Top 5 Tuesdays: The Best Superhero Cars

August 12, 2014

Top5Tuesdays

We all have our answers ready when asked what our dream super power would be – but we’re more interested in the machine behind the man. If you were a superhero, which super-car would you pick? For this week’s Top 5 Tuesday, we’ve picked the best crime-fighting vehicles around, so you can save the day in style!

 

Black Beauty – Green Hornet (2011)

Superhero Movie Cars: Black Beauty Green Hornet

The beast that is Black Beauty, Green Hornet’s supercar, is a modified 1965 Chrysler Imperial. If its rocket launchers and machine guns aren’t enough to deter the baddies, it also features a spiked wheels and even a flamethrower! It’s clear from its wide array of weaponry that the Black Beauty takes no prisoners. In the 2011 film version of Green Hornet, Black Beauty is the star of the show, overshadowing every other character in the superhero blockbuster.

 

Fantasticar – Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

Superhero Movie Cars: The Fantastic Four, Fantasticar

The Fantastic Four’s super vehicle made its big screen debut in the 2007 Fantastic Four sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Although it’s named the Fantasticar, it’s really more of a plane, flying the clan from New York to Siberia in a matter of minutes. The sleek design also boasts the ability to split into multiple sections – because nobody likes to car share.

 

Mist Mobile – Kick Ass (2009)

Superhero Movie Cars: The MistMobile, Kick Ass

Kick Ass and Red Mist may just be ordinary kids trying to be superheroes, but Red Mist’s ride is far from ordinary. It’s not just a modded-up Ford Mustang, says Mist: “It’s got sat-nav, it’s got my iPhone so I can check the websites for emergencies when I’m driving around, it’s got a little bit of mood lighting right there, a rear-view camera – no big deal – oh, and check this, you’re going to love this… the mist.” Yep, it can even fire smoke from its bonnet – what’s a superhero without his superhero gimmick?

 

The Incredicar – The Incredibles (2004)

Superhero Movie Cars: The Incredibles, Incredicar

The car driven by the Incredibles family patriarch, Mr Incredible, during his superhero hay day has the ability to disguise itself, changing to ‘stealth mode’ in order to go about day-to-day life undetected. The jet turbine changes into a spare tire and the hood retracts to look like a normal sedan – but changing appearance isn’t even the most impressive feat of the Incredicar. Along with all the standard gizmos and gadgets – an ejector seat for example – the car even has the ability to dress Mr Incredible in seconds, which comes in very handy (especially when he’s late for his own wedding)!

 

The Batmobile

Superhero Movie Cars: Batman Begins, the Batmobile

This has to be everyone’s number one. It’s the ultimate superhero car. Batman’s famous car has gone through its fair share of incarnations over the years, from the sleek art deco look Tim Burton gave the car in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) to the most recent army tank style that Christopher Nolan opted for in The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005 – 2012). Nolan’s beefed-up Batmobile boasts autocannons, rocket launchers and an impenetrable armoured exterior.

Most impressive, though, is the Batpod. If the car gets damaged, the two front wheels can detach to form a motorbike while the rest of the car self-destructs. The legendary vehicle is set to return, with a new look and even more new features, in Zach Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
