Umbrellas are one of those things that you need once every decade.  How often are you caught in the rain and you really need an umbrella?  If it's raining I am not going to be out there that long, so an umbrella is pretty much useless.  And what about raincoats?  A rain coat is easier to work with than an umbrella.  You don't have to carry it around once you're inside, just keep wearing the coat.  I like the way that the Penguin used umbrellas.  He made weapons out of them, or vehicles.  Typically they shot out some kind if smoke.  Mine, I would have shoot or ooze out gooey stuff, like eazy cheeze or mayonaise.  You could sabotage everyone with that.  That would be pretty cool.
