Local Batman is doing it for the kids
He calls himself Buffalo’s Best Batman, a title he won in a citywide contest in 2014. Attorney William Lorenz Jr. has been performing in costume for local charities, as well as comicons and other cosplay events, for more than five years. During the pandemic, Lorenz, now wearing a second mask, has been delivering food for such organizations as the Broadway Market and Massachusetts Avenue Project and has made appearances at birthday and other events for local children.
One of Lorenz’s most prominent involvements has been with Sweet Buffalo Rocks, a nonprofit group that first became known for distributing painted rocks throughout the community. It has raised thousands of dollars for children battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and has included events at Oishei Children’s Hospital.
