How Much Does It Cost To Be A Superhero?

It’s a tough life being a superhero, what with all the late sleepless nights, juggling work and fighting a constant stream of baddies.

And that’s not even accounting for the substantial cost that goes into crime fighting today. It’s not so bad if you happen to be a billionaire playboy industrialist, but it must be hard if you’re still a student or can’t hold down a steady job because of anger management issues.

It was probably easier being a superhero back in the good old days when everything was cheaper. But how much cheaper was it back then?

These infographics, created by Emil Lendof, Bob Al-Greene and Nina Frazier for Mashable, explores the annual cost of being a superhero in real life, comparing the prices between then and now (taking inflation into account).
