He was the father of Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion Lannister, and sole grandfather of the incest-born Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen Baratheon.As it currently stands, Tywin of Game of Thrones fame is positioned as the head of House Lannister, Lord of Casterly Rock, Warden of the West, Lord Paramount of the Westerlands.Much of his wealth has recently been poured into combatting the wide range of enemies which face the family who ‘always pay their debts’, and as a result the future of his fortune currently lies in the balance.
7 – RICHIE RICH Worth: $5.8BN
Richie Rich, the only child of industrialist Mr Richard Rich Sr, currently resides in Richville, where he lives the life of a poor little rich kid. His activities include occasionally attending school, spending time with his robotic cleaner Irona and Butler Cadbury.Eventually it all gets kind of boring unless you have someone to share it with, and friends don’t often come cheap when they find out you have a surplus amount of cash. Luckily Richie’s parents are good enough folks that they’ve taught him how to pick the right people to share his life with. It also helps that his friends actually want to be around him regardless of his money.
6 –BRUCE WAYNE Worth: $9.2BN
Another guy born into his fortune, Wayne actually needs this kind of money to fund his extracurricular night life.Bruce Wayne and his various Lamborghinis get almost as much face-time in the Nolan franchise as his masked alter ego, spending his time attending elite social functions, and ‘buying things which aren’t for sale.’ Parallels have been drawn between Wayne, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and Zorro, each of whom disguise their heroic nature behind a the mask of a vapid socialite.
5 – TONY STARK Worth: $12.4BN

At last, one of the few billionaires that is actually some fun. Tony fully enjoys having money and doesn’t lament spending it because his company makes it hand over fist every day. Tony Stark built on his father’s success by expanding Stark Industries and developing the Iron Man suit. In the later films Stark is increasingly portrayed as a philanthropist, who works to develop methods for the production of clean energy and moves away from the armament industries. Despite this change of heart Stark never seems to lose his insufferable rich kid edge.
4 – CARLISLE CULLEN Worth: $46BN

When you’re almost four centuries old you’ve seen enough and done enough to know that investing in certain commodities might be a good idea. And after three centuries and more that interest can certainly accrue. To watch the film you might have guessed that the Cullens were a legitimately rich bunch, but in terms of just how much it wasn’t really discussed that often.This said, aside from the cost of minimalist homes, Volvos, and constantly keeping his children in high school, Cullen Sr would appear to have a fairly low cost of living, so it is possible that a few wise investments back in the 1660s would’ve carried him through.
3 – SMAUG Worth: $53.1BN
When you’re sitting on, or under, a mountain’s worth of gold it’s easy to think that you’re rich without really knowing how much you have. After all he’s probably snorted out about a million or more in gold from each nostril just at the ending of the first film. The amount of gold stuck in his scales could probably feed a small city for years and years.Although his horde remains intact for the moment, this is likely to change later this year upon the release of the final film in the trilogy.
2 –SCROOGE MCDUCK Worth: $65.4BN
crooge is an elderly Scottish anthropomorphic Pekin duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet. At the age of 13 McDuck left Glasgow for the US, where he ended up in 1898. From here he built his fortune, quickly earning his first million. In the years that followed he continued to amass money, which he stored in enormous ‘Money Bins’. His relationship with Donald is mixed following an episode during which he forces Donald to polish his money for 5 cents an hour. Thankfully during his evolution as a character he’s gone from being a grumpy old uncle to someone that actually values adventure and family in equal measures.
1 –Black Panther(T’Challa) Worth: $90.7TN
The Wakandan king isn’t just the richest superhero either. He is also one of the wealthiest fictional characters of all time.With a net worth of approximately $90.7 trillion, even the likes of Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne can’t top the kind of riches T’Challa has. T’Challa is the king of Wakanda, a fictional African country with nearly all of the world’s reserves of Vibranium. The ultra-rare material is the most precious and strongest metal in the Marvel Universe. It’s stronger than indestructible metal Adamantium, the substance bonded to Wolverine’s skeleton and claws.
