J.J. Watt plays like a superhero. But on Tuesday, the Houston Texans defensive end dressed up like Batman during a trip to Texas Children's Hospital.

According to ESPN.com's Tania Ganguli, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is a frequent visitor at such places, but this visit was Halloween-themed, and apparently he was in character:

He spoke in a husky Batman voice as he shook hands with several adults. He posed with his batwings outstretched. He signed autographs. He participated in party activities: foosball, decorating pumpkins, etc.

On Sunday, the Today show will air a segment on Watt's visit. For now, check out some pictures:
