He’s more used to battling the Joker with Robin by his side, but Batman quelled a mass brawl in a chip shop – with Buzz Lightyear to back him up.
This time the Caped Crusader was not billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne but pub landlord Steve Lowe.
In scenes similar to the classic Only Fools And Horses episode, the 53-year-old was at a fancy dress party in The Horse And Jockey pub when he was called to remove 20 rowdy youths in The Stop Inn chippy next door.
Mr Lowe, who is 1.87m (6ft 2in) tall and weighs 108kg (17st), swung into action while part-time barman Shane Lee, 30, was outside dressed as the Toy Story favourite.
Batman’s costume, packed with extra ‘muscles’, seemed to disarm his opponents who could hardly believe their eyes.
