The 20 Richest Comic Book Characters of All Time

Here's a list of the richest comic book heroes and wealthiest villains of all time, ranked from richest (#1) to not-so-richest (#20). Who are the richest comic book characters? These are the wealthiest heroes and villains in comicbookdom with a few ground rules. First off, we've only included the mainstream universes of the "Big 2", with one big glaring exception that just HAD to be on the list, because if we would've included anything independent it would have opened it up to pretty much the entire medium. So, who are the richest comic characters of all time? And now, without further delay, here are the most loaded characters in all of comics. Also, we didn't assign any dollar value, as we believe estimates based on our own world make absolutely 0 sense.

    Black Panther

    Being the first black superhero in mainstream American comic books, Black Panther tops this list as the most realistically rich superhero (or supervillain) in either DC or Marvel.

    Why is this? Well, for one, he runs the entire country of Wakanada (a fictional African country in the Marvel universe), which just happens to be the world's only deposit of the most precious metal: Vibranium.

    You know that indestructible metal that Wolverine's bones are incased in? Vibranium is the stronger metal and T'Challa (the Black Panther's real identity) owns all of it, and often has to protect it.

    So, from the perspective of natural resources, supply vs. demand, and how much he has at his disposal if he just sells a tiny bit of what he has an endless amount of -- T'Challa, The Black Panther, is arguably the richest superhero in comics.

    BONUS: He's considered one of the eight smartest people in the entire Marvel Universe.
