...And here's the 2011 List


You’re not imagining it: The rich do keep getting richer. Even the fictionally rich.

The members of our 2011 list of wealthiest fictional characters have an average net worth of $9.7 billion, up 20% from last year. In aggregate, the Fictional 15 are worth $131.6 billion --more than the gross domestic product of New Zealand. To qualify for the Fictional 15, characters must be known, both within their fictional universe and by their audience, for being rich. Net worth estimates are based on an analysis of the fictional character's source material, and where possible, valued against known real-world commodity and share price movements. 

I Wanna Be Fake Rich

Ran across this article about Forbes 15 Richest Fictional Characters. It's a bit outdated (2006 list), but I'm guessing a lot of these still hold true. I would imagine Bruce Wayne and Anthony Stark would've climbed the list a bit, you know, since they've released a few big movies over the past couple years...

I also love that the article mentions how Santa Claus was snubbed. I guess it really doesn't take that much money to bring happiness and joy to children all over the world?
