Did you know that Batman once wore a Zebra costume? The G-Man from Comic Vine has uncovered an old 1960 comic in which Batman looks very black and white, and stripey. Very interesting!
It turns out, the zebra stripes are “lines of force,” originally invented by the villain Zebra Man. While trying to apprehend him, Batman gets zapped and temporarily becomes Zebra Batman! Well, well, you learn something new every day.
As G-Man points out, they never made a Zebra Batman action figure, unfortunately. Come on, DC, the fans are waiting. This costume would be a must-have for collectors.
