Supreme Knight Batman gets a The Dark Knight Returns inspired costume
Earlier today Mezco revealed that they’ll be a variant of their upcoming Supreme Knight Batman which is a part of their One:12 line. If you didn’t know already the Supreme Knight Batman completes Mezco’s One:12 Batman trilogy (one not based on any comic book or film) The first was the Ascending Knight Batman, followed up with the Sovereign Knight Batman and now concluding with Supreme Knight Batman.
This figure comes with all the same accessories as the upcoming original figure, though this one also comes with a Joker Doll which we haven’t seen yet. The only difference is the colors that are inspired by the Dark Knight Returns comic by Frank Miller. As he now has a blue cape and a yellow bat symbol. You could also say that the Supreme Knight batman is also inspired by the comic with the costume looking similar to the Dark Knights outfit near the end of the story.
I’m definitely looking to get the original Supreme Knight Batman which will be released next year as that looks like a fantastic looking figure and if I got a chance to pick this up I definitely would! I should mention that this figure will be released in May next year.
Anyway here’s the official press from Mezco
