Zebra-Man and the Zebra Batman
OK, so there's this guy who calls himself Zebra-Man who is terrorizing Gotham City with the strange force powers he exhibits. He can force open vault doors, tip water towers and shove everyone nearby away from him at will - handy power if you're feeling claustrophobic at a party. Batman appears but after tracking this guy to his hideout Bats is exposed to the same energy, but without the control belt Zebra-Man wears. So Batman is basically walking around expelling everything and anyone he comes close to. He finally figures out a way to bring himself and Zebra-Man together by turning a manhole cover into an electro-magnet - not sure exactly how he did that. Grabbing Zebra-Man's belt he basically turns them both off, energetically that is, and the case is solved. When I was going to do these figures I decided I needed to do them both at the same time. Zebra Batman is made using a Superpowers Collection Batman figure and Zebra-Man uses a JLA Atom figure, appropriately painted with the control belt. The stripes were actually kind of fun and were done with a paint brush.
