Inflation is a Bummer: The Cost of Superhero-Dom Before and After

Mashable has a few new superhero infographics for us to gobble up, and these have a real jaw-dropping quality about them. They compare how much it would cost to be various superheroes now versus when they were created, and the difference in some cases is staggering. (Like Batman, to the right. Real estate is the kicker—which we really should have expected.)

Take a look-see at the whole group! We were particularly amused to find that Wolverine is worth oodles purely due to his skeleton, and the cost of dating gouges the pockets of poor Peter Parker a lot more than it used to. Also, Bruce Banner’s degrees have made a delirious jump in cost. Ah, education.
