“My whole life, I had been afraid of doing what I knew needed to be done. Afraid to give all of myself to the battle. The helmet showed me that my codes and rules were naive. That all that truly mattered was victory. And now I would finally take it for myself.”
The Merciless is depicted sitting atop his throne, a war god, a ruler, and one of The Dark Knights led by The Batman Who Laughs. The Batman from Earth -12, thinking that he lost Wonder Woman, the woman he loved at the hands of God of War, Ares, abandons his moral code. Devastated and enraged, consumed by vengeance, Bruce dons on Ares’ helmet, corrupting his mind, turning him into The Merciless.
In this art statue collectible, The Merciless an imposing iron-willed figure, sits on his throne, armed with the Godkiller sword. He can be seen ruminating over the portrait of Diana carved in stone, worn around the edges from the number of times he has looked upon this keepsake.
The Merciless comes in 2 versions, each spotting a colour variation of his armour. Ver A features the blue armour while Ver B features the red colour variation, which is also the first and initial colour scheme created by Riccardo Federici (Riccardo designed the concept for The Merciless in the Dark Nights: Metal comics. He also designed The Merciless concept for this piece)
