Updated July 6, 2022: If you love superheroes, you’ll be happy to know we’ve updated this list with additional content and entries about the richest of them all.

This is an obvious one. Bruce Wayne is the CEO of Wayne Corporations, the biggest industry on the planet which he inherited from his father. This playboy billionaire can be seen at charity events while he hits the streets as Batman to help put a stop to the criminals running rampant in Gotham. Bruce flaunts his wealth, living in his massive mansion Wayne Manor and having a gallery of expensive cars and motorcycles. On top of this, his exploits as an industrialist fund his vigilantism. From crazy gadgets like the Batarang (boomerang) to his ever-coveted Batmobile which features a remote start, Batman has no shortage of gear. Every movie, from Tim Burton’s Batman to Matt Reeves’ The Batman, all portray Bruce Wayne’s expensive cache of equipment, gadgets, and gear.

X-Men: The Last Stand might have been one of the lesser films from the franchise, but Ben Foster’s powerful turn as Warren Worthington III — AKA “Angel” — is reason enough alone to see this superhero flick. And of course, Ben Hardy portrayed a younger version of the fan-favorite in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. A founding member of the X-Men in the original comics, Worthington originally possesses a pair of large feathered wings extending from his back, enabling him to fly. He is the heir of the Worthington family fortune, and this privileged background results in Warren being stereotyped as self-absorbed and unable to deal with hardships during his early years with the X-Men. It’s fun, then, to see his character evolve as the comics progressed, especially in the 1980s when he took on a more intense, humanistic persona despite his outrageous wealth.

Not only is Professor X one of the most powerful members of the X-Men and their designated leader, but he is also an extremely wealthy man. Like Bruce Wayne, Professor X’s wealth was mostly inherited from his step-father. Professor X is responsible for funding the exploits of the X-Men as well as funding his school Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. This includes everything from housing young mutants who are students of the school to paying for the expensive gadgets and machinery used by the X-Men to aid them in their missions. While he is the main financial backer of the X-Men, he is not the sole contributor with some funds coming from Magneto and Emma Frost. Interestingly, none of the X-Men movies dive deeply into just how wealthy Professor X really is.
