James Bond is the world’s most revered secret agent. Since the first film in the franchise was released[Dr. No in 1962] 007 has blown-up more buildings, crashed more cars and saved the world more times than I can count. At his disposal are lavishly kitted out supercars and Q-customised gadgets. He has a taste for extravagant beverages such as Champagne and vodka Martinis and is sent on numerous trips to exotic locations. To top if off most of the action such as gun fights and car chases occur while he is wearing an exquisitely tailored Savile Row suit.

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 MoneySupermarket.com, 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. [Read more...]
