Batman's cape-gliding won't fly

BATMAN could fly, but he wouldn't survive the landing because his wingspan is too short, according to researchers.

Four students from the University of Leicester, UK, have calculated that the superhero's method of using his cape to glide from tall buildings would result in him hitting the ground at life-threatening speeds.

After doing the maths, the students claim Batman would be lucky to survive on reaching the ground and advise he use a parachute the next time he is out fighting crime.
