It would cost about $300 Million to become Batman.

Beneath the cape and mask of Batman, there is a real man, charming billionaire Bruce Wayne. This begs the question: why haven’t any real-life wealthy men or women taken over the persona and created it in reality? Maybe it’s all the training they’d have to go thorough, maybe they don’t feel that there’s a need for it, or maybe it’s the price tag. The popular Batman fan book Batman Unauthorized did a study to find out just how much it would cost to get all the Bat-gear. The study found that would-be Dark Knights would have to shell out around $300 million for it all. Other estimates conducted by a different group lists it above the $1 billion mark. The Batmobile alone is roughly $3.5 million!

Batman and Wolverine once merged.

A hybrid of two of the most beloved superheroes of all-time? Awesome! In 1996, Legends of the Dark Claw was released as part of the Amalgam Universe. The book chronicled the adventures of Dark Claw aka Logan Wayne, a hybrid of Bruce Wayne and James Howlett (more commonly known as Logan). This was one of the rare Marvel and DC crossovers from that time which also included a character named Super Solider who was an amalgamation of Superman and Captain America; and Spider-Boy, an amalgamation of Ben Reilly and Conner Kent.

The origin story for Dark Claw merged the two origin stories of the original characters. In this case, it was Logan who witnessed his parents' murder when he was a child. Instead of remaining in Gotham, he elected instead to move to Canada which is where a lot of Wolverine's origin took place.
