Batman could glide from tall buildings using his cape but would probably die from the impact of landing, physics students from the University of Leicester, UK, have demonstrated. They used formulas to calculate how effective the 15.4ft wide cape used in 'Batman Begins' would be.
They conclude that 'clearly gliding using a batcape is not a safe way to travel.' But the four students said the superhero would be able to fly safely if he used a larger cape. But if he did, he would smash into the ground and probably die on landing.
