The Batman Head Design Patent
Shown here is the design patent for the Dark Knight's mask. Known secretly as Bruce Wayne, Batman is a one of a kind character. As one of DC Comic's most famous creations, Batman is among the few superheroes without super powers. But that never stops the Caped Crusader from bringing justice to his city of Gotham. The image of Batman is a powerful one - a billionaire playboy who moonlights as a costumed superhero instilling fear in criminals. Thus this patent prevents any cheap imitations, copycats, or "manbats."
