Notable appearance: The Dark Knight

Batman’s gadgets aren’t always about grace and style; sometimes they just have to get the job done. Take the pneumatic mangler for instance. Attached to his right gauntlet, this bulky cutting tool can extend over Batman’s palm, allowing him to slice through solid objects such as doors and vehicles. We’re first introduced to it in The Dark Knight when he uses it to punch a hole through the side of the Scarecrow’s van as he tries to flee after a drug bust. It might not look like much, but it’s got it where it counts.
