LEGION TOYS: Batman (DC Universe Classics)


When the cold wind howls and the wild wolf growls the light of day grows dim; From the Earth's dark bowel in a cape and cowl stalks a figure solemn and grim. His visage is awesome. It's sheer terror to cross him, the evilest men blanch with fear. But the innocent praise him, no villain can faze him, 'tis justice and law he reveres. The Batman. Classic Detective Batman that is.
