Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you the future of Batman...
Cue the music Mr. Conductor!
"Cybernetic Batman" by Jason Kang is one of my favorite re-designs ever. His artwork truly shows that creativity and originality still lives on within the artist community. The creation of "Cybernetic Batman" all started when Jason was assigned a project for his 3D Fundamentals II class. He was asked to create a real life helmet model, as a big fan of Batman, Jason decided to create a futuristic/cybernetic Batman helmet. Creating a design that would emphasize the fear within his costume, a suit that was durable enough to take on high-powered foes and withstand hazardous environments.
Jason drew over 30 designs for the helmet:
As the helmet was still a work in progress, Jason created a (fake) cool video game cover for Cybernetic Batman in class:

My jaw dropped in amazement and aww as I saw the final product. I asked Jason on the phone, what's next for Cybernetic Batman? He tells me nothing really because he only did it for a class project. I remember my eyes twitching, veins on my forehead popping, having sweaty palms and thinking- "WHY!" After a brief, but fun conversation we ended up trading contact information. In the future all of you might see Cybernetic Batman come to life, that's all I can say.
