| Cool Stuff Found

The life of a crime fighter comes at a price, and thanks to inflation that price is going up, up, and away all the time.

Batman is the most expensive coming in at nearly US$135 million today, and Superman is the cheapest at $29,434. In 1939, Batman's expenses came in at $10,253 and Superman's at $994, which apparently means Kryptonians are fine with a frugal lifestyle.
