Batman saves Slovakia

Batman saves Slovakia
Batman saves Slovakia

People need help. This is often heard, particularly from politicians. In the meantime, while some say others do.

A small Slovak town of Dunajska Streda appeared on the front pages of major news editions around the world. The reason is Zoltan Kohari. A young man has glorified the town with his good deeds, which look like feat. Today in Slovakia Zoltan Kohari is better known as Batman.

26-year-old Kohari is not a superman. He is unemployed and had spent eight months in prison, according to Reuter. After discharge Zoltan could not find a place in the new reality and was about to commit suicide from despair. But at the last minute he decided that he could find a better use. So Zoltan settled in an abandoned house on the outskirts of Dunajska Streda, sewed a Batman costume and began to make the world a little cleaner.

In contrast with Batman from cinema, "Batman Zoltan" does not drive a Batmobile and fight in the dark and inhospitable streets of Gotem City. Following the Saint-Exupery’s precept he just cleans his planet.

Batman’s main activity is cleaning the streets and help elderly citizens in housekeeping. He doesn’t receive million-dollar revenues around the world, but only food from grateful residents.

It should be noted that a superhero with simple goals is not new in the world. For example, Seattle has recently got its own superhero "Phoenix Jones", who tried to prevent a fight by spraying pepper gas, but was arrested for that.

A number of European cities also have their own superheroes. In Prague it is Super-Vaclav, who keeps order and punishes owners of the dogs leaving droppings in prohibited areas. In St. Petersburg it is Petersburg Man and the Commandant, who are fighting swindlers. Perm also has its own superhero – Helpmen, who, according to, destroys pits on the road.
