Batman is making headlines in Japan; particularly on social media, as the masked superhero is seen riding his custom batbike in full-costume, along the busy streets of Japan.
According to reports, the Dark Knight wanna-be is normally spotted all over the region during weekends. In fact, there were already reported sightings of him dating back three years ago. Just recently, the impersonator of the famous bat superhero was spotted in random areas including, Chiba prefecture and Akihabara district.
The caped crusader has not captured any villains, yet, he was given the alias of “Chibatman.”
The Internet is filled with random images of Chibatman already. One photo even shows him stuck in the boring reality of a traffic jam. Aside from that, there are lots of videos of him riding his customized three-wheeled bike as he speeds down the highways of the district. Though his vehicle is way too far from the real one, his bike is still inspired by the Batpod used in Christopher Nolan’s film, The Dark Knight.
Of course, this isn’t the real Batman or the Batman who appears in films. Despite all the information, Chibatman’s real identity is still unknown.
Here are some of Chibatman’s photos making rounds on social media.
