World's coolest grandpa transforms his scooter into the Batmobile

Batman's been around for a while. Appearing first in Detective Comics #27 way back in May of 1939, he's looking pretty spry for a guy in his 70s. He's not the only one.

At 74, great grandpa Brian Vann decided Bruce Wayne wouldn't be the only guy with a fancy ride and made his own—out of his mobility scooter.

The retired construction worker is getting noticed. Brian says, "People drive past in their cars and stop when they see me, get out, and ask for a photo."

Can't say we blame them.

"I feel like a bit of a celebrity. I know how the Beckhams must feel when I go out in my Batmobile. If it brings a smile to people's faces, then it's done the job."

Just one question—does his wife have an invisible jet?
