Coming to us from Mighty Jaxx is this awesome Batman Yellow Lantern XXRay figure. Just like Mighty Jaxx’s other DC XXRay figures, it’s made of vinyl and stands at roughly 4 inches tall. Oh, and it’s completely bad ass.
If you’re unfamiliar with the look of this Batman Yellow Lantern XXRay figure, the outfit stems from the Forever Evil comic run that was written by DC’s Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch. After the Sinestro Corps. had been defeated on Earth, Batman pocketed one of the villainous Yellow Power Rings for potential future use.
It turns out, as usual, Batman was right in keeping the powerful relic. He later utilized the Yellow Power Ring to combat the Crime Syndicate, an evil version of the Justice League from another dimension. With it he was able to take down Power Ring, the group’s evil version of Green Lantern, and looked like an absolute boss in this outfit while doing so.
For a more comprehensive history on the Yellow Power Ring, here’s this snippet from the DC Wiki:
“When the Guardians of the Universe discovered that Sinestro, the Green Lantern of Sector 1417, had used his ring to take control of his homeworld of Korugar, the Guardians expelled Sinestro from the Green Lantern Corps and banished him to the planet Qward in the Antimatter Universe. On Qward, Sinestro met the Weaponers of Qward, and told them of the Yellow impurity, how the Green Lantern Rings could not affect anything colored yellow. Having been working on a weapon similar to the power rings for several millennia, the Weaponers of Qward developed the Yellow Power Ring, designed to project yellow energy and take advantage of the Green Lanterns weakness.
With the establishment of the Sinestro Corps, those who are given membership in the organization are given a Yellow Power Ring and Yellow Power Battery, which is connected to the Yellow Lantern Central Power Battery on Qward.”
