Returning from the movies one night with their young son Bruce, Thomas and Martha Wayne were brutally slain in a random burglary. From that day Bruce Wayne vowed to avenge his parents and protect others from befalling their fate. Using his inheritance to become skilled in hand-to-hand combat and amass the latest crimefighting equipment, Bruce became the batman. Assisted by his butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and his ward, Robin, batman fights crime at it's level, becoming a dark spectre of the night that strikes fear into the hearts of evil-doers.
Batman comes with no accessories except a cloth cape. His cape is nicely cut out in bat-patterns at the bottom. By squeezing together his legs batman punches the heck out of criminals and malcontents.
A perennial favorite of toy makers and toy buyers, batman is nicely shown off here. Having more vehicles than any other hero, he was given both a batmobile and a batcopter for this line. His mold was slightly retooled for the Dark Knight Collection.
