Online posts showing “Batman” and his custom Batmobile getting pulled over by Calgary police officers have earned great reviews on social media Tuesday.
“This made my daughter’s day,” Deena M Bell wrote. “Her exact words were: ‘So he is real.’”
“I saw this guy on Macleod Trail down by Canyon Meadows,” Denise Leong Eckert wrote. “Thought I was seeing things. This is awesome.”
A profile under the name Holybatman initially posted the photos Monday night, with the below status:
“I met two officers / the real heroes. I want to thank the Calgary police and all that you do for the community. Maybe next time we can carpool. Oh wait I only have two seats.”
The Calgary Police Service shared the photos of officers posing with Batman on its official Facebook page and Twitter account Tuesday:
Officer – “Good morning sir, name please?”
Driver – “I’m BATMAN! ”
Officer – “What are you?”
Driver – “I’m whatever #Calgary needs me to be.”
Officer – “Is this your vehicle?”
Driver – “Yes, it’s the Batmobile.”
Officer – “Very good, Sir!”
The post earned hundreds of reactions and shares, which were overwhelmingly positive, with one commenter concerned for the superhero’s safety.
“Hopefully Batman was wearing a helmet as this vehicle requires,” Nano Chrispino wrote.
