10 Superhero Vehicles Almost As Cool As The Green Hornet’s  | The Herkimer Battle Jitney
The Herkimer Battle Jitney

Film: Mystery Men (1999)
Owner: Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller)

Features: In the world of the Mystery Men, down at the auto yard there was this old Herkimer Battle Jitney. That’s right, the finest non-lethal military vehicle ever made! With a little bit of help from Dr. Heller (the inventor of "blame thrower" and the "shrinker"), it has a giant electro-nuclear-magnet attached to it, making it officially the greatest non-lethal fighting vehicle ever built, and several tonnes of villainy-squashing awesomeness. It looks like a giant bus-tank, it handles like a giant bus-tank, and it’s what we’re hoping the producers behind the remake of Summer Holiday (N.B. not actually happening) will pick as the modern replacement for the red London bus. Fingers crossed!

Driving song: “Mystery” by Hugh Laurie

1 Arnie's fat boy!!???...
Technically Arnie in Terminator 2 wasn't a super hero but a hero none the less and his iron horse deservers a mention... After all it is jumping off 50 foot drops into storm drains.... You couldn't imagine the T800 driving anything but the Harley-Davidson FLSTF 1340cc Fatboy. A big 'fuck you' mean machine for a big 'fuck you' mean machine... Harley released the Fatboy as direct competition to the Japanese bike makers cheap looking imitation Harleys (know as 'poor mans harleys') such as the Honda Shadow and the Yamaha 'Star' ranges... Incidentally Harley got the name 'Fatboy' from the names of the atomic bombs dropped on Japan at the end of WW2... Fatman and Little boy.... mmmeeeeooowwwww!!!!....... More
