No Ikea trips for these five superheroes

Superheroes all have rich and developed backstories featuring all the important stuff like what happened to their loved ones, their greatest weakness or fear and whether or not there is hope for redemption in this crazy, villainous world. But at the end of the day, even awesome superheroes need to rest their heads. Here are five of the most well-known superhero homes.

1. Superman

Address: 2318 Main St. #207, Metropolis

If you think about it, Superman is a country boy who grew up and moved to the city. As a result, all he ever seems to desire is a normal life with Lois and this desire is incredibly evident in his apartment decor choices. Granted, this is a beautiful, probably very well-located apartment in a large, urban American city (like, say, New York?), but, hey, he’s Superman. Still, we do feel that his choice of primary colours in his decor scheme could give a little too much away.

2. Spiderman

Address: 187 Chrystie Street, Manhattan, NY

Unlike Superman, whose main concern is keeping his super identity hidden, Spiderman always had a bit of a struggle balancing his responsibility as a superhero with his everyday life. This well-meaning, barely-an-adult struggled to make rent and keep a home which is probably why his home is a cramped, dingy studio apartment in New York City. Truth be told, Spiderman’s digs are probably the most modest of the superhero homes.

3. Captain America

We don’t see very much of Captain America’s crib but what we do see seems to fit the man and the myth. As a traditional man, it’s not surprising to see his place is clean, conservative and reflects his straight-edge attitude. He’s an army man and decorates as such with clean corners and neutral colours.

4. Tony Stark

Address: Stark Towers, Manhattan, NY

He’s Tony Stark: International bad boy extraordinaire, super genius, man of style and super-cool action hero known as Iron Man. Certainly, all of these sides to his personality are reflected in his apartment choice. And yet his stylish home seems to outshine his ego. Stark’s pad combines ultra-modern luxury with complex super inventions of his own making it one of the sweetest superhero digs imaginable.

5. Batman

Address: Gotham City (aka: Brooklyn, NY)

Batman is a man of mystery, so it only stands to reason that his home would initiate a tonne of curiosity. According to Bob Kane and Bill Finger—the creators of Batman—this superhero needed almost 7,000 square-feet of a monolithic mansion to feel at home. This enormous abode overlooks Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge and this gorgeous 1914 landmark features not one but four huge clocktowers. It says mysterious refinement in a way that is perfect for the brooding, rich, Bruce Wayne.
