21st century

First Appearance

Hail the Tornado Tyrant!


Besides the multi-faceted Batmobile and Batcycle, Batman also has a custom helicopter in his arsenal of vehicles. The Whirly-Bat is a play on the classic nickname for helicopters, "whirlybird." It is a swift and highly manoeuvrable one-seater based on a lightweight design. The design frowns on heavy armament so the copter only carries two missiles and is not preferable for direct combat. It can be remotely summoned with a button hidden near Batman's right palm.

While fighting Major Disaster with Red Tornado and Tornado Champion at the Bayside Pier, the Whirly-Bat was destroyed, like most Bat-transportation. Soon enough it was rebuilt with the vast resources of Bruce Wayne. Months later, Batman secretly observed the battle between Black Manta, Gorilla Grodd, Clock King, Black Canary, Aquaman, and Green Arrow from the Whirly-Bat. To save them from Music Meister's marching orders, Batman ensnared them in the copter's net.
