The New 52 Katana stuns as one of DC’s Cover Girls

This fierce goddess’s namesake fits her perfectly — like the traditional Japanese weapon, Katana is a force to be reckoned with. Among this superheroine’s notable powers is the ability to capture and communicate with the souls of her victims after killing them. A normal Japanese girl who became a full-fledged samurai after training under a renowned master, Katana eventually melds her fierce forces with those of the Black Canary and Starling to become one-third of the Birds of Prey. Here, the swordswoman is displayed as a 9-inch statue designed by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, with sculpting done by artist Jack Mathews. The physical craftsmanship of this piece is phenomenal, and like its counterparts in the Cover Girls series, it has a limited run of 5200. She wields a sword rumored to contain the spirit of her dead husband, with which she converses in Japanese. Add Katana, one of the most captivating personages of The New 52, to your stronghold.

We wouldn't want to find ourselves at the other end of that lethal blade.

We feel sorry for whoever finds themselves at the other end of that lethal blade.


With a hood and tools bloodied from her encounters with the walking dead, MICHONNE comes to us direct from the San Diego Comic Con.

Armed with a katana and some unlikely (and sort of likely) tools, Michonne looks awesome as a 5-inch figure from McFarlane. While you’re waiting for Season 3 of the show to bring Danai Gurira’s take on the character, you can at least snag this toy and use it as a daily reminder of how awesome you could be if you were a little more like Michonne.
