As Batman told Flash in Justice League, being rich was his only super power.
Over the years, Bruce Wayne has been known as one of the most wealthy characters in all of comics, paying for the newest technology for his suits and buying entire banks without a second thought.
As it turns out, Bruce isn't the only hero with deep pockets.
In fact, you may be surprised to learn that the Dark Knight of Gotham isn't even the wealthiest comic character out there.
The folks at GoBankingRates.com went back through the history of comics, crunched the numbers, and figured out who the richest heroes and villains in comics actually were.
Who's got the fattest wallet in all of comics? Here are the nine wealthiest heroes and villains, along with their estimated net worth.
Magneto - $500 Million
Of course a guy who can control metal is surrounded by coin!
While everyone knows about Magneto's powers and leadership skills, it's easy to forget that the guy is incredibly intelligent. Throughout the comics he has shown a mastery of genetic engineering and particle physics.
Magneto's ability to literally create mutants would revolutionize modern technology, so his vast wealth shouldn't come as much of a surprise.prevnext
Professor X - $750 Million
Magneto and Professor X have battled it out over generations of Marvel comics, but Xavier easily wins the war of largest paycheck.
Before becoming a teacher to young mutants, Charles Xavier earned PhDs in the fields of genetics, biophysics, psychology and anthropology. He used all of that knowledge to build the famous machine, Cerebro, which can locate mutants across the world.
Between Cerebro, the school and his mansion, Xavier's assets alone are worth a fortune.prevnext
Dr. Doom - $800 Million
Like Xavier, Dr. Doom is a genius in multiple fields. However, unlike Xavier, Doom is one hell of a land-owner.
The villain conquered the country of Latveria, which now completely belongs to him. Can you imagine the kind of money you make when you own an entire country?
As we mentioned earlier, in addition to his assets, Doom is incredibly gifted in cybernetics and robotics. With a ton of patents under his belt, the guy is able to rake in money at will.prevnext
Lex Luthor - $810 Million
As every comic fans know, Lex Luthor is practically made of money.
After starting with very little, Luthor founded LexCorp, turning it into a cash machine. His success with the company has led to multiple other ventures, including a run for the presidency and the purchase of The Daily Planet.
One look at his Kryptonite suit and it's easy to understand just how much money Luthor is hauling in.prevnext
Emma Frost - $900 Million
Emma Frost has had several different iterations over the years but, at the core of them all, she'll always have a background in money.
The Hellfire Club member is the CEO of multibillion-dollar company Frost International, which she inherited from her parents. That wasn't enough though, as Emma used her cunning personality to grow the company to new heights.prevnext
Batman - $999.99 Million
You might not have guessed it, but Batman doesn't top the richest superhero list.
Despite owning his own company, as well as Wayne Tower and Wayne Manor, Bruce has often been referred to in the comics as a "millionaire." You'd think he made more than that but the comics don't lie!
With that in mind, he bumps right up to the edge of a billion, making him the fourth richest superhero around.prevnext
Green Arrow - $3 Billion
Oliver Queen is often compared to Batman, and not just because he fights crime from the shadows.
Queen's family has always been rich and, when his parents died, he inherited Queen Industries. How else do you think he is able to afford all of that technology?
Between his own company's earnings and various other investments, the billionaire playboy has nothing to worry about when it comes to getting paid.prevnext
Iron Man - $30 Billion
Tony Stark has always had money, from the time was born to the time he became Iron Man. The guy has existed in wealth from the beginning.
Don't diminish Tony's hard work though. In addition to the Iron Man suit technology, Tony took Stark industries to heights his father only imagined, designing weapons for the entire world.
With all of the patents attached to his name, it would be hard to imagine Tony Stark ever running out of spare cash.prevnext
Black Panther - $90 Trillion
Did you see this one coming?? Not only is Black Panther the richest hero in all of comics, but it isn't even close!0comments
What people seem to forget is Wakanda, the country that King T'Challa rules over, is the wealthiest nation in the entire world. It contains technology that the rest of the globe has only ever dreamed of, and it sits on the only Vibranium mine known to man.
According to the comics, Vibranium costs $10,000 per gram, and the mine beneath Wakanda is said to have 10,000 tons of it. No matter how you slice it, that's a boat-load of cash.prev
