Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

The Dark Knight Returns Batmobile

Years after Batman's retirement, Bruce Wayne resurrects Batman when a gang called the Mutants threatens Gotham City. So begins one of the most popular "alternate" Batman storylines ever.

This is the largest Batmobile ever, easily straddling a three lane highway. Batman mentions how he "modified her during some nasty riots" 15 years prior, and that the only thing that can damage it "isn't from this planet." It easily shrugs off gunfire, grenades, and rocket launcher attacks, and offers its own array of heavy weaponry. In addition to its offensive capabilities, this Batmobile is equipped with an extensive medical bay.

This Batmobile was also featured in the Batman: The Animated Series episode "The Dark Knight," in a vignette based on a couple of scenes from The Dark Knight Returns.
