Who are they going to send after you?
The Dark Knight Returns is perhaps one of the most important comics in comic book history. And receiving a dedicated action figure alone is a joy but having it so accurately sculpted makes me feel happy that I was a collector.

Most people today think of Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy when hearing “The Dark Knight Returns” but This comic is what inspired many aspects of not only the Nolan trilogy but the Batman VS Superman from the DCEU. It is also one of the first comic books that made Batman more real. Meaning, a mortal man in the world surrounded by super-powered beings.
Look at that! The first Batman who has defeated Superman is here. Yes, it all happened here. When an old mortal man used his mind, strategy, and technology to take down a godly being. This is when Batman became a LEGEND in the superhero comic book fandom.
Batman comes with two head sculpts, five pairs of hands, and A LOT of Batarang. Total of eight pieces!!
One thing I respect with Mafex is that their sculpting and proportion. It is spot on. And another thing I praise is that they do not simply do Batman and stop making other characters from that line. We are getting the Joker, a total of 3 different Batman, and even a Robin. And I am very sure we will be getting Superman and Armored Batman too.
This time around, the figure’s upper torso and arms joints are very good. But the knee and ankle are a bit soft. And because it is a top-heavy figure, you do need to care, or else he will fall quite easily.
Man! This figure was such a blast! The sculpt, the detail, the proportion, and the articulation, it’s all amazing! Oh, and do not forget that awesome cape!!
LOOK AT THAT CAPE!!
The body is a very simple design yet because Mafex added not only the wrinkles but also a unique texture on the suit to add detail to make it not too plain at all.
I love Batman and this one is surely a version not for everyone but for a comic reader from the 80s, this is one of the most iconic Batman as well as a historically important one that I cannot ignore. I know the HUSH Batman is more popular because it’s the default design for modern Batman and it’s Jim Lee. Who will say NO to Jim? But for me, I prefer this classic version. That all said if they do offer us the further classic Norm Breyfogle version, that will be my go-to. And I know. It won’t happen.
