Well, this is useful information for any aspiring superhero artist, though it does raise the question of "why wear a cape in the first place?"

'Cause they're cool! Other than that, I have no idea :P Batman (and various other people in the Bat-clan) uses it to hide and terrify his enemies. That's the only cape I can think of that has any sort of practical use. I agree.

Good answer.
Historically, they were worn for warmth and (some) protection from the weather, from the time of ancient Rome to the early 19th century U.S.
Andrew Jackson wore a cape which helped save him once. Someone shot at him from behind, but since his cape obscured the shape of his upper torso, the shooter narrowly missed him, merely putting a hole through the garment. Perhaps Batman is aided in the same way.
And yes, they are cool. Even Vader wore one. :)

Oh wow. Capes are awesome then. (Well, more awesome than they already were.) The fact that Vader wore one made it even more awesome, I can't imagine him without a cape. It seems incomplete. Capes are just awesome in their own right. Common knowledge, yeah? :nod: If only capes/cloaks were accepted in society for everyday use. I would wear one.

So... In that reply you basically answered your own (probably rhetorical) question. Good work. :P
