The Batman Who Laughs first appeared within the pages of Dark Nights: Metal. Proving to be a popular character, the evil counterpart, and alternate version of Batman came from the Dark Multiverse. It’s no surprise that merchandise featuring the character was to follow. Now, Sideshow present a new ‘Batman Who Laughs’ Q-Fig diorama by Quantum Mechanix.
As readers will already know, The Batman Who Laughs was created by two legends of the comic book world, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. This warped version of Batman is a hybrid of the caped crusader and his arch-nemesis, The Joker. Of course, you all know that, so here’s the lowdown on the Q-Fig…
Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One…
What if Bruce Wayne was transformed by Joker toxin and lost the moral code that kept him… human? The answer to that question is here in the form of The Batman Who Laughs Q-Fig Max Elite.
Rising from the pages of DC’s Dark Nights: Metal sagas, The Batman Who Laughs was created by comic industry icons Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo (also the creators of Batman: The Last Knight on Earth). This warped version of the Caped Crusader is a hybrid of the hero and his arch-nemesis, The Joker. After turning Robin into a mini-Joker, this evil Batman forces other children exposed to the Joker toxin into service as his “Rabid Robins”. Plotting to take over Gotham, The Batman Who Laughs is the ultimate expression of the Joker’s evil genius combined with Batman’s physical and mental prowess.
The Batman Who Laughs Q-Fig Max Elite
The piece stands tall among other Batman collectibles: At approximately 6 inches high, this Q-Fig’s commanding presence will take center stage in any collection. Featuring the Batman Who Laughs and three Rabid Robins, the nefarious foursome are surrounded by the Joker’s unmistakable laughter and this Batman’s weapon of choice – a deadly metal chain. Batman’s horrifying metal crown empowers him with the ability to discover the fears of his victims, resting just above the gleeful grin once belonging to the clown prince of crime.
The Batman Who Laughs Q-Fig Max Elite features the detail, quality, and storytelling collectors have come to expect from QMx. Find the Batman of your dreams (or nightmares) this winter.
This is a really smart little piece; I own a few Q-Figs myself and despite their size, there is a good amount of detail.
The Batman Who Laughs Q-Fig is now available for pre-order of the Sideshow website, with an expected shipping date of between July and September 2021.
