Batman’s Strongest Batsuit Is DC’s Best-Kept Secret
Batman has a Batsuit for almost every occasion, but recently DC revealed Batman has been working on a new suit that may be his strongest ever.
Spoilers for Batman #129 ahead!Batman is known for his ability to plan ahead for any situation, as such the Dark Knight has a whole suite of Batsuits at his command for any problem that may arise, but one suit is his best-kept secret yet.
Batman always does his best to prepare for the unknown, whether it be a suit made specifically for taking on Mr. Freeze, or a Batsuit that is so powerful it can withstand the conditions of Apokolips. Considering the extravagant lengths he’s traveled to, from Earth to outer space, to alternate planets, to alternate dimensions, Batman always needs to be prepared for whatever situation or enemy he finds himself against. Batman has even used former enemies as Batsuits.
Batman #129 by Chip Zdarsky and Jorge Jiménez sees Batman facing off against the antagonist Failsafe, a machine that Bruce created to stop him if he should ever go too far as Batman. Unfortunately, Failsafe has been falsely activated, meaning Bruce now has a killer robot wanting to stop him for nothing, really. While Failsafe is going over all the means Batman could use to stop him, from time travel to enlisting an alien race, one of the ideas Failsafe stops over is the “unfinished Omega Armor.” The fact Batman has yet another unfinished suit is especially noteworthy when considering just how many suits of armor Bruce has had, such as the Hellbat armor.
What Is The Omega Batsuit?
The Batsuits that Bruce has built over the years are nothing to laugh at. For example, the Hellbat armor was so powerful it allowed Bruce to fight and defeat a weakened Darkseid, all while allowing him to survive on Apokolips. It’s not actually the strongest suit Batman has worn. One of the strongest suits Batman ever had actually appeared in Justice League #25 by Scott Snyder and Jorge Jiménez, where readers see Batman wielding the unbelievably “Son Box Suit” created by the World Forager. This suit makes Bruce nigh invulnerable and also grants him the ability to control minds. Batman having a suit that is stronger than nearly the entire Justice League while also offering absurd powers such as mind control puts him above the level of vigilante and makes him DC’s most powerful hero.
It’s hard to imagine anything more powerful than the Hellbat armor or the Son Box Suit, but Batman may have just found it in whatever this “Omega Armor” is. Batman has had all kinds of suits, and each one has been significantly more powerful than the last. He’s had a suit to stop the Justice League, he’s had the Hellbat suit, the Son Box Suit, and now it seems DC is poised to reveal Batman’s most powerful Batsuit yet, in the Omega Armor.
