10 Superhero Vehicles Almost As Cool As The Green Hornet’s  | Captain Nemo's
Captain Nemo's "Otto Mobile"

Film: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)
Owner: Captain Nemo (Naseeruddin Shah)

Features: It’s wholly unremarkable if we’re talking merely in terms of natty gadgets and gizmos – unless you count the fact that Nemo can track it remotely, allowing it to serve as the beacon he needs to fire his missile accurately – but that doesn’t much matter. Not when you realise it has six wheels, it’s covered in ivory and silver, and looks unbelievably amaze-balls – even if by rights it should handle like an angry hippo covered in butter instead of nimbly spinning around Venice of an evening. But we’re splitting hairs here, we know: it’s a good looking car. A good-looking, fast car, in a bad-looking, highly disappointing movie. But hey, you can’t win ‘em all, can you Sean?

Driving song: Beyond The Sea by Bobby Darin

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
