He was discovered riding his three wheeled motorbike on a highway recently by a smart phone user.

The video went viral in Japan and was soon picked up by the international press. The BBC tracked him down for and interview and Yahoo! got come photos.

DC Comics is not so popular in Japan so it’s nice to see superheroes from the US make their way across the Pacific.
Then again, we don’t really know where Gotham City is, do we?
