Bruce Wayne's butler and frequent cover, Alfred Beagle, first appeared in Batman #16, in April of 1943.

The bumbling son of a retired military agent who had worked for the Wayne family, Alfred applied for the job of butler and all-around "gentleman's gentleman" for Bruce and Dick at Wayne Manor.

Of course, fearing for their secret identities, the two were initially reluctant, although unwilling to hurt Alfred's feelings by rejecting him utterly.

In the end, he became vital to the long-term future of Batman and Robin as one of the supporting Batman characters every fan enjoys.

And one heck of a Batmobile it is, too. Downright intimidating. Menacing. Bad ass.
