Batman’s always had it over Superman in the gadget department. Even the Fortress of Solitude pales in comparison to the Batcave.
But on those rare occasions when Superman loses his powers — and Batman gets them — well, then the Man of Not Quite Steel needs a ride, y’know?
Enter the SUPERMOBILE!
Not the goofy Bronze Age spaceship with the gigantic hands…
I’m talking about the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it ride from the pre-Silver Age — from 1955’s World’s Finest #77 — a vehicle that made sense to highlight during BATMAN/SUPERMAN WEEK.
And Eaglemoss, as is typical, dug deep in the Batvaults to produce a model of it — on sale as Batman Automobilia #72.
The Supermobile is basically a convertible with a big, red S on the front. (Interesting that Batman wouldn’t get a convertible of his own until 1964.) The lenticular 3D background features a flying Batman carrying a house, ripped straight from the splash page of World’s Finest #77.
The cost, including the full-color magazine, is about $20. You can get it through your comics shop, online retailers or through Eaglemoss itself, either by subscription or individually. (It’s on sale at Eaglemoss for about $17, as of this writing.)

Take that, Amazo! I Have a feeling Supes drives that thing 5 miles below the speed limit, in the passing lane. Safety first, kids!

Kind of resembles Clark’s car from the George Reeves’ show.
