Artist imagines what superheroes’ poop might look like


Toshib Bagde has gone where few other artists dared with his series “Super-Heroes Poop Lab,” envisioning what the excrement of some of the world’s most famous do-gooders might look like. Hey, it’s a crappy job, but someone has to do it.

These li’l ‘Batman v Superman’ figures usher in dawn of cuteness


If dialogue like “Tell me … do you bleed?” is too grim for your tastes, just imagine it being uttered by this cute pint-sized Armored Batman figure from Hot Toys’ upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lineup.

Previously glimpsed in photos from Toy Soul 2015, the Armored Batman and Superman Cosbaby Collectible Set will enable you to reenact the Bat-Signal scene from the trailer (a tiny Bat-Signal is included!), only maybe with a dramatically less-grave voice. Maybe something closer to baby talk.

Ford hopes to make a car with its own Batpod


Soon you may not have to be a billionaire vigilante to cruise around in a car with its own Batpod. Well, Batpod-like auxiliary vehicle.
