While Tony Stark/Iron Man and Bruce Wayne/Batman are pretty legendarily rich, they’re not necessarily the wealthiest people in all of comics. Instead, that honor may just go to T’Challa/Black Panther, the King of Wakanda. In this video, we’re going to explain just why Black Panther likely has more money than both Iron Man and Batman — combined.
A big part of this video is going to be breaking down just how much the three heroes are worth and why. We’re going to start with Batman, who is estimated to be worth an incredible $9.2 billion as a result of his inheritance and foundations. Wayne Enterprises makes approximately $31.3 billion in revenue, meaning it’s quite profitable. He’s outdone by Tony Stark at $12.4 billion, though. However, his company only brings in $20.3 billion per year. Overall, the two men are worth pretty similar amounts. In Wakanda, just on the value of vibranium alone, T’Challa is worth $90.7 trillion, which is an incredible amount more than those. And we’re not even done yet.
Check out the video below for more reasons why Black Panther is richer than both Iron Man and Batman.
As for their comic book movie counterparts, T’Challa will return in the future for his second solo film, following up on the blockbuster success Black Panther. Batman is set to get his first solo movie with Robert Pattinson in the starring role, which could relaunch the property after Justice League. As for Iron Man, there’s no indication when he’ll next appear on the big-screen, as the hero died during the events of Avengers: Endgame. Thus, it seems T’Challa also has a leg up on his competitors in the realm of cinema, too.
