Jack Asbury III – dubbed the Batman of Spring Hill – decided to walk three-year-old Lydia Calculli after her mom shared that her daughter had been coming home with bruises on her face.
‘At first it was very minor and I thought it happened just playing around, so I let it go,’ Erica Calculli explained to WTSP.

The concerned mother took photos after Lydia came home with a red and black swollen eye in August.
He saw a post that the girl’s mother, Erica Calculli, shared to Facebook stating that her daughter was being bullied at her Spring Hill, Florida, school
Calculli continued: ‘She told me that “a bunch of girls and one boy hit her and a girl threw a shoe at her eye”.’
Worried about her daughter’s noticeably changed behavior, she reached out to social media for help.
And like the great ‘Bat Signal,’ Asbury saw the post and immediately jumped into action.
‘I made a new friend today. This is Lydia,’ the Spring Hill Bat said in a August 28 post that has been shared just under 600 times.
‘I was heart broken when I saw her mothers post she was being bullied in school.To the point she didn’t want to go. So I reached out and asked if I could walk her to school. Hopefully this will help her over come the fear knowing who has her back.’
Included in the post were adorable pictures of Lydia and the Florida superhero walking hand-in-hand into the school.
Asbury even purchased a cute Supergirl costume for Lydia to wear.
The EMT told Yahoo Lifestyle that the young girl was ‘shy and nervous’ when they first met. She eventually came out once she realized Asbury had a gift.

‘A little boy came to Lydia as soon as we walked into school this morning and said “hi best friend Lydia” took her hand, and walked her to class,’ she said.
‘Seriously made me cry. Thank you so much for being there for my baby!’

‘This fundraiser is going to help me help others,’ he said on Facebook. ‘Its going to allow me to do more in the community for children and the families. Also it will help me become the best Batman that I possibly could!’
