If Batman as an obsessive compulsive hoarder wasn't bad enough, then wait until you get a load of this guy.

Italian artist Francesco de Molfetta recently showcased a series of sculptures at the "New Idols" exhibition at Don Gallery in Milan, Italy. The name of the gallery isn't entirely accurate, as de Molfetta's sculptures focus entirely on past icons such as Batman, King Kong, E.T., Barbie, Superman and more - just uglified. It's hard to say whether or not these are loving tributes, but they're certainly crafted with plenty of love, care and talent.

Still, that's one off-the-rails Batman.I can't help but look at this sculpture and imagine him as the hockey pad-wearing impostor from "The Dark Knight" after Bruce Wayne tells him what's what. If I were that guy, I'd probably go grab a few dozen ice cream treats, suit up in an old Michael Keaton era Batman costume and cry myself to sleep, too!
