The trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have revealed there will be some truly epic battles playing out between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, but deep down there’s a part of me who would find it just as entertaining if the two battled it out like a pair of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.
But because I doubt that’s the kind of action Zack Snyder has in mind for his next superhero flick, I’m going to have to settle for Mattel’s updated take on its classic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots game where the robotic pugilists have now been replaced with Batman and Superman.
The goal of the $25 game, which has also been upgraded with electronic sound effects, is still the same as the original version—you’re trying to beat your opponent into submission. But instead of their heads eventually flying off, which would be pretty traumatic for kids to see, either character pops off their base in defeat when they’ve had enough of a pummelling.
