** In the ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' relaunch of ''Amazing Spider-Man'', Spidey gets a second Spider-Mobile and actual driving lessons. Also, SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} gained possession of the original Spider-Mobile.



* ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' had the Fantasticar, in several variants. In early adventures, the FF had the original "flying bathtub" model, then a second, more streamlined and versatile one that can split into four separate planes, and the Pogo Plane (based on a real aircraft) for longer trips than the Fantasticar could take. All have the team's big '''4''' logo. The "flying bathtub" is so iconic that it's still associated with the name despite having been retired back in issue #12!

The "flying bathtub", like the Spider-Mobile, is in Deadpool's possession now.

* In MichaelMoore's show, ''The Awful Truth'', there was the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin SODOMobile]], a bus decked out with dozens of signs alluding to its passengers: a group of gay activists who Moore was driving around to {{troll}} the protests being carried out by the notoriously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church.

* Want something even sillier? Say hello to the [[Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Toa]] [[http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/Toa_Terrain_Crawler Terrain Crawler]]. A ''living'' being captured by Axonn, then turned into a Cyborg, all years before the events in the series. Despite this, it looks like one of the current Toa's masks. Needless to say, it's some unholy combination of Centipede, Train, APC, and Sea monster that somehow has a giant [[GatlingGood Cordak blaster]] attached to the top. Note that it's stuck to the ocean floor while the whole cast can swim. And have no real need for long-distance transporation anyhow.

%%* You wouldn't think {{Superman}} would need such a thing, but he had a Supermobile. Created, like the Spider-Mobile, as a [[MerchandiseDriven toy tie-in]], the Supermobile did have some practical uses. Driving it, Superman could still be active in ordinarily hostile environments (e.g., in the presence of Kryptonite or a red sun.) [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/justicejogger.jpg The Justice Jogger]] is a bit more difficult to justify, admittedly.
%%** An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' featured Lex Luthor piloting something very similar to the Supermobile, but with his own logo and color scheme.



* Although ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's comics vehicles aren't usually visually distinctive (but see Film, below), his also [[WearingAFlagOnyourHead patriotic-themed]] [[HeelFaceTurn foe-turned-ally]] Battlestar has a red-white-and-blue Star Car. In the ''UltimateMarvel'' continuity, he uses a Captain America Tank for about three panels before the Hulk tears it apart. It is also stated that he has his own toyline of similarly themed vehicles.

He usually uses it when there is something in the environment (red sun rays, Kryptonite, or what have you) that he needs protection from.
