Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a big comic book fan. Last August, he donned a Spiderman mask after a goal and he's previously had the Batman logo shaved into his head, and placed on his car. Today, along with Marco Reus, he celebrated a goal against F.C. Schalke by dressing up as Batman, with Reus playing the Boy Wonder, Robin.

Reus only had a tiny mask to put on, but Aubameyang's effort was much more involved. It featured a cape and cowl, which makes you wonder, did he play with that stuffed in his shorts all game? The goal came in the 77th minute, for crying out loud. Dortmund added two more goals to beat Schalke 3-0.
