Here on DCComics.com, we write about Batman a lot for one simple reason—we love the Caped Crusader and his colorful crew of friends and foes. We’ve grown up with the same Batman movies, comics, TV shows, video games and toys that you have. Therefore, we’re kicking off Batman’s 75th Anniversary Celebration with a special event here on the site. Not just a week of Batman, but a full month.

With fun, uniquely different takes on some of DC Comics most beloved heroes and villains, it was only a matter of time until we gave the champions of Infinite Crisis the DC Collectibles action figure treatment.
