Knight Models Reveals a New The Batman Who Laughs, The Commissioner, and Psycho-Pirate for Batman Miniature Game
Knight Models has revealed three new miniatures for their Batman Miniature Game. Two are brand new while one is a new sculpt for the third edition of the game. All three are expected to go on sale on May 15.
Psycho-Pirate had a role in writer Tom King’s recent run on Batman. The character has a mask that is able to manipulate emotions.
The Roger Hayden version of the character was created by Gardner Fox and Murphy Anderson debuting in Showcase #56 in June 1965.
Psycho-Pirate is equipped with the Medusa Mask which allows the wearer the power to project emotions onto others.
The Commissioner is an infected Commissioner James Gordon. Gordon was infected with The Batman Who Laughs’ toxin creating a corrupted version of the character. The Batman Who Laughs infected six heroes, Gordon is one of them. The storyline has been playing out in the newly relaunched Batman/Superman series.
The final new sculpt is The Batman Who Laughs who not only features his Rabid Robins but also a new corrupted Damian Wayne.
The Batman Who Laughs is one of the best new characters in the DC Universe debuting in The Casting #1 in September 2017. The character was created by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.
The Batman Who Laughs comes from the Dark Multiverse on Earth -22. In this reality, Batman kills the Joker but is infected by a Joker Toxin which he’s unable to fight off and becomes a twisted Batman. One with all of the brilliance of Batman/Bruce Wayne but also the sadism and destructive nature of the Joker.
