"Aww that guy is awsm he has all that money and he uses it to cheer up kids he deserves an award would the noble peace prize be too much?"


Video has emerged showing a Lamborghini driver getting pulled over by police while wearing a Batman costume has been unmasked as a US businessman who visits sick children for charity.

Police have now released footage of the 'Caped Crusader,' who made headlines earlier this week after amused officers took photos of him decked out in his remarkably realistic replica costume on a highway near Washington DC and posted them online.

The man behind the mask was identified as Lenny Robinson, a 48-year-old businessman and father who has been visiting sick children in local hospitals for more than 10 years.

Mr Robinson was driving to Georgetown University Hospital on March 21 when Montgomery County police pulled him over for a routine license plate violation in Maryland.

The problem was that his car had Batman symbol license plates.

Mr Robinson reportedly spends $24,000 a year on Batman paraphernalia and his $4800 custom-made suit takes 45 minutes to put on.

In a live web chat with the Washington Post, Mr Robinson said he chose to dress as Batman because he was a superhero character that most people could easily relate to.

"The real superheroes are the children in the hospital, they are fighting every day for their lives," he said.

It is not known exactly how Mr Robinson funds his charity work but he said he was involved in "various business ventures".

A Post journalist who said he knew Robinson reported he recently sold a commercial cleaning business that he started as a teenager.
