Tim Burton's Batmobile


Fictionally, one of the most perfect cars is the Batmobile. Admit it, if all of us could have one, we would.

The Batmobile was huge, long, low and sleek. It combined design elements from 1930s coupes like the Bugatti Type 57 and modern racing cars such as the Porsche 962 and was built on a Chevy Impala chassis.

Holy 75th Anniversary, Batman! Let's Watch The 1949 "Batman And Robin" Movie!


Yep, the Cape Crusader has been around for 75 years already... time flies when one's having fun fighting crime, doesn't it?

To celebrate this important milestone in the DC's superheroes universe, we will post some videos with Batman in them during the next few weeks... and we've started the ball rolling with a mega post with 15 videos in it. 15 videos, because that's the number of episodes the 1949 "Batman and Robin" movie (the one with Robert Lowery and Johnny Duncanhas, and there is one episode per video. Like in the "good old days" when some of the movies were serials, you know... 

A quite lengthy trip to memory lane that was made possible thanks to our faithful old TARDIS... (Oh, okay, it's from, really, but it's still a great find and, hopefully, you will enjoy it as much as we did.)

Have fun!

'Batman and Robin' - 1949


Antisocial Prof. Hammil's Remote Control device, which enables the user to take over any motor vehicle within 50 miles (!), is stolen by The Wizard, black-hooded mastermind, and his gang. Batman and Robin (who drive about in a standard convertible) must prevent the Wizard from obtaining diamonds, needed as fuel for the device, and rescue magazine photographer Vicki Vale from periodic perils. Where is the Wizard's base, reached only by remote controlled submarine? Which of several suspicious characters hides beneath the Wizard's hood? Written by Rod Crawford


Batman drives a 1949 Mercury convertible throughout, but, in one instance, when the need arises, Robin shows up in a 1949 Mercury four-door sedan, which is apparently his own; meanwhile, the Wizard drives a 1949 Mercury two-door sedan; Winslow Harrison drives a 1949 four-door Lincoln sedan; and the cops use a number of 1949 Fords, all of them innovatingly styled products of the Ford Motor Company, who must have had the only new car dealership in Gotham City. The Wizard's henchmen make a lot of use out of a 1941 Lincoln 8 passenger sedan, while Vicki Vale must make the best of it with a 1939 Plymouth convertible. (more trivia can be found on the IMDb site)


Vicki Vale: Untie me please!
Batman: Haven't got time; you'll be all right. Don't go away!
Officer Murphy: You can't go in there!
Vicki Vale: Well, I'm Vicki Vale of Picture magazine.
Officer Murphy: Vicki Vale, eh? Well, I'm Officer Murphy of the Patrol Bureau. You still can't go in there!

Holy Regeneration, Batman!

Wow! If you needed another good reason to visit the site, the comic we're showing in today's post is definitely the one that will convince you once and for all...

That mother of all 'what if' comics by Stjepan Sejic is not only hilarious, it also actually makes sense. How else would the Dark Knight be still looking so good considering he's been fighting crime since 1939? 

The utility belt part is sheer genius... Great Tardis reference! Love it!

Suitable Day Jobs For Superheroes [Infographic]


In the following infographic, the peeps from have a light-hearted look at the most suitable everyday jobs for their favorite superheroes in case, one day, the world has become crime and war free at last (as, obviously, those super-beings would find themselves with nothing to do and, like the rest of us, would need to get a day job). 

Just in case, you know...

My Favorite 3 Comic Book Super Villains

In our world of crime and villainy, it is good to be able to enter a world where the villains are evil but acceptable because of their evil. Comic book writers have created some brilliant superheroes over the years, and they have also created some brilliant super villains. These villains are truly evil, and we know it, but how many of them would you want to be locked away in a prison or killed? Probably none of them, they are as much a part of the enjoyment as the heroes themselves. Totally over the top, they are loved as much as Batman and Superman. 

Below are a few of my favorite human villains from comics over the years.

What Will the Next Superhero Look Like?

The concept of superheroes was born in a highly unstable time of crisis and social uproar. As uncertainty spread rampantly across the population, people needed somebody to protect them, to fight crime, to stand up for “the little guy”. Hence superheroes were born. The possibly most famous and prototypical superhero is Superman, born in 1933, in the times of the Great Depression. 80 years later, the situation hasn't changed too much. Civil unrest and financial uncertainty have become an inseparable part of our everyday lives once again, and this is a growing tendency. A new generation of superheroes is needed more than ever as the old symbols are slowly losing their power. But what would this new generation of superheroes look like?

Why Can Bruce Wayne Never Seem To Manage To Throw A Decent Party Without It Getting Gatecrashed By A Supervillain?

Gotham City
Gotham City (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
He is Gotham City's most eligible bachelor and one the richest men in the DC Universe (even Superman only lives in a little apartment and he's the most powerful being on the planet). The world is Bruce Wayne's oyster; he can go anywhere, buy anything and date anyone he wants. So when he throws a party at his mansion, you would naturally assume that it would be the greatest show on Earth. Sadly for Bruce and his guest list, this is invariably not the case. Money certainly isn't the issue, so where does he go wrong?

The Most High Tech Heroes On Our Screens


In recent times, geek chic has taken the world somewhat by storm. It's no longer something to be ashamed of if you're handy with a computer and wear specs, it's something to be proud of and to show off. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the silver screen, or on the smaller screen in our living rooms, where geeks are regularly saving the day using their brains and technology rather than pure brawn.

Recently a number of high profile high tech heroes have risen to the forefront of pop culture. Here we will look at a few of the best, and what they say about the modern nerd...
