Bruce's study has three points of access to the Batcave:
- the service elevator behind one of the bookcases (which originated in the Silver Age);
- the bat-poles (!!!) behind another bookcase (from the TV show, natch); and
- the long winding stone staircase behind the grandfather clock (the usual means of descent during the Golden Age and early to mid Silver Age)
Rather than separate "rooms", the Batcave's areas are distinguished by levels (marked with numbers) as the cave floor terraces down to the waterline at Elevation 1. Batman's central 'work area' with the Batcomputer flows directly into the Batmobile's turntable area and the causeway out of the Batcave. Note the stone stairs go over the causeway and open up there to form a balcony looking out on the Batcave. As for how the Batplane gets out of the cave, um.... I dunno. A tunnel. Or a winch. Yes, it's usually a winch of some kind.
Most of the areas of the Batcave are pretty sparse, with just enough "stuff" to make each area unique. The exception, of course, is the hoarder's paradise, the "Hall of Trophies", home of the Giant Penny. I tried to use only trophies that I've seen appear there (or can reasonable infer). See if you can spot:
- Diver Jones's tiger-headed diving suit
- the giant eight ball (from a Two-Face story, as we've discussed)
- Thomas Wayne's bat-man costume
- a statute of the original Robin
- a statute of Ace the Bat-hound
- the Penguin's machine gun umbrella
- the Joker-in-the-Box from "The 1,000 Secrets of the Batcave"
- Mr Freeze's freeze-gun
- The Red Hood's helmet and cape
- the Tinytown house that saved Batman's life when he battled Dr. Doom, and the sarcophagus Doom died in
- the harpoon cannon, giant die, and giant chess rook from that same story
- trophies from the Killer Moth, Mad Hatter, and the Riddler.
