Any true Batman fan probably has a cheap rubber cowl sitting in their closet somewhere.  The thing smells bad, tears at your skin when you put them on, and the rubber ears don’t stand up right… or so I’ve heard…

This year, make the smile on the face of your Bat-Fan shine brighter than the Bat Signal with the actual cowl from Batman Returns.

The Bat-Cowl has been professionally crafted from the original prop worn in Tim Burton’s 1992 film. Composed of sturdy fiberglass, the non-wearable Bat-Cowl hangs on a utility-belt-styled display stand.

The lot is limited to 500 units, and you’re going to have to drop $475 for it, but this replica is so uber-cool, simply having it on display will up the geek cred of the geek in your life by a million and one.

    If I can’t wear it to right wrongs then it is of no use to me.

    The replica of Captain America’s shield is only $400 and is made of metal. And I can use it to right wrongs by throwing it at bad people like muggers and those people at Wal-Mart who block the aisles.
