The 50 Coolest Batman Gadgets

42. Magnetic Batarang

Notable appearance: Green Lantern #16

The magnetic version of the classic Batarang is the perfect tool for the Dark Knight to take out robotic threats from throughout the DC Universe. As many of us know through unfortunate household accidents, it’s never a good idea to put a magnet near electronics, and this tool uses that principle as an offensive measure in Batman’s super-powered brawls.

In Green Lantern #16, by writer Geoff Johns, Batman uses this Batarang to scramble the high-tech armor of the Rocket Reds and magnetize their armor together, making them vulnerable to an attack by Black Lightning. Not even a pack of armored Russian war machines stand a chance against an unhinged billionaire with a few cool toys.
