List RulesVote for the people that are for sure (probably) plotting to destroy the world right now.

It's a real mystery how you get to be one of the ultra-wealthy elite of the world. Investments, probably? An inheritance? Even then, how does an inheritance turn into an Everest-sized pile of money that one rolls around in naked? Even if you don’t have what it takes (such as rich parents) to become a fat cat, you can probably spot a fat cat with aspirations to become something more nefarious - a supervillain. It might sound far-fetched, but follow along. Like Rome, supervillains aren’t built in a day. It takes time, effort, usually a large vat of acid, and definitely A LOT of money to make a full-fledged, real-life supervillain. This list is filled with some of the wealthiest people in the world who might just be aching to build a death ray.

From internet billionaires to old money, they’ve all made this list of wealthy folks who maybe, just maybe, want to become supervillains. Some of them might want to turn the world into their own Wild West theme park, while others probably wish they could force us to wear those skinny sweatpants that are also somehow baggy - you never know what you’re going to get with supervillains.

Vote up the gazillionaire you think is closest to becoming a supervillain!
