I love how, while his cape's just hanging down, his shadow is widespread, in the Batman's iconic pose.

It's like it's got a mind of its own!

I didn't even notice that. Wow. Heh.

That used to be a pretty common thing, actually - Batman would be doing just any ol' thing, and regardless of whether it made the slightest bit of sense, he would be casting a DRAMATIC BAT-SHAPED SHADOW. It didn't matter if he himself was in some weird position that would normally only cast a sort of anonymous shadow-blob, or if he were somewhere with NO AMBIENT LIGHT SOURCES WHATSOEVER, that shadow would be on the wall a-posin' away.

I'll hope that Alfred had sewn it on properly, if I was Batman, cause you definitely don't want to lose your shadow!

So Batman's shadow works like Peter Pan's?

This explains so much, the Lost Boys and the Robins!

Except that Robin actually dresses much more like Peter Pan than Batman ever has...
