The San Francisco Chronicle will produce special-edition “Gotham City Chronicle” newspapers as the city transforms for 5-year-old cancer patient Miles on Friday.

About 1,000 newspapers will be handed out at Union Square as people gather for the ‘Batkid’ Make-A-Wish event. Batman-fan Miles will battle crime around San Francisco, nabbing the Riddler and the Penguin, before receiving a key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee.

The Chronicle’s special page includes a story written by “Clark Kent” with the headline “BATKID SAVES CITY” and another story featuring less-criminally inclined penguins (from the California Academy of Sciences).

“It’s great to print nice news for a change, and Lois Lane was happy to come out of retirement for this special assignment,” said Chronicle Managing Editor Audrey Cooper.
