In a hurry and need a lift? Comic books have always provided inspired solutions to common problems.
Perhaps the most entertaining aspect of superhero stories is seeing those larger-than-life figures struggling with the same menial tasks as us puny humans, then, in an act of pure wish fulfillment, overcoming these obstacles in impossible or laughable ways.

From Mera's Dolphin Chariot and Johnny Blaze's Hell Cycle to Saga's Treehouse Rocketship and Moon Knight's Mooncopter, climb aboard these awesome rides and never worry about getting stuck behind a school bus.
