It’s been a rough week in the financial sector. With banks faltering, the stock market has taken a tumble, the dollar’s dipping and the yen’s a bit shaky. Now the government is considering an estimated $700 billion bailout. One has to wonder, how have our heroes fared?
Last year, Forbes estimated Bruce Wayne’s net worth at around $7 billion. Tony Stark is close, at $6 billion. Both men earn a solid chunk of their change from defense contracts, which should find their respective nuts well covered in the current geopolitical climate with steady cash flow.
Their other investments? Let’s just say that Batman might want to watch how many of those Bat-a-rangs he tosses around, and perhaps Iron Man needs to stick to one suit for a while. Those things don’t grow on trees.
