What do the figures say?
In 2013, a unique list called Forbes Fictional 15 came out. It ranked the richest fictional characters. Ironman was ranked 4th with $12.4 Billion. Batman came in at number 6 with $9.2 Billion. While Batman owns Batsuits, Batmobile and other gadgets, Ironman possesses variations of Iron Man suits, Lamborghinis, and Malibu mansions. What do Ironman and Batman have in common? They have in common the fact that they are both handsome billionaires with the most advanced gadgets and expensive superhero suits at their disposal. Also, what is common between them is that they choose to use their infinite resources for the greater good. The two superheroes also do not possess any power of their own. They turn themselves into armored saviors with the help of their wealth.
Who is likely to get richer?
Now that we have assessed the wealth already in possession of the superheroes, a new question arises. We need to figure out whose wealth is likely to multiply faster. The balance here tips in favor of Ironman again. This is because of many factors. Firstly, everyone knows Tony Stark is Ironman. This helps Stark Industries flourish. Secondly, Tony Stark is also an astute businessman, very much in touch with the workings of his empire. The same cannot be said about Batman. The only aspect where Batman shows interest in the business is to see how he can use it to help Gotham and the people in general. Therefore, more than growing his business, he is more involved in spending its resources on charitable causes.
