The question is: How plausible is it?
Scientific American magazine has the answer.
SA talked to E. Paul Zehr, an associate professor of kinesiology and neuroscience at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, who's written a book due out this fall called Becoming Batman: The Possibility of a Superhero (Click the link to see that there are no superheroes in whatever department designed the book cover.)
Zehr's take: It's pretty plausible, if Bruce Wayne got enough training.
We'll see for ourselves this weekend. Maybe tonight, if we can get in.
