Batman: Gettting Buried Alive & Arkham Asylum

Bruce Wayne once had this to say about escaping from “being tied up in a straitjacket and then buried alive in a coffin”:

I’ve escaped from every conceivable deathtrap. Ten times. A dozen  times. I can slow my breathing and metabolism to control panic and conserve air. Straitjacket’s kindergarden. Locks too. Benchpressing a pine coffin lid through 600 pounds of loose soil that’s filling your mouth, crushing your lungs flat and shredding your dehydrated muscles.

That’s harder. But far from impossible.

The “not-to-be-taken-seriously” The Batman Handbook: The Ultimate Training Manual does describe some of  the techniques involved such as ontrolled breathing, conquering phobias and breaking free of bindings in several “How-to” chapters.

However cool it might sound, I don’t think getting buried alive and clawing your way out will be part of the upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum video game for the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3. The game does look really good in the recent E3 videos. Check  out the following video:
