WASHINGTON, DC (AP/WUSA9)-- The Baltimore County caped crusader, dressed in a Batman superhero costume, won't be saving the day for some sick kids at hospitals after a theater shooting in Colorado, according to Associated Press.

Lenny B. Robinson, who's known for dressing as the caped crusader, says Children's hospitals in St. Louis and Chicago canceled his visits out of concern that the Dark Knight's visits would scare kids and stir up thoughts about the massacre.

In Colorado on July 20, 24-year-old James Holmes went on a shooting spree in a theater during the midnight premier of "The Dark Knight Rises." . Twelve people were killed and nearly 60 people wounded.

Robinson has been handing out Batman paraphernalia for 20 years to up-and-coming superheroes, who are actually children fighting cancer and other diseases.

His cross-country Batman tour started six weeks ago.
