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.
