This is where I draw my questions from, you may want to take a look if you're not sure what I'm asking about.
Here it goes:
a1. Desert Storm? Dark Knight? anyone has an idea?This beast is more Desert Storm than Dark Knight.
Holy Baghdad, Batman.
The real batmobile, every schoolboy knows, is a 1955 Lincoln Futura.
a2. Holy Baghdad - holy crap, holy s&!+... type of exclamation? why holy Baghdad? is it possible that good people of Iraq may find the expression offensive?
a3. schoolboy - is the writer referring to people in certain generation? or does he literally mean 'school boy'? I'm asking because I didn't know about the 60's batmobile being a 1955 Lincoln Futura.
b1. Pumped up = suped up, Lamborghini = one of the most expensive luxury cars, tank = is a... tank. OK, I can't make out anything else. Could you explain?Pumped up Lamborghini-Humvee-swamp buggy-tank.
c1. Is this Batman-specific expression? or is this a general expression? what does it mean?Are they trying to pull the wool over our eye-slits?
More questions coming up...

Desert storm = the first Gulf war Dark Knight = name for Batman (I think)
Holy Baghdad- In the TV series, Batman and Rob9in used strange expressions of surprise like this. They used Holy+ comething from the context of the show. I think it's more crass than offensive here.
Any schoolboy = everybody. However, the writer's forgetting their age.
Pull the wool over someone's eyes = fool them. Eye slits because of Batman's costume.
Same Bat time, same Bat channel
