Floral prints are the new black? For Batman's 75th anniversary, DC Comics had a team of artists and celebrities paint over the classic black mask and cape at the Cape/Cowl/Create exhibition. The likes of Zack Snyder, Will Arnett, and Lego artist Nathan Sawaya used everything from melted neon plastic to black fur to make over the outfit, which was modeled on the one from the upcoming Arkham Knight game.
