Who Is The World’s Richest Superhero?

Quick, who’s the richest superhero? If you answered “Batman”, you need to read more comic books. The answer is the Black Panther, also known as King T’Chaka, ruler of Wakanda — only (fictional) country to have vibranium (the stuff Captain America’s shield is made out of). Controlling the world’s vibranium supply has made him filthy rich, with an estimated value of $500 billion.

Next comes the superhero known as Iron Man. Tony Stark runs one of Earth’s biggest companies, Stark Industries, which manufactures advanced weapons and defense technologies, including the mega helicarrier used by S.H.I.E.L.D. Tony’s net worth is estimated at a whopping $100 billion. In comparison, Batman is looking like a pauper with his measly net worth of just $80 billion. Although Bruce Wayne runs Wayne Enterprises and lives in a huge mansion with his personal batcave, he spends way too much money on his toys.

    I think the Fantastic Four would be worth a mint; didn't The Thing come into a lot of money because he hadn't been claiming something all the other members of the FF were (so he got the collective sum) or something? That must mean they have a considerable income.

    "Black Panther, also known as King T’Chaka, ruler of Wakanda" His name is T'Challa; T'Chaka was Black Panther's father.

    Richie Rich and Scrooge McDuck are Superheroes as much as Lex Luthor, Dr. Doom and Magneto. They are villain's, not superheroes!! So why can't Richie Rich & Scrooge McDuck be on there?

      Luthor reluctantly aided the superheroes once or twice, as did Doom and Magneto (Magneto actually *ran* the Xavier School for several years!)
      Sometimes the line between "superheroes" and "villains" (note there's *no* apostrophe in a plural!) can get very blurred...

    To those interested in amassing money - yes. :-)
    Warren Buffet is a superhero to investors.

    Does superhero always have to be somebody who wears his colored BVDs outside his tights? :P

    Warren "Angel" Worthington is widely portrayed as the money behind the X-Men and controls a multi-billion dollar company.

    The Green Goblin is probably also on that level since he's the CEO of a huge defense contractor.

    The Sub-Mariner, Aquaman and Dr. Doom are also heads of state with vast personal wealth.

    There's also DC's "Green Team" of teen trillionaires, Scrooge McDuck and Richie Rich as long as we're talking about comic book heroes who have wealth as a super power.

    Now, as to why Hank Pym and Reed Richards couldn't each spend an afternoon inventing something and then engaging in a little recreational market manipulation with the proceeds, I'll never know.
