History[edit | edit source]
Early History[edit | edit source]
The Batwing is used as an alternative way of travel around Gotham, being used when the Batmobile is not operational. The cost to develop the plane reached milions of dollars, leading people to even question the actions of Wayne Enterprises, specially because of their lack of contracts with the military. After Robin's death the passenger seat of the Batwing was modified to store additional weapons and gadgets for Batman to use in the field.
Doomsday Incident[edit | edit source]
The Batwing was used by Batman to travel to face Superman as Superman had earlier damaged the Batmobile. After realizing that he and Superman were on the same side, and that both were manipulated by Alexander Luthor, Jr. into fighting, Batman left in the Batwing to rescue Superman's Earth mother, Martha Kent. Using the guns on the Batwing, Batman took out the guards outside the warehouse before letting Alfred Pennyworth take control of the Batwing in drone mode. After rescuing Martha, Batman flew to Stryker's Island to find Doomsday, whom Superman had been battling. Batman tried to get Doomsday to follow him back to Gotham and towards the Kryptonite Spear, firing at the monster. Doomsday in response, followed and shot down the Batwing with his Thermal Blast sending it crashing into a wreck.
