How much money would it cost to be Captain America?

Want to be an All-American superhero with a heart of gold? You only need a little over 54 million bucks, a time traveling device to send you back to the 1940s, a good vibranium source and a healthy budget for food. Movieclips Trailers analyzed the total cost of being Captain America and after accounting for inflation came up with this number: $54,977,922.05.

That's cheaper than being Batman! And could actually be even cheaper if ol' Cap'n used a different shield. His vibranium shield alone costs $54,431,100 to make. That puts the rest of the cost of being Captain America at under 500 grand. Totally reasonable! Watch the calculations below:
