SDCC 2012: Batmobiles Through The Years

Just before heading into The Hilton Bayfront for the “Twilight” press conference, I spent a few minutes with six truly wicked rides. You’d think seeing the Tumbler and Bruce Wayne’s other whips merely parked on the grass rather than zipping around Gotham City would be a bit of a drag, but these things are just as incredible stagnant, in the flesh.

The Wicked Witch of the West is evil in the purest form and, in turn, has become one of the most iconic villainesses in film history.
