Batman Begins was a good way to portray a more realistic Batman. Especially the dark atmosphere contributed an important part. Despite all these favorable sites, this Batman version has some flaws. When it comes to comics, it's not always advisable to discuss about reality. Many say: Come on, it's a comic. Brain off and enjoy. This objection is justified and understandable.
However, there are things that can not be ignored so easily. It is about the well-known laws of physics … (please don´t punish me for this "strange" word. I know, the laws of physics don´t always have a place in the world of comics). However, allow me a few thoughts.
Physics students David Marshall, Tom Hands, Ian Griffiths and Gareth Douglas penned a research paper entitled “Trajectory of a falling Batman” which examines the wingspan, height of descent and velocity representative of Batman’s cape during one of his flights, before proceeding to expose fatal flaws.
Apparently, Batman’s cape could support a 1,150 foot glide off a 492-foot tall tower, but his velocity would peak somewhere around 68 mph before leveling off at 50 mph, resulting in a new superhero called “Splatman”. http://nerdapproved.com/news/physics-students-claim-batmans-cape-wouldnt-stop-him-from-falling-like-a-rock/
Batman's wings are indeed suitable to slide from A to B, but B is located on the ground or slightly higher on a skyscraper wall. The biggest problem is speed. When Batman jumps off a high building in depth, he accelerates. He can not throttle the speed. To prevent a hard impact, Batman would have movable wings.
Now we need to enter into the realm of science fiction. Yes, science fiction has nothing to do with reality as well, but fiction can be easily combined with science. Fiction does not automatically mean impossible. It's more about logic within fiction that blends better with reality.
How about a suit with artificial muscles? The suit would have two bat wings and could be controlled with Batman's brain. Needless to say, the artificial muscles would be strong enough for a flight. Thus, Batman would be able to control the direction of flight and the flight speed. Here are two pictures in which something similar is seen.
The wings could have long claws with which Batman would be able to fight and climb. By the flying qualities he might even attack from the air, like an eagle (see the vampire from Underworld Evolution). He might even have boots with movable claws. With whom he could climbing and hanging upside down. In addition, he could use it in combat. That would be a whole new dimension.
Batman uses small gadgets with which it can fire a grappling hook. In these gadgets is a winch that pulls the rope down and Batman up. So the theory goes. But unfortunately, these gadgets belong to the realm of myth. Even if it were possible to shoot the rope up, nothing could generate the force to draw up a human body. There is a device that can do this. But it is big and slow. If the rope would consist of an artificial muscle (such as the suit and the bat wings), then the muscle could suddenly stretch and then contract. Sounds far-fetched, but it works. However, why does Batman need the rope if he can fly? Well, if he has no place to fly or if he wants to appear silently, then he could need the rope.
The background story and the plot of Batman Begins is good. However, the whole story could be made even sinister and more mysterious. I imagine Batman as Mothman, as a kind of phantom that appears out of nowhere and just as quickly disappears. No one knows exactly what or who he is. Many conspiracy theories have grown up around him. Some say it's the famous Mothman, other think it is a being half human and half bat. Strangely, he attacked only criminal people.
Batman's father owns the World Group Wayne Enterprises. One day his greatest rival sends his henchmen. They invade the entire family, they pour them with a flammable liquid and set them on fire. Only the little Bruce survives with serious injuries. The butler of the family learns of the attack, and taking care of the boy. Since he is a doctor, he can help him. He buried his parents and declard him dead. The boy is a bit distorted and ekes out his existence in a massive cave beneath the estate of his parents. However, the Bulter has ensured that Bruce gets support from other people. Bruce is growing up and is now an educated young man who has only one goal in mind: justice. He hires a new butler. He does not know who he is, he can not see his face, and must follow all orders. Only in the course of time, he may learn step by step, who Bruce really is. Bruce has invented artificial muscles, from which he built a suit. The helmet has ears with which he can perceive distant sounds. He also has a night vision device with which he can see in the dark and a wave machine, with which he can see even when no light is present. A voice changer ensures that he sounds scary. His face is not visible, not even parts of it. His gloves have retractable claws that support him in climbing and fighting. The artificial muscles makes him twice to three times stronger, which is a great Support for jumps.
