Batman (Literature)

"We started out talking about how the Cylon raiders on BSG look like Batman's car when it turns into a plane.""

Batman started as the Bat-Man in Detective Comics #27 in 1939 by Bill Finger and Bob Kane. He became a national hit soon thereafter, with his own comic books, serials, tv shows, and movies, and he gained sidekicks, partners, and numerous gadgets along the way, including his Batmobile, Bat-Signal, Batcycle, Batboat, Batcopter, and, of course, the Batplane. I don't know when exactly his Batmobile turned into a plane like Max does, but in Tim Burton's 1989 movie, the plane certainly looks like a Cylon Raider. See for yourself.
