So here’s a pretty cool infographic for all of you today. Have you ever wondered, if it were even a possibility, how much it would cost to be iron man? Not only does Tony Stark have a bad ass suit but he has the lifestyle to match it. The cars, the clothes they’re essential to being the rich playboy superhero that Iron Man is. Batman may have the batmobile but Iron Man has an armada of high end cars to mention some there is his 1967 Shelby Cobra, Saleen 7, Audi R8 Spyder, and his Rolls Royce Phantom. That’s just naming a few and that is already over one million dollars worth of straight swag.

Taking a quick look at his various suits only one is under a million dollars, the rest are over ten million. Talk about being a one percenter am I right? Anyway enjoy today’s infographic and don’t forget to share. [via]

    Nerd alert. 
    If you want to be technical the Mark 1 suit was not just given to him at no cost, it was made from deconstructed bombs and equipment, which are very expensive. and the War Machine suit is the Mark2 suit just re-purposed by the U.S. Government but maybe the upgrade costs were around that ballpark. 
    Interesting tho.

    The numbers are so seriously BS — Stark is his own team of scientists, he only needs the cost of the materials (a few million). By contrast if the aerospace industry did it on commission for him, it would cost conservatively ten times the space shuttle. ie: 10 x $196Bn.

    If the aerospace industry did it on commission, they couldn’t – remember in Iron Man 1 when the power output of the Arc Reactor is given, and it’s something like 3 gigawatts? That’s the kind of power you actually need to pull off the suit’s performance, and that technology does not exist. You can’t store or generate that much power with so small a unit. In fact, I’m curious how they calculated it’s cost, as I suspect the actual sale price would be ‘more than all the money in the world’. Same with JARVIS. An AI for 10 million? Really? Meanwhile the HUD is WTF in the opposite direction.

    I suspect the values are something of a rough replacement cost drawn from the closest real-world equivalent. Except the HUD, which likely does include R&D cost of an early prototype…
