How Much Would It Cost To Be Captain America?

HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST TO BE CAPTAIN AMERICA? He's the leader of Earth's mightiest heroes, and one of the most iconic comic book characters of the last 75 years. As Captain America gears up to take on Iron Man in "Captain America: Civil War', we wondered, how much would it cost to be Steve Rogers in real life? PROJECT REBIRTH - $516,000 The serum which gave Steve Rogers his powers was created by the US government during World War Two. Albert Einstein was paid an annual salary of $10,000, so we can assume project leaders Abraham Erskine and Howard Stark were paid the same for their contributions and that other lab costs would have added another $10,000. Taking into account inflation, the cost of Project Rebirth today would be $516,000. MOTORCYCLE - $7,500 Captain America has always been a fan of motorcycles, and rode a 2014 Harley-Davidson 750 during his escape from the Triskelion in both 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'. UNIFORMS - $3,720 Comprising of his gloves, helmet, uniform, boots and belt, Captain America has had three different suits, which we estimate to be worth around $3,720. This Harley would set you back, at list price, around $7,500. SHIELD - $54,431.100 Captain America's shield is made from the fictional element Vibranium, which is what makes it indestructible. It's stated in Issue 607 of Fantastic Four that the material costs $10,000 FIREARMS - $900 per gram. Whilst he prefers to use his trusty shield, Captain America has also been known to carry According to Marvel themselves, the shield weighs in at 12 pounds, making the shield worth a whopping $54 million! a gun. As an ex-US Army soldier, the standard issue firearm for the US military is the Sig Sauer P226, which costs $900. SALARY - $155,000 P.A. Employed by the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division, (S.H.I.E.L.D.) Captain America would likely take home a wage similar to that of a special agent at the CIA. This can vary between $75,000 and $155,000, but we reckon he'd be at the top end of that scale!
