The comic book superheroes are ruling our hearts since ages, and in our childhood we even used to fantasize about them in our real life. Eventually, they are so cool and always ready to save our mighty world whenever needed. They always fight with the evil minded people (who are equally talented in their own way) to help us to live a trouble free and secured life.
However, with time our beloved superheroes have changed their way livings too, and a few of them have even turned into awesomely talented and splendidly successful entrepreneurs while doing their main task, which is rescuing the earth from every troubles. These best superheroes are smart, genius, philanthropist, innovative thinkers, independent and very (I mean it) rich.
Today I will write about top 5 best comic book superheroes who have managed to turn into great entrepreneurs by using their brain, intelligence, talent and fierce attitude.
1. Tony Stark (The Iron Man)
Company: Stark Industries
Tony Stark from the Iron Man series is one of my favorite super heroes indeed. He possesses great sense of humor, very cool attitude and a huge company named Stark Industries. He is such an American citizen, whose name is counted on the billionaires list. He completed his graduation from one of the top most universities of the world i.e. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and that too at the age of 15 only. He enjoys his playboy attitude, and loves himself the most.
Tony is indeed a gifted engineer and he loves to invent cool machinery in his own lab, which is fully automated. He basically inherited Stark Industries from his father, who actually was a great entrepreneur cum industrialist too. Tony has developed many military weapons through his own corporation, and some of those have been installed into his own suit to help him to eradicate crime from his city.
2. Bruce Wayne (The Batman)
Company: Wayne Enterprises
Now I’ll talk about the 2nd superhero of list, which is Bruce Wayne or popularly known as the Batman. Just like Stark, this man too owns a very large corporation named Wayne Enterprises. He is a very talented engineer himself while having god gifted entrepreneurship skills. He gets all the financial helps from his own company to fight the evil in order to rescue his beloved Gotham City from every danger.
As per the comic book story, WayneCorp was founded in the 17th century but Alan Wayne made it an official company in somewhere in the 19th century. This company is based in Gotham City, which is always the centre of action of all the stories related to the Batman. Bruce Wayne has been leading this company superbly since taking full control over it. It has even managed to secure a place in the list of world’s top ten multinational conglomerates.
All the success of the WayneCorp is vastly because of the prime leadership of Bruce, and currently his company is employing as much as 170,000 people in 170 countries while achieving excellence across a wide range of industry sectors and markets.
3. Charles Xavier (X-Men)
Institution: Xavier Institute for Higher Learning
Charles Xavier is one of the most loving characters of the X-Men series. He possesses the power of reading and controlling other people’s mind in this series, and it is eventually considered as the most powerful mutant power indeed. The owner of this type of extraordinary mutant power later started Xavier Institute for Higher Learning to help out other gifted mutants by teaching them how to control their power and use it for the well-beings of the mankind.
The main purpose of this especial institution is to offer all the needed supports for “civilian” mutant populations on a large scale, as the world was seeing a high rise of mutant population. Even it was outgrowing the reach of the core X-Men team. The fully furnished X-Corp offices are situated in all the major cities across the every continent, and it is lead by a former member of the X-Men or one of their primary satellite teams.
4. Dr. Reed Richards (Fantastic Four)
Dr. Reed is another talented scholar, who holds an electrical engineering degree and a PhD in Physics. He started his career as a military scientist, and always wanted to do something special. At the age of mere 22, he was driven by an idea of developing such a Starship that can champion interstellar travel.
However, he lost his all savings in this process, but later he somehow managed to acquire the government’s approval for the project, and received the needed funds to finish the unfinished business. But things didn’t go as per plan, and later even the government warned that they would remove their help.
After that Reed took a bold stem, he actually took the ship for test-drive along with three of his most trustable colleagues, and returned as the Fantastic Four with great cosmic powers or super heroes. The mighty four members of this great team are known as Mister Fantastic, Invisible Girl, the Human Torch and the Thing.
5. Kyle Rayner (Green Lantern)
Company: Green Lantern Corporation
Kyle Rayner was the only child of his mother, who raised him with great love and affection. In his early life Kyle was a struggling-but-gifted graphic artist, who used to do several freelance works. Eventually he was discovered as the last survivor of the Guardian of the Universe.
Later Ganthet offered him the last fully working Green Lantern power ring that would help him to conjure any form of energy or matter whatsoever through sheer force of will. This is a great power indeed, and with this he continued to fight with the evils to protect the earth.
So this is our list of top 5 best super heroes cum entrepreneurs, who not only save the world when needed but also prove their supreme skill of minting money.
