Superheroes put lives on hold to wash windows, visit patients at Children's

Superman, Batman and Spiderman put their busy lives on hold to visit Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota in Minneapolis to wash windows, much to the surprise of the patients inside.

While the real job of these Acme window washers is obvious, they were on a much more important mission: bringing smiles to the faces of children who, on some days, may find that pretty tough.

"It's nice to just be here for the kids, it's not about being cool and dressing up, it's just to be here for the kids," Batman said.

Young superhero Valiant Vito is in a big battle against brain cancer, so today he was thrilled to get a superpower boost from his friends Superman and Batman.

"It's perfect, because last night we got the rough news and we're like alright our life is about to change again, what are we gonna do?" Valiant's mom Nicole said.  "So we came here and the boys were having fun and were able to forget about everything for a few minutes and that's all we really want at the end of the day.

After the clean-up job was done, the superheroes headed inside to sign autographs, and the kids, who are superheroes in their own right, got to make their own masks, capes and badges.
