9. The Batmobile
On one hand, I really don't like the design of the Tumbler and I never have. But on the other, it's always been strange to me to consider a sleek, well-designed and engineered ride for Batman, which is why tethering it organically to the world of the film was always going to be important. The idea of using Wayne Industries to fill Batman's gadgetry needs works, and particularly, the ties to military and infantry prototypes gave the whole enterprise a slapdash sheen that worked in its favor. Things like the Batpod and the Bat might have proven to be a bit off the range, but the bridging vehicle-turned-Batmobile was a cool and innovative touch.
