Theorists, have you ever wanted to fly? Not Superman fly, but soar on a pair of wings like, well, a Phoenix? In the amazing new game Immortals Fenyx Rising, your character gets to do just that. She is a winged warrior out to defeat mythological monsters on her quest to rescue the Gods. Fenyx's wings are VERY similar to those Daedalus made for Icarus in the famous Greek myth. We all know how that turned out. What I want to figure out today is if a human can really fly with a pair of wings and HOW that would need to work to not end up crashing to the earth like Icarus. Let's FLY!

This feels like old school game theory and I love it Bummed insect wings weren't mentioned though. Adding a second pair of wings and swapping out feathers for membranes changes up the whole equation, and seeing as dragonflies have had pretty much the same wing design for around 300 million years, it could make for an interesting discussion.

You would be surprised how bad knowledge had the Greeks (and Romans) about general geography and physics. They thought that the snow on Kilimanjaro is actually silver, because "everyone knows that the higher up is hotter not colder, because you are closer to the sun". And if you want to read some real fun, check out Herodotos' take on Nile river and its yearly flooding.

The wings in the thumbnail are super anatomically incorrect, it's like having 3 elbows each with an extra forarm sticking out of it, it's super messed up like a superficial mix of bird and bat wings but nothing like either due to the extra joints and arms coming out at each one

It's actually "barf-e" as in get, bed or hen; sort of like saying "barr-fair" with a British accent. Two e's don't make the sound of "lay", ther's no "i" in Barfée. So ballet isn't "bal-lay", etc. If doubt just read the wiktionary ipa symbols. I'm not a native French (neither English) speaker but with most French borrowed words in English I usually try to pronounce things the closest to French as possible but with English phonemes (sounds).

The thing is about that massive bird is that it probably didn’t flap its wings like a typical small bird with lots of repeating flaps. It most likely flew like a hawk or eagle, mostly glides in wind currents and flaps its wings occasionally to keep its self up. You also didn’t talk about bat wings. Basically like a giant webbed hand with very thin fingers. Using webbed wings instead of feathered wings might make more lift counteracting the weight.

If u don't require flight wings like seen on angels and demons of Christian "lore?" Are physically possible. There is room and depending on size the human body can support the weight. you could have wings coming out at your shoulder blades.

I feel like back in the old days MatPat would have calculated how fast you would need to move the wings back and forth to fly, but I guess those days are behind us.

Using her wings like a hummingbird, while possible, wouldn’t be the best solution. Modern gliders are able to increase altitude not by moving the wings, but using the movement of air. Glider pilots learn to use thermals (rising pockets of hot air) and air moving over mountains to increase their altitude. Having the wings be static would not only decrease weight, it would dramatically decrease the energy required to fly.

So... What about Angel from the X-Men? Would he have a giant heart like birds? And what about when he was Archangel with metal wings? Did Apocalypse shrink his heart, mechanize it, or just give him thrusters? And what about other winged characters like Spider-Man's Vulture character? Or, heck, what about Kid Icarus?... You know the games you could have tied into this video? So many missed opportunities for research and study.

I seen some of the comments what I like to add is these would the wings be on you back or like one mythical creature from that time period harpies which had wings for arms I’m curious how they would effect these and what if there were ones with bat like wings would they glide which is more likely or could they flap and fly while or do they need to be like humming bird too?
