Super Punch pointed us to an excellent modded umbrella today: The Bat-Umbrella. Or as the original French site charmingly calls it, the "Batapluie!"

Realistically, it seems like this would do a pretty haphazard job of deflecting the rain on a cold, wet night in Gotham City, but that seems like a small price to pay for an umbrella this awesome. And besides, I'd probably spend a lot more time thrusting it at people and making proclamations about how I am, in fact, the night than I would actually trying to keep the rain off.
