Hot Toys’ armoured Batman v Superman figure is ready to fight

Armoured Batman (19)

Let’s be honest here: Batman doesn’t stand a chance against Superman. Especially the Superman that was born out of Man of Steel. This was a last son of Krypton who could have an entire building collapse on him and walk away without a scratch. A super-powered vigilante who could probably sneeze the dark knight into orbit.

And as massively biased as I am towards the caped crusader, I don’t see Batman V Superman ending well for him. Of course, none of that matters because I’ll be at my local IMAX on opening day, ready to watch the Bat of Gotham go head to head with Superman in a suit of armour that could do with some Iron Man modifications.

And it’s that Frank Miller-inspired suit, that resonates massively with me. If you’ve ever read The Dark Knight Returns (Or watched!), you know exactly what I’m talking about. And the Hot Toys replica is ready to make Superman bleed:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
