Hello Gotham, my old friend… How It Should Have Ended takes a break from fixing movie endings to bring us a little song – a parody of the 1964 classic The Sound of Silence, with Batman taking on vocal duties. If Batman is Simon, then Robin must be Garfunkel, right?

Fools’ Paradise has an ongoing series of comic book character action figures that come with a kiddie ride version of their vehicles. Their latest batch features Bane with his stolen camo Tumbler Batmobile and a glow-in-the-dark Joker in his parody Batsuit.
