Certain questions must be answered at Christmas. Do reindeer really know how to fly? Do i NEED another pair of socks? What would happen if Iron Man, Batman and Santa ever squared off against each other? Well, wonder no more…
Our friends at All Fancy Dress are also trying to find out: “As a bit of festive fun we thought we’d take a look at the specifications of the suit and equipment used by Santa Claus and compare them directly against those possessed by Iron Man and Batman.
“The data used for Santa is based on modern established traditions such as the general understanding he lives in Lapland, rides a sleigh pulled by reindeer and wears a red and white outfit with black boots. Using these details we researched what Santa would actually need to achieve physically [in terms of speed and logistics] to be able to deliver presents to millions of households in one single night. As you can imagine, Santa’s task is by no means a stroll in the park.
“With this data we were able to produce a minimum specification of what his suit and equipment would need to be capable of in order to complete the world’s single largest postal route. The comparative specifications for Iron Man and Batman are based off of the Mark VII [as seen at the end of The Avengers] and Dark Knight Rises suits, respectively.”
