Not too long ago, we brought you the story of the Brazilian Batman. At the time, we experienced a mix of awe and worry for retired soldier André Luiz Pinheiro. After all, taking on serious criminals, no matter what your training, is not a safe job. But thanks to a new BBC report, we’ve discovered Pinheiro has it a bit easier than we originally thought. He’s scaring the crap out of kids. After you give that a look, hit the jump and see if Batman’s famous batarangs could work when thrown in the real world by an expert.
In addition to two animated series and various animated shorts, the new DC Nation block on Cartoon Network has also been doing some interesting videos on superheroes tools. Last week I saw them test Green Arrow’s boxing glove arrow, but here’s one that might be of more interest. Watch what an expert marksman can do with a 15″ batarang.
