Superheroes can be pretty high maintenance, and the cost of their second job saving the planet can be rather sky high as in the case of Batman’s Bruce Wayne or Ironman 3′s Tony Stark. Not the case with Man Of Steel’s Clark Kent (Henry Cavill). The other two definitely live in the 1% of American wealth, but what keeps Superman so grounded is his modest beginnings when he landed on earth.
Plus he was pretty much ahead society acceptance in having two dads (Jor-El played by Russell Crowe & Jonathan Kent played by Kevin Costner) before this country realized that it wasn’t so bad.
After some came up with a cost analysis of how much it cost to be Bruce Wayne & Tony Stark, others were curious to see how much Clark Kent’s lifestyle would be. He definitely fits in easily with the way things are economically and knows how to stretch a buck not to mention really stretch that Superman suit tightly over his body.
Check out the infographic below and you’ll be astounded that some can be a superhero on a Dollar Tree budget. You can hit the pic and it’ll get much bigger to check out things even better.
Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
