A progression from Samurai, he has now risen to take on the title of ‘Shugo’. Translated as “(military) governor” or “protector”, Shugo is a title given to officials in feudal Japan who ruled over territories throughout the country. Decked in an upgraded armour designed for protection, Batman Shugo stands on top of the Bat-signal, one leg forward, ready to take on the source of the distress signal.
