Gearhart's Law, or the assumption that all strange news has ties to New Jersey, proved true once again last Sunday night, when the world lost another Good Samaritan. 

Lenny B. Robinson, originally of Bergen County, was known for dressing up as Batman and visiting hospitalized kids in the Baltimore-Washington area. Each year he reportedly spent over $25,000 of his own money on Batman-themed items, many of which were gifts for those children.

His life was cut short, however, while checking the engine of his Batmobile replica on the side of Interstate 70 in Maryland.

Check out the video below to see Batman get pulled over while cruising to a hospital in his Batmobile replica a few years ago.

Robinson's legacy proves there are superheroes in real life, too, and I'm glad to say he's from our state. Rest in peace, Batman.
