THOUGHTS ON THE TESTED UNIT'S COST, BALANCE, & DRAFTABILITY: Couldn't quite unlock the potential of the Batmobile in terms of a mobility upgrade, but frankly I don't own a table big enough for that. It has some cool movement/auto-wounding tricks, though, assuming you have the remote in play. Doesn't feel super exploitable, but it's a cool option for Batman that encourages looking at a slightly different set of Utility Glyphs: I think the Bat-Grapple becomes a lot less key for him when playing with the Batmobile, and the Bat Shuriken a lot more.

This was my first time playing the new vehicle rules and it went pretty smoothly. I was referencing the text a lot during the first game, but not at all during the second.

My instinct on cost is that it might be slightly over-costed for the way I was using it here on the smaller map, but that its value would tick up quite a bit if you were playing on a bigger map. I don't think that's necessarily a negative, though.
