    I know Iron Man is. And Angel.....And Xavier is independantly wealthy. Someone recently mentioned Namor as being really really rich. I read once that Beast is moderately wealthy.

    Doom should probbly be rich (Can anyone confirm that?)



    So can we list up and list of who in the Marvel U is rich?

    A Quick list of Marvel's "rich":

    Tony Stark
    Archangel
    Xavier
    Emma Frost
    Moon Knight
    The Thing
    Historically, Mr. Fantastic was often well off
    Night-Thrasher
    Dr. Doom
    Sebastian Shaw (and the Hellfire Club basically)
    Namor
    Black Bolt (presumably)
    Wasp (ironically)

    Others will fill in for me, I was just being quick.

    Beast isn't wealthy, his parents are farmers. I can imagine he might make a comfortable living for himself from various patents, but I would highly doubt that he's a millionaire


    There's also Roberto Dacosta, Sunspot

    Wonder Man's a high profile actor, kind of an Arnold Schwazanegger, so he probably gets several million bucks for every movie he's in.

    Dr. Strange was wealthy as a surgeon, but he used it all up in his origin. I doubt he has any need for income or welth now with his powers, though

    Namor
    Black Panther
    Doom
    Black Bolt
    (mostly in order since they all have their own countries/kingdoms with all the resources therein. And the kingdom of atlantis covers 75 percent of the earth. Between all the mineral deposits and sunken treasure he's gotta be the richest person on the planet)

    Iron Man
    Iron Fist
    Norman Osborn
    Wilson Fisk
    Archangel
    Sebastian Shaw
    Xavier
    Emma Frost
    Wonderman

    There's probably others but this is all i can think of at the moment.

    Does Wonder Man still have his riches? I thought they would've gone to someone after his death.

    His legal status is living. Therefor he'd still have all his belongings. He might have had to go through some legal rigamarole to get his stuff back but it's still his.

    Hell I'd imagine a bunch of the villains have a sizeable fortune hidden away from all the heists they pulled.

    I could have sworn Wonderman lost all his money a while ago.

    Speaking of Wonder Man's "deaths", can you imagine how difficult it would be for him to get his possessions back after his first "death"? They must have some special superhero/villain clause in wills these days. "In the event the decased returns to life due to some totally confusing and highly improbable reason you must return all items willed to you within a reasonable time, and should the owner "die" again, the item/s shall be held in escrow for two years or until he/she returns, whichever comes first." Must be the same for soap operas too :p

    That would be awesome
    Matt Murdock - You're honor, my client "died" and was promptly ressurected by a supervillain after being "enhanced" by said supervillain, and is not here in court today due to the fact that he has to fight his brother who is trying to kill an android who has the same brain patterns as the defendant ect...
    Judge - *holding head in hands* I hate contested superhero wills.

    That actually sounds like something the good folks at Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holloway might use.

    I always thought his dad was a scientist who thought his work with radiation caused the mutation????????

    Cap is well to do too as he should be getting back pay from the military.

    hmm, yeah, the wikipedia article mentions his Dad worked at a Nuclear Power Plant, but it doesn't say if he was a scientist, and he may have only worked their long enough to be exposed to enough radiation to make little hank a mutant. I was pretty sure they were farmers because they were on one the last time I remember seeing his parents, which was X-Men Unlimited #10 (the Dark Beast issue where he takes over his identity)

    I never really thought of Cap as getting paid by the military. I just figured they hooked him up with whatever housing he liked, gave him a credit card with the National Treasury as its limit, and let him do as he pleases. If there's anyone you can trust to be responsible, it's Captain America, after all.

    ya, the only expenses I know of Cap having is he that likes old records. He has, or at least had, a personal motorcycle, but much of his travel was on official business in Shield or Avengers vehicles
