Remember when you were a kid and your friends would always ask you if you could choose “what superpower would you want”? Well, my answer then is the same as today, MONEY! Think about all the good you could do with extreme wealth. These next comic-book characters sometimes get criticized for not having powers but as the saying goes, money talks and BS walks.
Check out the wealthiest superheroes of all time.
**Honorable mention to Namor the Sub-Mariner & Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias)
This story is a familiar one. Green Arrow inherited the company (Queen Industries) that made him rich from his parents shortly after their untimely death and decides to use his wealth to become a superhero. Sound at all familiar? He’s not exactly a great businessman but he is an accomplished superhero. He sometimes is dressed similar to Robin Hood but he doesn’t need to steal from the rich to give to the poor. HE IS THE RICH!
Black Panther first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966). He was the first black superhero in mainstream comics. His biggest assets has to be the fact that he runs the entire country of Wakanada (a fictional African country in the Marvel universe). That alone is pretty boss. The country is filled with all sort of rare metals such as Vibranium, a metal even stronger than Animantium.
You could make a very strong case that the Black Panther is the richest superhero ever.
Owner of Wayne Enterprises, billionaire Bruce Wayne is the richest self-made superhero in the comic universe. The world’s greatest detective may not need superpowers of the traditional sense but he seems to need money. Well, maybe not need but all that money doesn’t hurt. To get the funding for the cave, car, boat and all those wonderful toys you have to be loaded. I mean Black Bat Cards “don’t leave the cave without it” money.
Next up is the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist Tony Stark also known as Ironman. Stark went to MIT at the age of 15 and then, after his parents’ death, inherited Stark Industries. Since then he blew through enough money to build Stark Towers fund everybody’s favorite super team the Avengers and just life that rock star lifestyle.
If you came into money would you fight crime or would you just spend money like there was no next week?!?
