"It's the car, right? Chicks dig the car."
Batman[src]

The Batmobile is the Batman's primary mode of transportation. At first Batman often simply referred to the Batmobile as "the car", he would later come to call it the Batmobile. The vehicle is one of the most daunting components in his vast arsenal, keeping it stored in the Batcave when not in use.

HistoryEdit

Batman ForeverEdit

Replacing the previous model Batmobile that he had used in his battles against The Joker and The Penguin, Batman takes this model Batmobile out to confront Two-Face as he holds up the Second National Bank.

While patrolling the Gotham streets, Batman was ambushed by Two-Face and his thugs. While escaping the initial attack, the thugs gave chase in their own vans until Batman turned down an alleyway and, using a grapple system built into the car, ascended the building walls; allowing him to escape while Two-Face's thugs crashed into the wall below.

Following Dick Grayson's discovery of the cave, Alfred was forced to inform Bruce Wayne of the theft of the Batmobile as Grayson had taken the car on a joy-ride through the Gotham streets. As he was already in Gotham, Bruce managed to track down Grayson and apprehend both the youth and the Batmobile, taking both back to the Batcave.

During Two-Face and the Riddler's attack on Wayne Manor, the Batmobile is destroyed along with a majority of the Batcave.
