They may scale great heights almost every day, but a group of local window washers took their superhero-like qualities to a whole new extreme. Millennium Building Services (MBS) workers scaled all nine stories of Randall Children's Hospital dressed as superheroes as way to surprise the kids inside.

MBS has cleaned Legacy Health hospital windows for 22 years, and workers say there is just something about watching all of the kids inside as they climb the building that strikes a chord in them all.

 “Yes it’s exciting and something different for us,” said Flash as he looked at Batman. Superman chimed in, “We’ve handled this duty before, but not in capes and tights.”

The team of window washers-turn-Avengers descended over the edge of the hospital, almost as if they were summoned by each of the smiling souls who waited beyond the glass for help to arrive.

“I see him, it’s Superman and he’s washing windows with Iron Man, Spiderman, Flash and Batman,” shouted 4-year-old Cameron as he pointed at the windows of the fourth floor patient lounge.

After the workers got done washing the windows, some of the kids got a chance to meet the superheroes before they took off.
“It’s so fun to see the kids smile. I would do this every day if I could,” Iron Man concluded.
