Global Motors was a Gotham City based car manufacturer.
Global Motors was run by a man with questionable ethics. One of their top engineers, Earl Cooper, quit after he pleaded to deaf ears about a defect in the new MRW Sports Car. Rather than fix it, the CEO informed Cooper that the company would go ahead with production, since their legal department advised them that they could not be held accountable for any accidents, even fatal ones. The CEO decided to try and kill Cooper, afraid he would report them to the authorities, but failed thanks to Batman. After a short scandal, Global went out of business.
