Man, when I was a kid, you could get groin armor for a few hundred bucks, a handshake, and a smile. Or maybe I'm thinking of something else. Either way, not everyone can be Batman and this infographic pretty much sums up why. If you've already got an iron-clad sense of justice and a bit of righteous fury, all you need is a winning super-mega-power winning lottery ticket. But don't think it's all about the gadgets and toys. $1.5 million of those funds go to years of military training and multiple engineering degrees, so expect to spend lots of time and effort as well as money trying to emulate the lifestyle of the dark and knightly.
And, sure, Alfred doesn’t want for anything, but considering how much bat crap he has to deal with (figuratively and literally), you’d think Bruce would pay him a bit more. I’m sure Alfie blows through at least half his annual salary during his yearly two week European vacation. Birds and blow ain’t cheap.
