The Javelin-7 was a jet plane designed and engineered by Batman to be the main form of transportation for the Justice League. The jetcraft was primarily for flight across the planet but it can be also be used underwater and in space. It is also equipped with a wormhole generator for lightspeed travel when the League has to conduct deep space missions. As an offensive measure, turrents on both sides of the Javelin emit lasers. As any standard jets, several safety measures are built in such as an ejector option and weapons lock. The ejector pod is composed of the main area seating the pilot and passengers. Surprisingly, it never sustained heavy damage in battle until a deep space mission in Alpha Centauri and Green Lantern had to tow it home with his power ring.
Months later, it was digitized by Brainiac in Dakota City then rebuilt only to be heavily damaged when the Heart of Darkness possessed everyone but the Flash and Batman. While the Flash tried to access the plane's communication device, the League attacked the sabotaged ship. After freeing everyone, the League still needed to save the Sun. They salvaged the wormhole generator and came up with a plan for Green Lantern to generate a raceway and the Flash would run the generator to lightspeed in 7.5 minutes then launch it into the Sun. An Einstein-Rosen Bridge would be created and drain away the anti-fusion matter. If the Bridge was created prematurely, not all the matter would be drained. If launched too late, the Bridge would destroy the Sun, too. Once the Sun and Earth were saved, the Javelin-7 underwent reconstruction only to be destroyed by the Thanagarians a short time later.
During the expansion of the Justice League, a fleet of Javelins were constructed and kept in the new Watchtower's hangar bay. As a safety precaution, Javelins are unable to fire while inside the Watchtower. On it's maiden mission, a Javelin's onboard medical bay was put into use when Green Lantern sustained flash burns from an encounter with Brimstone. Over the years, many Javelins were destroyed. On a mission in Goldhanger, at least one was devoured by Dark Heart Drones. In another routine evacuation, Batman was forced to take a Javelin and intercept a Kryptonite Warhead launched by Cadmus to destroy Doomsday and Superman. He generated a magnetic field of opposite charge to the warhead and attracted it off its programmed course. In a battle against Lex Luthor and Brainiac, Wonder Woman hurled a Javelin into the device they were creating to digitize the planet in one move. In another, one was destroyed by robot condors above Blackhawk Island.
