Batman’s Lifestyle Makes Crime Fighting Look Glamorous

Published

on

How lavish a lifestyle would you lead as the richest crime fighter on Earth? For Bruce Wayne of Gotham City, it means punching criminals while having a seat on the moon with the world’s most powerful superheroes—all with the best tools, costumes, and vehicles that money can buy.

Clothes Make The Batman

Ordinary folk might bargain shop for some SWAT gear, G.I. boots, and cheap leather gloves for our vigilante costume, but Batman doesn’t skimp when it comes to his getup. The Batsuit is fire-resistant, bullet-proof and covered in armored plates, pads, and forearm blades. It’s been estimated that his suit probably sets him back about $1,058,600, including a cape that can turn into a makeshift glider. And that’s just for one suit. Crime fighting is a tough job and requires different costumes for every season, as well as replacements for when they’re torn, dented, or (gasp) have bullet holes shot through them.

Batman’s Glamorous Tools Of The Trade

Imagine going out every day and throwing $10,000 of your money at people. In Batarangs alone, Batman likely uses four times that amount. And that is nothing compared to the cost of keeping grappling hook guns, thermal cameras, explosives, smoke pellets, lockpicks, gas masks, shark repellant, and other goodies—all in a little belt on his hip. He likely spends between $500,000 and $1 million on all these crime-fighting gadgets per year. But when you’re the top vigilante in the DC Universe, you’re worth it. If you’re going to have cool toys…we mean tools, then you need a cool ride or three to top it off.

Batman Always Rides In Style

While the down-and-out penny-pinching crimefighter might be forced to putter around in a jalopy, Batman uses armored cars and motorcycles to cruise around Gotham City. When crimes occur over the sea or air, his speedboat and jet are on-hand—equipped with the latest gadgets and weapons, of course, worth a cool estimated cost of $200,000,000 to buy, fuel, upgrade, and upkeep. And with so many gadgets, vehicles, and costume add-ons to keep track of, Batman needs a little help…

The Best Help Money Can Buy

While the wanna-be vigilantes spend their off-time washing their spandex at the laundromat, scraping together crimefighting gear, and microwaving cheap food, billionaire Batman leaves all those things to his trusted butler, Alfred Pennyworth. For the likes of Batman, not just any butler will do. Alfred is also Batman’s doctor, cook, maid, and overall crimefighting assistant, with annual pay likely exceeding $300,000, not including benefits. And when Alfred isn’t working all hours aiding in Batman’s vigilante agenda, he’s making sure Bruce Wayne has a fitting place to hang his cape and cowl…

A Home Fit For DC’s Top Hero

Of course, a billionaire would live in a mansion with all the amenities like a pool, gym, library, and a multitude of bedrooms and bathrooms. But Batman’s home is also equipped with hidden passageways and a secret lair underneath. There you’ll find the world’s most sophisticated computer, an underground river for a boat, and room to fit all of Batman‘s costumes, vehicles, lab, gym, medical facilities, and arsenal. This mansion comes at an estimated cost of $600,000,000. Then there are taxes and fuel costs to consider. If you need a little help imagining yourself living there, check out Google Maps’ tour of Bruce Wayne’s home and Batcave from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
