The Cost of Being Iron Man [Infographic]

Yesterday we took a look at the estimated cost of being Batman; today we’re looking at Iron Man and, let us tell you, it’s not exactly cheap building a technologically-rich exoskeleton.

Looking at the estimated development and construction costs, it’s a good thing Mr. Stark has Stark Industries behind him.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson.

    So wait? All I need is to come up with $36,000,000 and I can have a chest mounted Arc Reactor Nuclear power source? I’ll get right on it!

    I know this is just for fun, but they got the arc reactor thing wrong; it powered all of the suits, including Mark I and II.

    The arc reactor’s not nuclear. And it powered EVERY Iron Man suit, including the original.

    J.A.R.V.I.S. is the AI’s name. It is a refrence to the Avengers butler but it is also an acronym .
