Ben Affleck Became a Real Life Superhero

posted by Jonathan - 

I'm not one to willingly credit Ben Affleck for anything.  He was pretty universally bashed for his Batman portrayal, and personally I haven't really liked anything he's been in since Dogma and that was YEARS ago.  

BUT...by all accounts he's a really great dude, and at the end of the day that's what matters.

He came through BIG for Mukuta, a kid in Atlanta who evidently has only days-to-weeks left to live.

This started with a tweet that was calling just for a Batman costume or impersonator:

Somehow word about this tweet got to Batman himself - Ben Affleck - and the series of events that followed will bring you to TEARS, man.  TEARS, I tell you.

While Ben was filming a movie and couldn't fly to Atlanta to meet Mukuta face to face, the kid got a Facetime call from BATMAN HIMSELF, and that's freaking awesome.

And, the story doesn't end there.

Evidently, Mukuta's mom is in Zimbabwe, and Ben decided she needed to be by her son's bed.

Way to go Ben. There's nothing more important than doing wonderful things for kids like Mukuta all around the world.
