Batman is the undisputed king of cool superhero weapons, so a recreation of his iconic batarang is overdue. This batarang is much larger than it's comic book counterpart, but every bit as functional.

This boomerang was made by Victor Poulin, an expert boomerang maker. The batarang is made from 10-ply Finnish birch and is 25-inches wide. While the batarang is quite a bit larger than Batman's, it is far less damaging due to it being made out of rounded out wood and not sharp metal. Also, Batman's batarangs often get stuck in things or don't come back, which is another issue you won't have to deal with.

The design is very close to the actual batarangs in the comic book and movie and the finish is clean and smooth. Even if the boomerang never came back, it would be an amazing testament to a very sleek superhero weapon. Stats for Real-Life Superhero Weapons Trending: Older & Mild
