How Much Would It Cost To Be Batman Or Superman? [Infographic]

Batman and Superman do battle in the much-awaited Dawn of Justice film which hits UK cinemas this week. Now, we all know how these two big dogs of the superhero world match up when it comes to the strength stakes, but have you ever wondered how much they spend every year?

The people at Wizzcash have been wondering just that. So, just in time for the launch of the film, they’ve put together an infographic that compares Batman and Superman’s annual living costs — with tongue firmly in cheek, by the looks of it.

Take a look at the infographic below:

    Superman’s annual costs

    Residence: £605

    Renting a snazzy apartment doesn’t come cheap. But don’t forget: Superman has access to a secret ice cave where he makes plans for heroic action. So it looks like he’s got some sort of shared ownership thing going on. Wink.

    Food: £70

    Superman’s an alien from the planet Krypton. So, he probably doesn’t really need to eat. But to ensure that no one wonders what he’s really up to, he eats from time to time, especially when he’s in Clark Kent mode.

    Emergency fund: £35

    Even superheroes like to put a bit away for a rainy day. Superman keeps a few bob in his back pocket in case he needs to take the subway.

    Keeping fit: £639

    Superman’s an alien from the planet Krypton. He has super-amazing strength. But, you’ll be surprised to hear that he still likes to work out — mainly so he can fit in with his city-living colleagues.

    Phoning home: £178

    Any fan of the Superman films knows that for Supe, family’s a big deal. But when your brethren live on another planet, those phone calls aren’t cheap. He had a special phone line installed in his ice cave for Sunday night chats with the fam.

    Kryptonite insurance: £1.4m

    Superman and kryptonite don’t mix — it’s his weakness, after all. So, he takes out special insurance to make sure he’s covered in the event of a krypto-attack.

    Laser eyes check up: £500

    Superman’s laser eyes allow him to do all sorts of things, including pin villains up against the wall and burn through steel. But even superheroes need to get their eyes checked from time to time.

    Suit: £17

    Superman doesn’t need to worry about investing in a high-tech suit to protect him.

    Vehicle: £0

    This is one spending area where Superman really has the upper hand over Batman. Who needs a car when you can fly?

    Total cost of being Superman

    Adding up that Kryptonite insurance, his direct line to Krypton, and special powers check-up, the total cost of being Superman is £1.4 million per year.

    Batman’s annual costs

    Residence: £6.3m

    Batman needs to pay for the upkeep of his lavish gothic mansion, and that doesn’t come cheap.

    Food: £718,000

    Batman’s human. Which is great, aside from the fact that he must eat if he is to survive. Wizzcash have put Batman’s annual food bill at more than £700,000.

    Emergency fund: £18m

    Unlike Superman, Batman needs plenty in the bank should a sticky situation arise. Given he might need to maintain or replace his essential Batmobile or his high-tech suit at any moment, the superhero has a reserve fund of £18 million.

    Staying in shape: £1.3m

    Superman’s natural abilities mean he doesn’t have to worry too much about working out, but Batman does need to maintain his physique. His high-tech gym equipment costs him millions.

    Bat attractor: £360,000

    Batman’s bat attractor means he can summon his flying friends — a massive help in times of need. But those ultrasonic special rays can’t be bought off the shelf.

    Elbow and knee pads: £14

    This is the one expense Batman scrimps on. He was once quoted £1 million for some custom elbow pads with bulletproof armour and built-in tracking. He passed — his generic brand suits him just fine.

    Charity donation: £838

    Batman’s Corporate Social Responsibility policy sees him make an annual donation to the Bat Conservation Trust.

    Batmobile: 6.2m

    It gets more expensive each year: experts believe the Batmobile in the new film costs in excess of £6 million.

    Total cost of being Batman

    When you add up keeping fit, maintaining the Batmobile, that annual charity donation, and a whole lot more, the total cost of being Batman is a whopping £33.6 million per year.

    The winner: Superman

    That’s right! When it comes to saving their cold, hard cash, Superman is the clear winner.
