The sad events in Colorado notwithstanding, public interest in the latest instalment in the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises, is riding high. Aspiring Caped Crusaders might wonder what it actually costs to become Batman. No problem. Moneysupermarket.com spells it out for you in an infographic. (Click the image above to see the full infographic.)
The financial site explains: “We’ve all wanted to be Batman at one time or another, but how much would it cost to actually become Batman?
“Of all the superheroes, Batman’s wealth is significantly larger than most – with the possible exception of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. Wayne Manor costs $600,000,000 alone with an annual running cost of $37,000. Top that off with $80 million worth of vehicles and a stockpile of weapons totalling more than $10,000 and you will have to save pretty hard to afford to become Batman.
“Of course Batman hasn’t saved or taken out a loan to build up his wealth. He was born in to the Wayne family fortune and now owns Wayne Enterprises, a multinational organisation with divisions in technology, shipping, defence, chemicals and many more. Wayne Enterprises (not included in the infographic) is worth a total of $7 billion.
