Most of us have, at some point, dreamed about what it might be like to be super rich. You could fly off to a stunning tropical island whenever you wanted in your own private jet, and you’d probably own the island, too. Or, if philanthropy is more your thing, you’d be able to help out as many charities as your heart desired, making a difference in so many lives. Wealthy people have always captured the imagination, and that might be why there are so many rich people in books, movies and TV shows. We’ve come up with thirteen of the richest fictional characters of all time, and found out what their fortunes might be worth today! Check it out!
Bruce Wayne (aka ‘Batman’) is able to fund his crime-fighting hobby with the $9.2 billion company he inherited from his parents!
Tywin Lannister is rich enough to control armies but he’s still nowhere near the richest on this list, with a fortune equivalent to about $1.8 billion.
Being a superhero is definitely a game for the rich. Tony Stark can get all the coolest ‘Iron Man’ gadgets with his $12.4 billion!
If you liked the ‘Tomb Raider’ games, you’ll know that Lara Croft isn’t just a treasure hunter, but also a the 11th Countess of Abbingdon, a member of the landed gentry. Between her two endeavors, she’s in possession of a cool $1.3 billion.
Smaug, from ‘Lord of the Rings’, doesn’t care about anything other than his giant pile of gold. It’s paid off, though, as he’s amassed something like $54.1 billion.
Walden Schmidt, from ‘Two and a Half Men’, made his fortune and then some. He has roughly $1.3 billion!
Ah, Mr. Burns… the billionaire everyone loves to hate. He might not be as wealthy as some on this list, but $1.5 billion ain’t bad!
