A Bloody Dark Knight Returns Statue Prepares to Operate

This is an operating table, and he’s the surgeon. Frank Miller‘s aging, angry Batman gets even more Frank Miller-y in a brand new statue from Iron Studios. Rendered in one-sixth scale, the 12-inch Dark Knight stands bloodied but unbeaten over a fallen Mutant Leader. Switch out heads for a bonus, even more punched portrait. The hand-painted, polystone Dark Knight Returns statue ships approximately a year from now, with payment plans available for those who may not have the full $649.99 upfront.

In the original four-issue comic miniseries, the Mutant Leader was among the most memorable additions to Batman canon. While other foes opposing a newly unretired Batman in the series had classic pasts — A “cured” Two-Face, “rehabbed” Joker, and Reagan-loving Superman — the new, shirtless shades-wearer led a gang that terrorized a futuristic Gotham City. After his defeat at the hands of Batman, many of the mutants rebranded as Sons of the Batman. In breaking their cult leader, Bruce Wayne effectively became the new one.
