Best Superhero Security Systems

November 13th, 2012

Even superheroes need security systems. Surprisingly, the writers and artists behind some of our favorite comics have also recognized this. A superhero without a lair is like a cat without fur, weird and somehow unsettling. And every superhero lair has some form of security that, strangely enough, tends to work similarly to the alarm system in your home.

Here is a quick list of our favorite superhero lairs and the security systems that protect them…

The Batcave

The legendary hideout of the Caped Crusader, the Batcave is one of the greatest additions in the history of comics. In the Batcave, Batman has a crime lab, training facility, and a safe place to think. Of course, the Batcave is safe because Batman is there but also because it has one of the most elaborate security systems on the planet.

Batman is a stickler for security, so the Batcave is equipped with motion detectors, surveillance cameras, and metal doors capable of locking people in or out. Even more impressive are the security measures Batman has in place in case members of the Justice League become evil. Batman is ready to take down Superman with kryptonite security measures and has aluminum weapons to fight the Green Lantern.

The Fortress of Solitude

Located deep in the Arctic Circle (that’s the north pole), the Fortress of Solitude is the hangout of Superman. Over the years, the Fortress of Solitude has undergone any number of changes, many of them directly effecting security. Originally, the only way into the Fortress was with a key so large that only Superman could lift it. This caused a few problems, including the death of a pilot, and the Man of Steel was eventually forced to rethink his security.

By the 1980s, the Fortress had be reimagined as a relic from Superman’s Kryptonian past. This new version of the Fortress doesn’t feature any recognizable security measures, other than its remote location and reliance of Kryptonian technology. Most humans are incapable of using technology from Superman’s home world but legendary villains, Lex Luthor and Brainiac, have successfully broken into the Fortress to various Kryptonian tools.

X-Mansion

The home of the X-Men and owned by Professor Charles Xavier, X-Mansion serves as a home, school, and training facility. Because mutants in the X-Men universe are routinely under attack from fearful humans, the mansion is well equipped with motion detectors and security sensors of all types. Of course, some of the best intrusion detection comes from the X-Men, who use their powers to sense unwanted trespassers. Some of the more traditional security features of the X-Mansion include massive doors made of advanced alloys, panic rooms, and secret passages.

Thinking about home security? With a property crime occurring every 3.7 seconds, its important to know that you are 33% less likely to be broken into with a home security system.
