Since its arrival in 1966, the iconic Batmobile has had many incarnations with each decade bringing its own take on this iconic supercar. In the 1930s and early 40s Batman’s car barely featured in the comic strips. When it was eventually drawn, it was just a bulk standard red convertible with elongated wings and a bat emblem on the front. Pretty boring when you consider what came later!
In fact, it was not until the 1966 TV series that the first real Batmobile appeared. This initial version was actually a converted Ford Lincoln Futura, which was a concept car that never made it onto the forecourt. That said, it only took three weeks for the car to be transformed into a vehicle that was fit for a superhero and the rest as they say, is history.
As you will see in this infographic from BookMyGarage, the Batmobile has evolved and been brought up to date many times over the years to appeal to each new generation.
Season three of the C.W.’s hit show Arrow introduced many to Barry Allen, a forensic scientist from a little town called Central City. Barry Allen is known to many as the Flash, the Fastest Man Alive, a founding member of the Justice League, and the first official superhero of a time known as the Silver Age of Comics. The title of the Flash has been held by more than just Barry; Jay Garrick, Wally West, and Bart Allen have all held the title of Scarlet Speedster throughout DC’s long history.
The Flash’s iconic red jumpsuit has not changed all that much in his history, even when other characters like Wally West or Bart Allen took up the mantle. The Flash’s look has stayed true to that original look developed by Carmine Infantino. Since his creation, the Flash has been featured in television, cartoons, video games, and comics—each medium giving him their own unique flair. Explore how the Scarlet Speedster has changed in his 75 year history with this infographic!
