Batman just lost the theme song jam to the Man of Steel. While strumming in the park, his dissonant ukulele rendition of the 1960s theme was quickly upstaged by Superman playing his infinitely more majestic signature tune on flaming bagpipes while riding a unicycle.

As you’ll see in the video below, the Dark Knight was pissed.

build a bear batman and superman

In a fitting follow-up to this adorable Build A Bear Wonder Woman, Build-A-Bear Workshop is releasing new Superman and Batman bears, costumes, and even a bear-sized Batmobile.

I’d buy the Batmobile over anything, to be honest. If someone doesn’t make Wonder Woman drive that bad boy, life isn’t worth living anymore.

You can get the new bears and accessories at Build-A-Bear Workshops or online at buildabear.com.

Check out the Batmobile and themed bears below.

Medieval-style costumer Samuel Lee of Prince Armory has dazzled us with this Kryptonian armor design inspired by Man of Steel. Y’know, the Superman film everybody loves to hate.

Believe it or not, this armor design is actually made from leather. It feels like it could well have been lifted from concept art for the scenes of the movie set on Supe’s doomed homeworld. Honestly, it’s just stunning.

Continue on to check out photos of the suit in its entirety.

We’re big fans of Takayas custom jewelry around here. Not only do they make amazing geeky wedding and engagement rings, but they always seem to be super enthusiastic about the projects.

Meagan and Mario approached us with their ideas for a custom Superman and Konami wedding ring set, it was impossible not to be excited. We’re so happy to be able to share their story.

After the consultation, both of them knew the rings had to incorporate the Superman symbol, but Meagan also wanted to incorporate a butterfly design and Mario wanted his wedding band to be based on the Konami Code.

Meagan’s Superman and butterfly wedding ring set may be one of our favorite projects to date because it’s a perfect representation of the balance we try to strike when designing pieces with comic book references. If interpreted too literally, superhero designs can quickly become the kryptonite of a timeless engagement ring. So for her ring set, Takayas decided to build both of her rings using the silhouette of a butterfly as the main focus, and for the engagement ring, he subtly added the Superman “S” into the setting.

Takayas said they had a lot of fun with the groom’s ring.

Mario’s ring was a lot of fun because his band is actually a series of video game controller D-Pads linked together. His ring is based on the popular cheat code that appears in many Konami video games. If you look closely, you’ll notice that in place of an arrow, each button is represented with the Superman symbol’s diamond shape. The B and A buttons are in the back of the band.

Somehow, they made these unusual combinations work as both individual rings and as a set. Take a closer look at the designs in the images below.

I love when cosplayers take characters outside their traditional roles for super viral photo ops. So Superman is totally smooching Arrow. Wonder Woman looks okay with it, but Black Canary looks piiiiiiissssed.

Wonder Woman, a.k.a. Laura, posted this fantastic kiss on her Deviant Art page where she was able to catch the moment between this super hunky Superman (her boyfriend) and Arrow. They have an awesome combined cosplay page called JessoLauraRex for all their adventures together. And side note, Black Canary and Arrow are actually engaged in real life. That would explain the look. He’s in so much trouble!

DC Comics characters are no stranger to costume changes and artist Stephen Byrne has thrown his hat into the ring with new looks for Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman that appear to take some cues from Denis Medri’s work. That resulted in this Trinity image, which combines the three perfectly (though the Wonder Woman design is our favorite).

See more of his art after the break.
