broken when I saw her mothers post she was being bullied in…
After Batman showed up, one of her classmates walked up to her, held her hand, and walked her inside the class.
“A little boy came to Lydia as soon as we walked into school this morning and said, ‘Hi best friend Lydia,’ took her hand, and walked her to class,” Calculli wrote. “Seriously made me cry. Thank you so much for being there for my baby.”
You don’t need actual superpowers to become a superhero and this story is proof!
