Which, I can only assume, is why Batman went there.
New 52 Justice League Target exclusive action figure set in the Brave and the Bold style got me thinking about that old line again, and I remembered I had yet to post about this very cool Astronaut Batman I have in my collection.
Cool and Collected months ago. Astro-Bat was originally part of a set that included a stupid non-canon alien creature (the set was called Batman vs. Alien :: Clash in the Cosmos) that I never had interest in, so I never bought it at retail. However I was always fond of this Batman variant. As I've said before, I have no problem with main character variants if they make sense from a story perspective, and Batman in a space suit makes plenty of sense for so many reasons I won't even waste time listing them.
The shiny blacks, subtle yellows and flat grey colors of this design are just perfect. No neon pink on this Batman! That bulky belt is great and it would have worked well on any Batman figure. It's also a neat bonus that Batman has a special space cowl instead of his head being a straight repaint.
Having them might have.
