It was quite lucky because I found it in a charity shop. Its a bit scuffed here and there and it didn't have the cape, so I made a quick one. After I while though I found an old black t-shirt I wasn't wearing and hey presto, better cape.
I have two smaller Batman figurines but my cameras not picking them up too well.
I read the Batman Forever novelization (by Peter David) a few days ago which was based of the screenplay more than the film. Without going into too much detail there was a bit more background on Nigma and his Bruce Wayne obsession, a bit more on the Graysons, Chase Meridian and Harvey Dent/Two-Face as well. The scenes were differently arranged but I think that most people know the film didn't follow the screenplay. Anyway, I did so it didn't make too much of a difference but being so used to the film it took a while to re-arrange everything in my head.
The dialogue, coupled with the thoughts and feeling of the characters included made a difference actually, gave more of a context to the lesser liked lines, although I didn't mind them. Some speeches and dialogue were different and knowing the film so well it was slightly hard to follow because my mind was playing the film version. Overall, even if some people think the dialogue in the movie was naff I felt it was far slicker than the SP/book and moved the story and action along better. I was a bit miffed it didn't have my favourite quote from the film though.
It's apparent from this that Carrey ad-libbed a lot, with certain comments and actions, but even so a lot of what he did do and say in the movies was in here too. Two-Face felt a bit more reserved and felt more complete with the background I mentioned earlier. Wayne and Dick Grayson are more tortured characters while Chase wasn't as fiery as Nicole Kidman's portrayal. Certain scenes are different, some of which add to the character or situations depending on how you see it, but I feel some would not have worked well for the movie.
In terms of the writing it was very expressive, a bit stilted at first but that's always the way when reading movie-based books but I do recommend checking it out.

I think Batman punishes himself by going through what he goes though.
He takes his anger and guilt out on criminals but it almost seems like he might kinda see himself get beaten up when he beats up the criminals, as if he's vicariously beating up himself. Sort of some kinda mental punishment for letting the only people that mattered in his life, for letting them die because of you. But in the name of justice.
Like I think he hates himself maybe..
I don't think I can explain it really well but I know how I feel.

I came across this and loved it. One of the tat guys I asked about it said it would incredibly increase the quality of the finished product if I could find the original source of the image. Assuming its a comic.

Anyone have any knowledge of the origin of this artwork? If by chance it is an actual comic panel and not just an individual's personalized stencil.
None of them sparkle!
