Guesstimating: The (Alleged) Cost Of Being Iron Man

July 28, 2012


Note: This is only the portion for Iron Man's suit, hit the jump for the entire graphic.

Hot on the heels of last week's cost of being Batman infographic comes this one for Iron Man. The total (entirely guesstimated) cost of being Iron Man? $1,612,717,000. Of course, just like in the Batman version, they failed to consider the REAL cost of being Iron Man: all the expensive booze and beautiful women and fancy dinners and tropical vacations, f*** this guy.

Hit the jump and start arguing how grossly inaccurate all the numbers are.


Thanks to Lisa, who agrees the real cost of being Iron Man is everyone singing the Black Sabbath song whenever they see you. Great song, but it would get tiring.

    110 Million for an Iron man Suit? Id pay that. I dont need a big house or a fleet of fancy cars so ill pass on them.

  • Sergeant_Poop

    How much for Gwyneth Paltrow?

  • Guest

    I think it would just be cheaper to have a flying rocket tank. Its pretty much the same thing.

    Superhuman powers: Priceless

  • How is he superhuman? He's insanely smart and rich but he doesn't have super powers...

  • sorrykb

    He doesn't. That's what the suit is for.

  • Brandon

    While the Mark 1 didn't cost Tony anything, it would still cost the average Joe if they wanted to make it themselves.

  • Eric Hauswirth

    Why are the costs in dollars, but the spelling in British English? Manoeuvering, stabilisation?

  • Chris

    He *could* be Canadian...

  • bonadea23

    Fortunately according to this equally fictitious list of Forbes 15 most wealthy fictional characters, he has it covered.

  • Anas Patel

    I would rather be Batman, half the cost and still kicks ass

    Arc reactor 36mil? lol what? An energy source that small, that generates that vast amount of energy, being THAT safe? Yeah, thats worth alot fuckin more than 36mil.

  • It's not how much it's worth, it's how much it cost to make/produce/develop

  • Matty Spinny

    i thought the arc reactor was a magnetic power source not nuclear.

  • Ed

    That drawing of Ironman is awful, they all are, but the one at the top is shameful. It looks like something ate Ironman and took a loose dump on the page.

  • HackTheGibson

    It looks like someone took an image of ironman and used the stamp filter. Don't think they were drawn at all, just altered enough to not get sued to oblivion.

  • Bruce Tahoe

    I'll take the money, Bob

  • The Chive was one of their references?

  • Mark 1 sounds good enough for me.

  • Zane Davis one is going to say it? Alright, I will. This is HORRIFYING use of live trace (or a similar tool) from Photoshop or Illustrator.
