The World's Richest Fictional Characters

You know how Forbes puts out that annual list of the wealthiest people in the world? Well, the folks at Forbes have a list of the world's wealthiest fictional characters too...

Scrooge McDuck tops the list at $ 44.1 billion (still less than Bill Gates at $53 billion). In second place: Carlisle Cullen, the 370-year-old vampire from the 'Twilight' books. His net worth? $36.2 billion.

A few other notables: the classic comic book character Richie Rich is worth $9.7 billion. Everyone's favourite top-hatted, mustachioed character Mr. Monopoly came ninth with $2.6 billion. And the legendary C. Montgomery Burns from 'The Simpsons' had a tough year. His fortune dipped to $1.1 billion.
