While Batman is heralded as one of the most realistic superheroes to date, there is one thing that has never quite made complete sense: his utility belt. The concept of it is fine-you have a belt riddled with all kinds of gadgets and toys that would help you be prepared for every kind of situation imaginable. However, the execution can sometimes be a bit ridiculous. It's odd having the Dark Knight fitting some strangely large objects into the belt then whipping them out at a moment's notice.
Most of those ridiculous moments can be blamed on comic book logic, and once you get past that, the utility belt can be pretty awesome. After all, it houses his batarangs, tranq darts, explosive gel, etc. If you've played any of the Arkham games, you know just how impressive the Bat's arsenal is. It only adds to him being one of the best superheroes in the DC Universe, and the most feared.
However, there are some gadgets the Caped Crusader carries that make a lot less sense. Those that have seen the '60s show with Adam West know exactly what I'm talking about. While the movies and comics now portray him as an undeniable force of combat, in the past that wasn't always the case. This resulted in seeing some of the weirdest gadgets that only made us ask, "Why did he carry that?" So whether it be from the '60s show or the comics, here are 10 strange gadgets you didn't know that Batman carried on his utility belt.
10 Shark Repellent
7 Glue Grenades
3 Anti-Penguin Gas Pills
Okay, okay, guys, grow up a bit and stop chuckling. We finally we have another one of those devices that is simply a regular device with "Bat" at the front of it. This time, it is a harpoon gun. He's used it in a fight against Superman, and even given a batpoon to the young Robin. As ridiculous as the name is, I guess it gets the job done, whatever that job may be. You have to really hand it to the writers though for being able to come up with this 100 percent original gadget for the Bat to have in his arsenal.
