    This web page is dedicated to my favorite hero of all-time, BATMAN.  One of the best in action and the best with gadgets =)  Showing off his computers, vehicles, utility belt full of tools, and the heavily modified Batcave.

    Batman originated from the comic books of Marvel Comics.  From my understanding, and this is only from watching the television series and movies (some fan huh!  I only watched Batman on the tube and never read the comics), the story of Batman starts when young Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents being murdered by a wicked villan.  Young Wayne runs from the dark and wicked towards his home.  As he runs, he falls into an opening in the ground which leads to a cave.  Dazed and confused, he sees an image of a bat.  This is where our super hero begins his quest to help the innocent Gothamites from the criminals of the night.

    Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne develops an arsenal of vehicles, electronics, gadgets, and an armored suit to combat the evil.  Mr. Wayne tests his crime stopping ability by spying high atop of buildings at the innocent citizens that are being threatened by villains and crooks.  He swoops in to rescue the victims and in doing so, he scares and captures the evil-doers for the police to pick up and throw into the slammer.

    During the course of these events, a circus happens to come to Gotham City to entertain one and all.  While the high flying trapeze act, the Gracens, were performing for the crowd, a villain enters the circus and starts to threaten the Gothamites.  The Gracens attempt to capture the crooks.  The head villain starts shooting and all the Gracens, except one, fall to their deaths.  Young Dick Gracen was left alone to face the world.  Thankfully and graciously, Bruce Wayne takes the boy into his home to care for Dick.  While looking around one day, Dick stumbles upon the Batcave and asks to assist the caped crusader with fighting crime.  Batman/Bruce Wayne agrees and Dick Ward assumes the name of Robin.  THE DYNAMIC DUO is born!

Below is a photo of 3 out of the 4 Batmobiles that have been used.  One for the show and the other two for movies.

    From top left to right, the Batmobile from the movie Batman Forever starring Val Kilmer as Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Robin, Tommy Lee Jones as Two Face/Harvey Dent, and Jim Carrey as the Riddler.  Next is the Batmobile from the movie Batman starring Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker.  The same Batmobile returned in the movie Batman Returns starring Michael Keaton as Batman, Danny DeVito as the Penguin, and Michelle Pfieffer as Catwoman.  Last but certainly not least, my personal favorite , the original Batmobile from the television series.  The television series starring Adam West as Batman, Burt Ward as Robin, Yvonne Craig as Batgirl, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin, Caeser Romero as the Joker, and Eartha Kitt as Catwoman.  There is a fourth Batmobile from the movie Batman & Robin starring George Clooney as Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Robin, Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl, Arnold Scwartzanegar as Mr. Freeze, and Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy, however, I currently do not have a photo of it.

    The gentleman in the center of these cars is Mr. Barris.  The man who created these and other awesome television automobiles such as K.I.T.T. from the television show Knight Rider, the unique hurse from the Munsters, and many other famous cars.

    A brief tid bit on two of the Batmobiles.  The original Batmobile is a 1960's Lincoln Futura prototype car that never made it to the market, however it has been seen in a couple movies and other television shows.  Not just as the Batmobile model, but the Futura itself.  The Batmobile from the two movies Batman and Batman Returns is a Chevrolet Impala.

My comments of the television show and movies...

    The Batman television series, from the 1960's, was great and I wish that there were more of them.  The original Batmobile is the best Batmobile, by far, and the original actors and actresses from the series were great.  Adam West performed great as Batman and Bruce Wayne.  Burt Ward was a great Robin and Dick Gracen.  The original Alfred was the perfect butler.  Caeser Romero was the best Joker of them all, however Jack Nicholson did an excellent performance in the movie Batman.  Overall though, I liked Caeser's laugh better.  Burgess Meredith was great with the makeup and the laugh performing as the Penguin.

    As for the Batman movies, Michael Keaton was a good modern day Batman and Bruce Wayne.  The best out of all the movies, except for fitting the Batsuit.  George Clooney who played the role of Batman in Batman & Robin fit the suit very well.  I liked the Batmobile from the movie Batman moreso than the new faddish looking Batmobiles being shown in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.  In Batman Returns, Danny DeVito played the Penguin very well but they outfitted him with too much body.  Chris O'Donnell fit the part of Robin/Dick Gracen very nicely and hope to see him perform as Robin for many more movies to come.  In Batman Forever, Tommy Lee Jones (a great and favorite actor of mine) performed his Two Face character exceedingly well and full of energy.  Superb job Mr. Jones!!!  Jim Carrey, another favorite actor of mine, played the comical and crazy part of the Riddler and did it superbly.  Keep it up Mr. Carrey!!!  In Batman & Robin, a favorite and beautiful actress Alicia Silverstone was a good Batgirl, but Ms. Silverstone, please tell me that it was your character (or perhaps the dialogue) and not you that seemed to be unhappy during the movie.  You didn't show as much movement and full acting potential during this movie as you have in other movies.  You had your parts, but you weren't the same Alicia I have seen in other movies.  I have no idea what real part Poison Ivy had in this movie, however Uma Thurman was not bad at all with the role.  Arnold Swartzanager was a cool Mr. Freeze.

Adam West has created a website devoted to the original BATMAN.  It is located at www.adamwest.com
