Everything in life is better when you’re Batman. The glorious tech. A body trained to its physical peak. A job description that calls for punching out members of a certain superstitious, cowardly lot…dead parents…dead or previously paralyzed sidekicks…psychopaths bent on killing you…horrible love life that volleys between a seductive super-criminal with a thing for feline puns and the destructive daughter of an ancient cult leader bent on a new Eden…
Hey, is it too late to be a Green Lantern?
Here’s a picnic the ants can’t touch: Batman has unequivocally had the strongest video game track record. With Rocksteady and Warner Bros. wrapping up the storied ARKHAM saga earlier this year, we haven’t quite decided just how we’ll fill the void after three revolutionary titles and one “God love ’em, they tried” prequel.
After all, the drinking game where we see who can play SUPERMAN 64 the longest without breaking a controller has been banned for a few years, now.
On the bright side, thanks to the good people at Funko , we have these BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT POP! Vinyl Figurines to remember the good times by. In the classically high Funko standard, these renderings of the Arkham Knight, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and the Caped Crusader himself are all faithful tributes to Rocksteady’s now-iconic character designs that also happen to be just gosh-darn adorbs.
Until we get sweet Green Arrow or Aquaman game, they’re not the DC companions we deserve. They’re the ones we need.
