“Baltimore Batman” victim of fatal car accident

Lenny B. Robinson, known throughout the state as the “Baltimore Batman” or the “Route 29 Batman,” died as a result of a fatal car crash in mid-August.

Robinson earned his nickname as a result of his imitating the iconic caped character: he drove a custom-made car designed to look like the Batmobile and dressed as its driver, playing Batman for children in area hospitals. He also often remained somewhat in character outside of his contribution to charitable causes. Immediately prior to the accident, in fact, he had just given children some Batman-related gifts while at a service station.

The collision occurred just after Robinson had stopped on Route 70 to check engine trouble in his custom-made vehicle. A Washington Post report termed the area “unlit” and quoted police as stating that Robinson was “partially in the fast lane” when he was hit by another vehicle driving at a high speed. Maryland police pronounced Robinson, 51, dead at the scene.

The other driver was not injured and has not spoken publicly about the accident. The causes of the accident are currently under investigation and charges have not been filed.

Although Robinson was stopped in 2012 by highway police who were nonplussed by his Batmobile and garb, he won a great deal more affection and respect for his charitable activities. Sinai Hospital in Baltimore recently dedicated its “Race for Our Kids” charity event to Robinson. “Lenny gave so many hours to so many children,” race representative Kelly Melzer said. “It was so amazing to see and his impact will never be forgotten. He will be missed. We will continue to find different ways to reach as many children that need our care.”
