The San Diego Comic-Con kicks off later this week, and as is the case each year, there'll be no shortage of giddy, costumed fanboys and girls roaming the halls. There's no denying that some of the getups people wear to the con are pretty spot-on, but fans of Batman might be interested in this one, which looks to be dead accurate, as well as being somewhat functional.
Universal Designs is developing a set of motorcycle leathers that's an exact replica of the Batsuit donned by Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight. Included in the leather-and-kevlar suit are the jacket, pants, boots and gloves. You even get the ninjatastic arm gauntlets. How cool is that?

You'll need to supply your own cape, cowl and helmet (having a trustworthy butler, billions of dollars, plus an inventor friend and colleague with a healthy sense of discretion will help immeasurably). For maximum impact, you should probably build a fully-functional Batpod in your garage, too. Just think of the entrance you can make in San Diego.

      I would cut out a hole where my genitals would be so i could have consensual sex with a lady.

      although, wearing this would greatly hamper my chances of having sex with a lady.

      This is aimed at an age group who aren't allowed to drive. If I would pull up outside a bar in something like that... I would end up with an exhaust pipe berried deep in me.

      Even better in a black Suzuki GSX-R 1000
      ... or a turbo Hayabusa

        If by bad bad ass you mean looking like a complete tool that will never get laid.

        They're just mad because they don't have the self confidence to do it.

        • 5 Years Ago
        No, those are pecs. Go put some time in at your local gym, now!

      This could get ugly real fast - "...with Heavy-duty 4 way stretch Spandex..." sounds to me like we'll witness some very un-Batman like XXXL sizes.

      Wearing these on a Ninja 250 would look so bad ass.
