The 15 Richest Fictional Characters

From Forbes.Com: Collectively, we are fascinated by the super-rich. We devour their biographies. We hang on their advice. Maybe we even hope for their downfall. But in our attempts to explain the ultra-rich--and their super-inflated bank accounts--we are often guilty of reducing real people to mere caricatures. There is the monopolist. The oracle. The genius. The thief.

With the Forbes Fictional 15, we have taken the opposite approach--fiction’s caricatures are elevated to the status of real people.

Mark Evanier, who has worked for both, states that Scrooge McDuck could buy and sell Richie Rich. Personally I'd expect that the recent upsets in the oil industry would have improved the status of J.D. Clampett but on the whole he'd be lower on the list than the more diversified Bruce Wayne.
