Ulises Farinas gives us a cute look at one of Batman’s lesser known neuroses: his hoarding! As seen in previous entries, the Batcave is full of trophies, souvenirs, evidence, and other junk. He just can’t seem to throw anything away! Maybe it’s a good thing, as Batman also holds some of the most dangerous objects in the world for safekeeping, including a cache of every kind of kryptonite (just in case).
Here is a Golden Age rendering of the Batcave by 1940s Batman artist Dick Sprang. Some of the classic mainstays: the giant penny, the mechanical T-Rex, array of Batmobiles, Batcomputer (note the ticker tape instead of monitors), crime lab and trophy room.
And below is a more modern take on the cave from All-star Batman and Robin. Note the addition of the the armor museum.
One of the world’s most famous vehicles, the Batmobile has always been a big part of Batman’s arsenal. Much more so than his costume, Batman’s automobile has gone through many notable revisions, forcing the Batcave to double as a glorified parking lot. Part assault vehicle, part mobile hospital, it’s impossible to imagine Batman without his ultra sleek, ultra fast getaway car.
