Billionaire businessman Donald Trump acknowledged he was a super hero to one of the kids he offered a helicopter ride to over the weekend at the Iowa State Fair.

{mosads}”Mr. Trump,” a 9-year-old said to the Republican presidential candidate aboard his self-branded private helicopter at the fair on Saturday, according to CNN, which reported on the video after the exchange surfaced online.

“Yes,” Trump replied.

“Are you Batman?” the boy asked.

“I am Batman,” Trump said, before the helicopter thundered upward.

The parents of the boy, whose three brothers were also at the fair, had not decided to vote for Trump before the event but had brought their young boys to see the reality TV star, according to CNN.

Trump opened his appearance at the raucous fair with a press conference in front of a group of children and his helicopter emblazoned with “TRUMP,” during which he said he’d spend $1 billion on his campaign.

The candidate, who flew to Iowa on his private jet before changing aircrafts, arrived at the event in his helicopter, which later interrupted Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) soapbox speech.

Trump is currently leading the 17-person GOP field in a Fox News poll out over the weekend.
