Forbes Fictional 15
I discovered a great list on wikipedia that archives the world's Top 15 Wealthiest Fictional Characters. Scrooge McDuck tops the list, which is complete bs. Santa Claus manages a workshop with enough employees to supply gifts to all of the capitalist children of the world. What's the average cost of a toy? And how many people are on earth? Assuming 2 billion folks celebrate Christmas, and get an average gift of fifty dollars--that's 100 BILLION dollars of annual net output! Enough to make Dr. Evil raise an eyebrow.

It looks like in years past Santa was at the top. I think Forbes realized that Santa is real and therefore he is no longer applicable to their list.

I just saw Dark Knight. HOLY CRAP. Is your mind blown, or what?

I want them to do Catwoman now... or Batgirl... forget Robin!
