Just How Much Cash Would You Need To Be Batman?

We all know that Bruce Wayne is incredibly rich so money is no object for him, but it is for the rest of us. Just how much cash would the Average Joe have to collect if he wanted to masquerade as Batman in his own personal Gotham? The people who figured out how much it would cost to build the Death Star have the answer, and it’s a lot—but not quite as much as you might expect.

Once you figure in the cost of everything from Kevlar to memory cloth and helmets to the Tumbler, then you’re looking at a cool $2.8 million (not including the new gear in TDKR). Remember though, Bruce Wayne is rich so this is just a drop in the bucket for him. How rich? They’ve also figured out that number and it’s about $11.6 billion. Yeah, you want to be the Bat, you better have the cash.
