#5. How Much Damage Did the Avengers Do to Manhattan?
Kinetic Analysis Corp., a group specializing in figuring out how much disasters cost, got bored enough to do a detailed analysis of how much damage was done during the finale of The Avengers. Let’s just say that it’s going to take a while for the New York economy to recover. Using complex computer simulations and fancy math with, like, letters instead of numbers (so you know that it’s hardcore), a team lead by Chuck Watson and Sara Jupin put the Avengers’ damage at a mind-boggling $160 billion, making it the most costly disaster in human history. That includes 9/11, Katrina, and the 2011 tsunami that hit Japan (the last one costing “only” $122 billion in damages).
