Many decades ago in an old Batman comic (see Detective Comics #241), Dick Grayson publicly hurt his arm. Batman was concerned that if Robin appeared in public with the same injury, then both their secret identities might be compromised. So, Batman wore a different colored costume each night until Robin healed. He knew that people would be so distracted by his cleverly colored costumes that no one would notice Robin’s injury. No, really. Check for yourself.
Funko has been releasing the variously hued Batmen across their product lines, and now it is the Pint Size Heroes’ turn.
This Batman is part of a Wal-Mart Mystery Box and is actually the only mysterious thing in the box – you get one figure per box and it could be any of the colors. The other items in the box don’t vary.
I finally found a Mystery Box and am very happy with my wacky-colored Batman. I actually think he’s the color of peanut butter (creamy, of course) which is one of my favorite foods. It makes me chuckle to call him Peanut Butter Batman. And yes, I am actively trying to get out more.
