For Families

Batman first drove in Detective Comics #27 (May, 1939). A sedan, the vehicle was simply referred to as "his car." It soon began featuring an increasingly prominent bat motif, typically including distinctive wing-shaped tailfins. In the early stages of Batman's career, he modified it with armor and technologically-advanced automotive customization and turned the Batmobile into a sleek street machine. This project teaches building skills and encourages creativity.
