Sorry, Batman fans. You can’t carry your superhero weapons onto planes.

The TSA has reported an influx of people trying to bring aboard “batarangs,” which are sharp, bat-shaped weapons, NPR reports. 

The “batarangs” are being confiscated at airport security checkpoints.

The TSA said the weapons should be “placed in your checked baggage along with your grapple gun, bat-saw, collapsible bat-sword, and other utility belt items.”

The TSA said it occasionally has problems with people thinking they can bring superhero weapons on to a flight.
