Batman Performer Shares Bittersweet Reason He’ll Always Keep Putting On The Mask

Jack Asbury III is a dad and Spring Hill EMT by day and Batman when he is not working. The Spring Hill, Florida, man has donned the legendary cowl and cape since 2015. He first wore the costume to escort a girl with bullies who was afraid to go to class. After the escort, the story went viral. Jack has been featured on newscasts, podcasts, and in print in Time Magazine. Since then, he has become a perpetual Batman performer, wearing the costume for worthy causes all around town. He won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Masked Miracles of Spring Hill, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was created to manage fundraising and bookings for Batman and several other superheroes who call Spring Hill home. The Spring Hill Spiderman often performs the same heroic deeds with and without Batman. The mission of these heroes is to provide comfort to children with disabilities and chronic illnesses and others who need a hero in their lives.

The organization aims to bring hope to children, especially those facing adversities. That includes any child needing help coping with struggles to experience the “magic of childhood.” In addition to Batman, other superhero performers call Spring Hill their base. In October 2023, Batman and Spiderman got coverage together in a local publication.

Unlike the real Bruce Wayne, Jack Asbury doesn’t have the advantage of unlimited funding to support the work of Batman. You can help by following the Batman performer on YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, and X. You can make donations and book appearances for events on the Masked Miracles website.

In his role as a Batman performer, EMT, or dad, Jack Asbury is the true definition of a superhero. Please share.
