J.J. Watt Dresses as Batman for Visit to Kids Hospital

Houston Texans defensive end, J.J. Watt is a larger than life superhero in the eyes of many NFL football fans.

This time, however, Watt dressed up as an actual superhero, the Caped Crusader, to surprise many and bring joy to kids at the Spirit of Halloween event at Texas Children’s Hospital.

Check out the video from the Houston Texans, and the pictures below.

Watt would certainly strike fear in the hearts of criminals, standing at 6′ 5″ and weighing 289 lbs. But, he just as easily brought smiles to the faces of little kids struggling with illness.

The full feature on J.J. Watt’s visit will air on NBC’s “Weekend Today.”

Well done, Mr. Watt, well done.
