26-year-old Zoltan Kohari wanted to make a difference in his southern Slovak hometown of Dunajska Streda, so he equipped himself with an all-leather Batman suit and some homemade gadgets and started patrolling the streets.
So far, his adventures have involved literally cleaning up the streets, not beating up bad guys. He also helps the elderly and reports any suspicious activity he spots while on patrol. His next mission will be keeping an eye on bouncers at local clubs to make sure they don't get rough with customers.
"I have decided to do good for the people. I take care of order and help clean up the environment so we can keep living on this planet," he said.
Kohari's "Batcave" is a formerly run-down apartment that he restored after spending 8 months in jail last year, and being Batman is his way of redeeming himself.
"He's had a tough life but he is very dependable and we like him. He helps us out, keeps an eye on public order, and he is a hero for my son and his schoolmates," said Jana Kocisova, one of Kohari's neighbors.
With Kolhari and "Brazilian Batman" André Luiz Pinheiro, we might have a real-life Batman, Inc. on our hands.
