The Cost of Being Batman [Infographic]

I don’t care how old you are, what gender you belong to, where you come from or what flavour of ice cream is your favourite (chocolate, obvs): at one point or another, you’ve dreamed about being Batman. All those cool gadgets, the Batmobile, the costume, an elderly butler waiting on you hand and foot – you’d have it all as Gotham’s caped crusader! Well, except parents. They kinda died in front of your eyes when you were 8 years old, which led to long-lasting psychological problems, which is probably why you dress up as a giant bat at night and go about beating the crap out of people. But hey, look, a utility belt!

However, after reading this new infographic from, which painstakingly picks apart the true cost of being Batman, your dreams may be shattered in an instant (yay!). It seems that any real-life Batman adventures would in fact consist of popping on a balaclava, stapling a beach towel to your shoulders, driving around town in a rusty rental and thwacking troublemaking teens over the head with a baseball bat (maybe that’s why they call you Batman). All I can say is this: that Bruce Wayne, he’s lucky he’s a multi-billionaire.

I currently live in the USA, but I learned to speak fluent Italian from my mother who grew up in Italy. I am planning to move to Sicily one day with my family and visit all Europe. I am passionate about abstract photography and I have an extensive collection of old cameras and lenses that date back to the early 20th century. I make sure to meditate for at least 15 minutes each day in the mornings, or else I can't concentrate on anything I have to do.
