The Suit of Sorrows is the oldest in Batman’s possession. It was constructed during the Crusades of 1190 and was given to the pure-hearted St. Geoffrey de Cantona. The suit was believed to be enchanted, and though it grants the user enhanced abilities, it also makes them more violent. 

The suit was given to Batman by Talia Al Ghul, and though it gave him superhuman abilities, it made him more violent, so he kept it locked away.

The Order of Purity forged the suit from the armor and breastplate of their fallen soldiers. Eerie.

Powers:

  • Enhanced Strength
