Coolest Lairs of All Time

Chances are, you grew up pretending to be your favorite superheroes. Or, if you were the younger brother, you may have had to play as the super villains. Either way, you got to pretend you had a totally rockin’ lair. After all, next to a pony or a tree house, what could any kid want more than a totally cool lair? In our case, the tree house usually doubled as the lair, but that’s another story. Of course, as adults, most of us avoid actually building secret lairs because they tend to make the homeowners insurance premiums go up.

Still, if you could have a secret lair, which one would you want? We’re sure everyone has their favorites, but here’s our list:

  1. The Batcave. This is the place for you if you’re a gadget guy. Bruce Wayne had the place outfitted with state of the art computers before such things even existed. Besides, who wouldn’t want a lair with the Batmobile in the garage?
  2. Castle Grayskull. Admit it, when you’re all by yourself in the attic, you still pull out your He-Man and Battle Cat action figures. It’s OK, we do, too. As much as we’d love to have Castle Grayskull and that unnamed, mysterious power guarded inside that Skeletor and all the other baddies on Eternia wanted so badly, we’re afraid anything worth building a castle to protect would probably cost extra on the homeowners insurance policy.
  3. The Fortress of Solitude. If you’re looking for a little peace and quiet in a pristine environement, you could do worse than the Fortress of Solitude. In addition to being away from it all, Superman’s lair features alien technology including a holographic image projector. While we don’t really want to listen to Jor-El lecture on the proper use of power, we can imagine watching John Wayne while kicking back and enjoying an ice cold beer.
  4. The Sewer. OK, at first glance this doesn’t sound appealing. But when you add in four kickass turtles and a talking rat sensai and all the pizza you can eat, it would make one heck of a hangout.
  5. Atlantean Temple. Aquaman may have been the lamest superhero ever created (well, besides the Wonder Twins), but his lair rocks. Atlantean babes are hot. Enough said.
