First we had Japanese Batman, prowling the streets of Chiba to cheer his fellow citizens up - and now the International League of Batmen has expanded southwards to Australia thanks to the awesome work of one man and his customised Batmobile.
Unlike Chibatman, Australia's Dark Knight has revealed his identity to the public - he's Zac Mihajlovic of Camden, Australia. Zac spent two years building his own roadworthy incarnation of the Batmobile from Tim Burton's 1989 movie with the help of his Grandfather. It's an impressive build, not just from the dedication but the fact that it even uses parts from the original vehicle built for the film - including the afterburner designed especially for it!
Although he's had many offers from people looking to buy the vehicle, Zac instead partnered up with the Make-A-Wish foundation to drive around dressed as the Caped Crusader and visit sick kids, offering them the once-in-a-lifetime chance to have a ride around in the Batmobile. How cool is that!? Zac is truly the hero we deserve.
