A Twitter user by the name of Ryuuchan spotted something you don't see every day on the roadways of Japan's Chiba Prefecture last weekend: Batman, in broad daylight, riding around on a Batpod similar to the one from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.
The Batman costume looks spot-on, and while the Batpod isn't quite the design from the movies (it's got three wheels instead of two), it does look pretty doggone cool.
Listen, I understand wanting to do nice things for your kids, and that's great, but I have to imagine that as a parent, the absolute last thing you want to do is give your children something that makes them more like Batman.

German fan site BatmanNews has posted a new scan from a local "prospectus" from Mattel showing off a variety of toys from the company's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises line. Among the items are several scales of Batman and Bane figures, plus a number of remote-controlled Bat vehicles like an armored Batpod. The
Last Friday during the Pittsburgh filming of The Dark Knight Rises, Anne Hathaway's Catwoman stunt double crashed through an IMAX camera while cruising down the steps of Carnegie Mellon University on Batman's Batpod. According to TMZ no one
Since the release of "The Dark Knight" and even well before it, we have seen how feverishly fans of the film have latched onto Christopher Nolan's vision of Gotham City from the many Heath Ledger-inspired Joker cosplayers at conventions to ridiculous music videos. But o
It's the end of the week explosion! Our friend Seacord seems to have learned a lot from Adam "Packman" Jones and is trying to avoid any more conflicts with the law. As part of his community service, he has to talk to us about comics every week. W
Knowing many of you were justifiably stoked about seeing the Mach 5 for the first time, I couldn't resist posting a picture of the Batpod, the motorcycle variant of the Tumbler/Batmobile that will debut in next year's The Dark Knight from yesterday's Los Angeles Times.
