If you’ve ever read any of the Elseworlds trade paperbacks from the DC Universe, then you have seen your favorite heroes in “What if” scenarios – like Superman being a hero in Gotham while Batman is in Metropolis, or Batman in the Civil War – that sort of thing. Well, if you like your Batman from the Victorian era, check out this Steampunk Batman gun.
We’ve seen plenty of Steampunk weapons before, but I have never seen one specifically made for the Caped Crusader. This gun was originally a Mattel Triple Barrel Grapnel Gun, which can fire soft projectiles, a la Nerf.
It was painted up with copper and given some Bat decorations by Nerfenstein. I love the detail and now I want to see some Elseworlds stories on the big screen. We can start with Batman in Victorian London, packing this gun.
