Black PantherBeing 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.<< PREV 1 of 20 NEXT >>
