TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A leather suit can make a normal dude feel like a superhero.

Any guy who’s ever wished they were Batman, or at least that they could dress like him, can now patrol the streets in superhero style thanks to Universal Design Replicas.

The company creates leather remakes of costumes worn by heroes like Batman, Iron Man, and Wolverine in the movies that can be worn as regular outerwear or as motorcycle suits.

Creator Davis Pea says guys who grew up reading comic books love dressing up like caped crusaders and showing their passion for a character.

Some write Pea telling him how much they actually feel like the real Batman when they’re out and about wearing his designs.

However, the duds shouldn’t inspire anyone to go into vigilante crime fighting.

Pea explains, “The suits are not bullet proof. It wouldn’t be a good idea.”
