LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Wishes do come true! A local boy suffering from a rare genetic disorder became "Batman" for a day.
The little caped crusader took over Downtown Summerlin and turned it into Gotham City.
But 6-year-old Ivan Arteaga wasn't there to fight crime - he was there to go shopping!

And of course, what is batman without the Batmobile? After driving around 'Gotham' Batman was ready to call it a day.
"It means a lot. He knew it was his day and it's just wonderful that they did this for him," says mom, Hilda Lisa.
He's a superhero alright.
"Even though he's in pain everyday, he's able to smile. He's able to smile an make everybody else smile," says Lisa.
The inspiring superhero our city needs and deserves.
