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.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to.

    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!

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

    Just A Really Very Inteligent System. Well half the battle is over. Oops wrong comic.
