Alongside Superman, Batman & Robin are getting an upgrade with additional paint and upgraded capes and there’s a new look for The Joker. And if that isn’t enough to have you sliding down the Bat-Poles the Batrobot and Lord Death round out the wave. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Slide down the bat poles and explore these sensational new figures.
Sent to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton as a baby, Kai-El was found by farmers Martha and Jonathan Kent and raised as their son, Clark. As Clark grew up, the radiation from Earth’s yellow sun gave him extraordinary powers, which he kept hidden. Now fully grown, he uses his powers to protect his adopted world of Superman.
Kapow! The debonair millionaire Bruce Wayne may seem like your average cool cat, but you would be wrong! With the flip of a Shakespeare head bust and… to the Batcave! Gotham City is filled with a rogue’s gallery of criminals eager to unmask the Batman, but they are thwarted by the Caped Crusader’s own clever ways.
“Holy Boy Wonder, Batman!” How lucky can orphan Dick Grayson get? He gets taken in by the wealthiest man in Gotham City, who just happens to be Batman. He gets to live in a mansion complete with cave, gets to kick villain butt, and cruises around in the world’s coolest car.
As a child, Bruce Wayne'” watched as his parents were brutally killed in Gotham City’s Crime Alley. Traumatized by their deaths, he devoted his life to becoming the world’s greatest weapon against crime-the Batman! He’s a master detective and an expert martial artist, but his greatest weapon is his mind.
Lord Death Man was a mysterious crime boss who could return from the dead. In one gruesome incident, he came back to life mid-autopsy. Lord Death Man also had superhuman strength and stamina, which he used to battle Batman, The Outsiders, and Talon. Ra’s al Ghul even sought to siphon the regenerative fluids from Lord Death Man’s body.
THE JOKER (JESTER)
Once a small-time crook, The Joker fell into a vat of chemicals that turned his skin white, his hair green, and his lips red-like a crazed clown. His crimes always involve pranks and jokes ending with twisted punchlines that are only funny to The Joker. He may look like he’s clowning around, but this guy is bad news for Batman™ and Gotham City!
