A new study of the aerodynamics of Batman's winged attire concludes that the caped crusader certainly can fly over Gotham City, but that when it comes to landing, his gear is a suicide waiting to happen.
"If Batman wanted to survive the flight, he would definitely need a bigger cape," co-author David Marshall suggests helpfully. "Or if he preferred to keep his style he could opt for using active propulsion, such as jets to keep himself aloft."[telegraph]
Elaborate planning by the Arlington Police and Fire departments and Texas-based nonprofit a Wish with Wings allowed 7-year-old cancer patient Kye to see his wish come true: He spent Saturday fighting crime around the city as Batman. Kye, who suffers from leukemia, foiled an attempted bank robbery by the Joker and a bomb scare at City Hall engineered by the Riddler.
