Batman made a special delivery to Clay County on Monday to dozens of kids who lost all of their toys in the historic flooding.

Jack Bass, 5, of Clay made a Facebook video asking the superhero to visit his hometown and make the kids smile.

“Batman, will you please? We need you right now,” he said in the video that made it’s way to Batman.

Jack has seen firsthand the devastation in his community and knew Batman was the one who could help.

“We need you and you came!” Jack exclaimed.

Residents said the visit brought a lot of excitement and helped lift spirits.

“It absolutely makes a big difference in their lives, seeing someone like him come out and just give away toys for free,” Marrisa Brown of Clay said.

Nicole Holcomb’s home was destroyed in the flood, along with her two children’s toys.

“It’s great that he’s coming out to do all of this,” she said.

“I’m happy,” her daughter said, holding her new stuffed animals.

Jack also got the last laugh with his older brothers.

“My brother’s didn’t think he was real, but he is real,” he said.

Batman had encouraging words in the face of adversity.

“Tragedy is the doorway to greatness pouring out of people,” he said.

A lot of the toys given away at Clay County High School were donated from other children and businesses. Batman also made a special delivery to kids in Richwood on Monday.
