Big Surprise: It Costs a Boatload of Money to Be Batman & Iron Man
While many superheroes like Thor and Superman don't have a slew of gadgets at their disposal, thanks to their fancy super powers, the corporate faces turned vigilantes known as Batman and Iron Man don't have it all that easy. Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark do have the fortune (literally and figuratively) of inheriting a family business that rakes in billions, and that helps each of them build an arsenal of fancy suits, weapons, vehicles and more. But just how much money does someone need to become a formidable force for terrorists? Thankfully, we have a breakdown of the costs for each hero to put your mind at ease.
Does anyone out there have this level of cash lying around to pull this off? With Batman, it's funny to me that the custom graphite cowl costs more than the entire suit itself, but I guess that makes sense. I also feel like the supply of gadgets that Bruce Wayne has in the Batcave should be a little higher, but I don't know. I don't think the total costs for all the research and development done in secret at Wayne Enterprises is included either. Of course, either way, I'm betting the cost of being Batman won't outdo Iron Man ever, if only because Tony Stark is much less subtle in his everyday like and has quite the lavish lifestyle. Cool?
