A boy’s wish to be Batman inspired thousands of volunteers to help turn the streets of San Francisco into Gotham City today.
Five-year-old Miles, aka Batkid, has been fighting Leukemia since he was a baby. The Make-a-Wish Foundation helped organize an entire day catered to the caped crusader. Miles, whose cancer is in remission, rode in a Batmobile, rescued a damsel in distress and helped police capture the Riddler and the Penguin. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee even gave Miles a key to the city.

He was the nonstop trending topic of 2013: The gigs at the Super Bowl (with Jay Z) and the White House (with the president). The albums. The movies. And all those viral videos with Jimmy Fallon, including the one that’ll make you never want to tweet again. Amy Wallace talks to Justin Timberlake about the many moments that made him a MOTY, from the undeniably glorious ones to a couple that, frankly, he’s @!*$%# pissed off about.
