Cost of being Iron Man: $1.6 billion smackaroos
Some superheroes are born. Some are made. Some are made from a whole lot of money. We already know being Batman comes with a $2.8 million price tag for crime-fighting gear. Tony Stark, better known as Iron Man, would have to invest $1.6 billion for his fancy contraptions.
MoneySupermarket.com released an infographic estimating the cost of being Iron Man. The Arc reactor that keeps Iron Man alive and powers the suit would cost $36 million. The wrist-mounted anti-tank missile launchers would cost at least $1.5 million.
Iron Man's shoulder-mounted anti-personnel guns are a relative bargain at just $400,000. The artificial-intelligence system named Jarvis would need a $10 million investment to get up and running.
Those are just some of the price tags for the suit. Stark is also known for his extravagant lifestyle. The estimate on his ultra-modern house is $25 million. He also collects fancy rides such as a vintage Shelby Cobra, Audi R8, and 2014 Bugatti Veyron supercar. Those are quite a bit more expensive than a Camry.
If you're saving your pennies to be more like your iron idol, I would suggest aiming for the cheapest item on the list first: a 1932 Ford Flathead Roadster estimated at a mere $40,000. You may not be able to afford a suit like Iron Man, but at least you can drive his car.
