RELATEDTHE BATMAN (2022 DETAILS!!!)
The Batmobile made its debut with Batman in episode #27 of Detective Comics published in 1939. At that time, the Batmobile was a simple-looking red car.
In more recent portrayals, the Batmobile is typically portrayed as a high-tech, all-purpose car that is used to combat crime. This picture of the car has undergone a full transformation throughout the course of time.
Its look has ranged from that of a fully armed tank to that of a sleek racecar, such as the one shown in “The Wheelman of Gotham,” although the majority of its iterations have had aspects that are consistent with Bruce Wayne’s bat motif.
