How to Become Batman

Totally fascinating Scientific American article on the possibility of becoming Batman for real. The man who did the research is both a professor of neuroscience and kinesiology and a black belt, so I'm totally buying this. One of the great things about Batman is he always seems more possible than any other superhero. No radioactive spiders or alien parents needed. What would it take?

How many of us do you think could become a Batman?
If you found the percentage of billionaires and multiply that by the percentage of people who become Olympic decathletes, you could probably get a close estimate.

Now admittedly, that's not many, but all you need is one.
