Ready to kick the big blue boy scout’s rear? Prepared to go all out in a final battle with the government’s tool in a dreary near-future Gotham City?
The Dark Knight Return’s version of Batman is my favorite interpretation of the crime fighter. I got the graphic novel just before the 1989’s film release. Frank Miller’s art and story about a retired Bruce Wayne coming back to fight harsher threats in a world that has fetishized superheroes was a trip for my young mind.
At that time, the big two’s superheroes were still all straight and narrow, rarely delving into such bleak subject matter. To see Batman fight Superman to the death was something new and impactful. That was until it was done to death, and Zack Snyder ruined the moment on film.
Regardless, McFarlane toys is tackling the Bat in his armored suit, as seen in the final pages of the comic. It captured all the details and more, even the huge barrel chest piece. Check it out below.
