Superheroes Then & Now


Superheroes are awesome, but they are not invulnerable to the economy and inflation. Some things go much more expensive throughout all these years. For example, the Batmobile in 1939 would cost just $600, while the cost in 2013 would jump to $18 million. Emil Lendof put together some really cool infographics showing the price of being a superhero now comparing with their origins, including Superman, Batman, Spider-man, Hulk and Wolverine

Got the opportunity to work on the layout of text and graphics on these Superhero infographics for Mashable, sponsored by Samsung. The illustrations were done by Bob Al-Greene (@bobalgreene with art direction from Nina Frazier (@ninafrazier).
