There are few Batman stories as iconic and legendary as Frank Miller’s seminal The Dark Knight Returns. Published inn 1987 by DC Comics and depicting an older, grizzled and retired Caped Crusader returning to enact bloody punishment on the criminals of Gotham City, The Dark Knight Returns has remained a fan-favorite since its initial publication. Iron Studios has announced a new 1/6 scale statue that not only captures that story perfectly, but looks damn good doing it.

One of the most memorable scenes in the comic book is that of the recently returned Batman beating down the Mutant Leader, the head of a gang called Mutants that has been terrorizing Gotham into submission. 

Despite how awesome it is, the moment rarely gets merchandise based on it. Instead, most companies concentrate on the showdown later in the series between the Dark Knight and Superman. Thankfully, Iron Studios has recognized that oversight and corrected it in the best possible way.

The injured and bleeding hero standing atop the defeated Mutant Leader looks great. The overly-muscled Batman of Frank Miller’s artwork has come alive. Iron Studios’ sculptors and painters are magicians as far as I am concerned and they continue to impress me with this beautiful rendition of the Batman.

The base with the defeated Leader lying in junk looks amazing as well, basically counting as an additional figure. Going above and beyond seems to be the norm for Iron Studios and I can’t think of another company that would have recreated this moment from The Dark Knight Returns in such a magnificent way.

“In a bleak future, a giant known as the Leader, of the so-called Gang Mutants, voracious and obsessed with violence, was responsible for manipulating the youth of Gotham to bring crime to a level of violence never seen before. He called Batman a coward and challenged him to a one-on-one fight. After a first defeat, an experienced and strategic Dark Knight chooses a mud hole as a ring for his rematch, seeking to slow the villain’s movements. Even though he is old and has just come out of retirement, and facing a bigger rival at the peak of his physical condition, reaching precise weaknesses, inflicting several serious injuries, the old Batman, even injured, comes out victorious.”

“Again inspired by the historic miniseries written and designed by acclaimed author Frank Miller, “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns”, Iron Studios proudly presents its “Batman Statue The Dark Night Returns – DC Comics – 1/6 Diorama – Iron Studios”, one more work of art derived from this iconic HQ in one of its most remarkable moments, featuring the triumphant Dark Knight standing on the defeated Mutant Leader on a base that replicates the peculiar terrain of combat, now in the Diorama 1/6 scale series, bringing an extra interchangeable head as a bonus.”
