Other caves[edit]

How about some information about the different Batcaves in each movie?

By the way, I feel it was unnecessary to include the natural bat habitat. Is it really worthy of an encyclopedia article? ;-) -OneGyT

Interesting to compare the Fortress of Solitude with the write-up under "Equipment" in Superman: both fairly detailed. But I must say that the Batcave write-up is crap; the write-up in the Batman article is much better. Dyslexic agnostic 05:21, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Since I put that there, thanks Dyslexic! ^_^ GeoffB

I am on the case to edit this page. --^BuGs^ 08:51, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

I've added some historical info to the intro. Why is the article written as though the Batcave is real? Maybe a little more publishing history would help.Roygbiv666 22:07, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Actually Cloak of Ku Klux Klan[edit]

See Detective Annual#2, it is actually a Klan robe.

What "is actually a Klan robe"? Roygbiv666 03:25, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Multiple Batcaves[edit]

The description of the entrances to the Batcave describes the caves from several different version of Batman (the comics, the Adam West series and the first run of movies) as though they're all the same cave. More clarity is needed. Euchrid 16:49, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

where exactly is the Batcave in the Arkham Asylum video game?

Holy Bat-camera[edit]

Les Daniels' DC Comics says it was created for the Columbia serial. Anybody got a firm source for the Batman 12 ref? Trekphiler 11:08, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Created Other Media sections for the TV series[edit]

I agree with an earlier comment, this section of the article does need work! In response to it, I added new portions pertaining to the individual animated series. Perhaps I will add some with regards to the individual films, though later I guess.


In almost every incarnation I've ever seen, the Batcave is also home to actual bats. Has there ever been any indication to how they deal with the bat droppings and their subsequent strong smell? Or has that always been a "suspension of disbelief" issue? JCub 18:04, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

I checked out The Batman Handbook by Scott Beatty yesterday, and on page 46 it says "Batman uses a system of netting and catch basins anchored to the stalactites and roof of the Batcave to prevent bat excrement from falling directly on top of his sensitive equipment." Pages 45 & 46 mention the danger of methane fumes from bat guano, and I thought, "Well, why doesn't he use the methane for fuel?" I mean, there's research into using methane from cow manure, pet droppings, etc. as fuel, and you'd think Batman would be smart enough to know how to do it. Evernut 15:31, 26 April 2007 (UTC)


I know for a fact there are full-size versions of that picture on the internet, we can do better than what we have up there. Scale it down a bit, maybe, but bigger than THAT.

the alternate identity of playboy Bruce Wayne[edit]

I like this wording. Batman isnt Bruce Wayne's secret identity, Bruce Wayne is Batman's secret identity. (talk) 02:01, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Foreign cave[edit]

The comic book series 'Batman International' has a focus on a Batcave in a foreign country...I just don't remember which country it actually was. Lots42 (talk) 18:04, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Batcave houses a stranger[edit]

I vaguely remember that there was an episode in a detective comics series in the 90ties which introduced a slightly physically impaired man who kept himself aloof and lived inside the Batcave. He was a handyman of sorts and later Jean Paul Valley sought his help in vain when designing his costume. What happened to that guy? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:08, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Sounds like you're talking about Harold Allnut. Euchrid (talk) 21:30, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Batcave References in Tiny Titans[edit]

Just an FYI, there are many amusing references to the batcave in the Tiny Titans comics. Especially see #3 (2007) for fun nods at the big penny and dinosaur. I will let you guys take it from there, but I just wanted to point this out for possible inclusion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:17, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

14 miles to Gotham City[edit]

Is there a source in the comics for this distance, or was it fabricated for the tv show? Thanks. knoodelhed (talk) 20:47, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
