Capabilities

Modern versions of the Batmobile are coated with titanium and the car still has the reactive armor, jet engine, onboard computer (which is capable of connecting the Batcave and Wayne businesses for multiple functions). The car is heavier than a tank and has the ability to absorb impact. The car can be triggered by a button on Batman's utility belt or in his gloves.

Weapons

The Batmobile contain various projectiles and missiles, although rarely does Batman use this feature. Batman can also make the Batmobile self-destruct by remote control, in the event criminals capture the vehicle.

Onboard Equipment

Modern versions of the Batmobile include an onboard computer located on the dashboard with a direct feed to the mainframe computer located in the Batcave.

Notes

  • The original concept of the Batmobile was developed by writer Bill Finger, and illustrated by artist Bob Kane. Later design concepts were developed by Dick Sprang.

Trivia

  • The Golden Age Batman initially drove a red 1936 Cord with no special modifications. In later issues, he developed his first genuine Batmobile, a modified, blue two-door sedan with scalloped vertical tailfins and a bat-shaped ornament protecting the front grille.
  • The Batmobile made its first cover appearance with Batman #20.
