    To make Miles' wish come true, all San Francisco needs to do is be in distress.

    For on Nov. 15, the five-year old with leukemia will become Batman.

    On that day, Miles will receive a call from the police chief himself, who will ask if the one and only "Batkid" can help save San Francisco, according to the Make A Wish Foundation, which is organizing the day in the sun for Miles.

    Miles will have quite the whirlwind three-and-a-half hours around San Francisco -- from rescuing a "damsel in distress" from the Hyde Street cable car line at 10:30 a.m., to rescuing Giants mascot Lou Seal at AT&T Park, to receiving a key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee at 2 p.m., according to SFist.

    For a full schedule of Miles' stops along the way -- so that you may participate in the fulfillment of this child's wishes -- visit the Make a Wish Foundation Web site here.

    Being super was never so easy.
