A Visual History of the Batmobile [Infographic]

Behold, a pictorial history of the most lawbreaking car in Gotham City history, the Batmobile.  Here to remind us that in the 70’s Batman mostly drove… a regular car.  Like… with no markings.

Probably because the writers had used up their quota of WTF in the 60’s, when the Batmobile had two individual windshields for driver and passenger.  But, as we can see above, nothing beats the 90’s for WTFery.

If this infographic (created by Car Insurance.Org LOL) has one glaring omission, it would be the Batmobile of The Dark Knight Returns.  Maybe they didn’t like how it has guns?  They’re just rubber bullets.  Honest.

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
