This....the Batman I am thinking of doesn't need to be armored because by the time you see him it's already too late.

Thank you very much for a more clear and RESPECTFUL way of describing what I clearly misinterpreted through other peoples posts

And it's entirely possible.

Bullets harmlessly bouncing off nanotechnology T-shirts

Quote:
"When a bullet strikes body armor, the fibers of these materials absorb and disperse the impact energy to successive layers to prevent the bullet from penetrating" Dr. Liangchi Zhang explains to Nanowerk. "However, the dissipating forces can still cause non-penetrating injuries which is known as blunt force trauma. Even when the bullet is stopped by the fabric, the impact and the resulting trauma would leave a severe bruise and, at worst, damage critical organs. Hence the best material for body armor should have a high level of elastic storage energy that will cause the bullet to bounce off or be deflected."
Quote:
"We may very roughly estimate the thickness of a possible CNT body armor material composed of several layers of woven carbon nanotube yarns if we can assume that the nanoscale properties can be extended simply to a macroscale case" says Zhang. "We feel this is justified because, when a CNT is grown, its diameter is in nanometers but its atomic structure along its length, in micrometers, does not change. In other words, it is completely different to the metal case of the microstructural change from monocrystalline to polycrystalline."

Taking their assumptions, the researchers estimate that a 600 micrometer thick body armor woven from six layers of CNT yarn the same thickness as a very fine T-shirt is sufficient to bounce off a .358 inch revolver bullet with a muzzle energy of 320 Joules.
Time to bring back the spandex.

Again, people, I was just wanting to post what my speculation was. Seems some of my posts are being taking out of context.
Yes, you did ,and I was just reaffirming that part you at least got right. (Except for the trolls line). Didn't mean to offend, if I did I apologize.

And the makers of the Arkham games would agree with you as that is one of the major features of the games. The idea is to avoid as much as possible being shot at using stealth and evasion and the like. In the games, if Batman gets in a fire fight, he usually ends up dead, even with his body armor.

Exactly.

And that's something ripped straight from the comics. In the comics, due to his stealth and overall evasiveness, Batman has rarely if ever been shot or stabbed.

Batman's suit has some bulletproof qualities and some armoring, but even still, he isn't gonna survive **** ton of gunfire.

Maybe a single carefully aimed shot. At most.

Batman's best defence is the fact he is fictional. Whatever he is wearing is protective enough, or fragile enough for the plot.

So it may as well look nicer than a pile of empty rubber ice cube trays.

Yeah, like how many times has Batman been shot or stabbed on film while trying to dodge it?

And by Two-Face in TDK. And he was stabbed in TDKR. And he may/may not have been stabbed in TDK, but I don't think he was (there would have been a splatting sound effect, I think).

And yet nobody cares that Hawkeye is taking on Alien warriors with his arms exposed

Because Hawkeye was adapted straight off the page while every live-action Batman so far was watered down.

That's the reason why so many people think Batman needs "Iron Man armor". The notion that Batman needs that nuch physical protection comes from that image of Batman that the movies have created.

Not only will Batman have armor but for the whole movie he'll be strapped into a car seat.

It appears to be based on the Arkham City design.
