The 20 Richest Comic Book Characters of All Time

Here's a list of the richest superheroes, comic book characters and wealthiest villains of all time, ranked from richest to not-so-richest, and whose favorite color is green. Comic book characters list many various ways to make money, but they’re keeping those kinds of secrets to themselves. Who are the richest comic book characters? These are the wealthiest heroes and villains in comic bookdom with a few ground rules. First off, we've only included the mainstream universes of the "Big 2" (Marvel Comics and DC Comics) 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. 
 

This isn’t the place to find Marvel Comics’ net worth or even Tony Stark net worth, because there’s not a calculator close by that will compute those kinds of numbers. Funny comic book characters even the smartest superheroes out there may not quite make them one of the richest superheroes, though we do have a few super smart comic book characters here, like Lex Luthor. 
 

The richest fictional character may be right here on this list of comic book characters, though, we’re not sure how much Lucy made at that psychiatry booth (she has no paper trail). All comic book characters have the potential, but only the top 20 Marvel villains and superheroes here (and DC) made it here. This list of comic book heroes and villains that are filthy rich will make you jealous you don’t have a slice. 
 

Also, we didn't assign any dollar value, as we believe estimates based on our own world make absolutely zero 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 it – 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.
