Who is the Richest Fictional Character? The Forbes Fictional 15!

WHO KNEW??

Everyone has heard of Forbes magazine, and knows that they feature the wealthiest in the world.  But who knew they annually take a break from the serious (and let's admit, boring) to feature the richest FICTIONAL characters!  How fun is that?  So.....guess who was a the top of last year's list.  I'll give you a hint, his first name starts with a C and his last name rhymes with Sullen.  With a net worth of approximately $34.1 billion, Dr. Carlisle Cullen was top dog in the fictional world.  But who will win out this year?

This is where we come in, my fiction-obsessed friends.  Forbes is asking you who you think is the richest fictional character.  If you leave a comment on this Forbes post you could have a say in who gets top dog status this year!  The best entries will be featured in Forbes magazine.

So, put on your thinking caps, and go leave a comment!  And I'd love to hear who you have in mind, too, so leave a comment here and let me know who you think is the richest fictional character!  Hmmm.....how much do you think Lucius Malfoy is worth???  (Yes, of course I went with a Harry Potter character!)

  6. I thought the Tooth Fairy was a non-profit...
    I want to see Dhiren from Tiger's Curse on this year's list. Can't say why, as it might spoil the story, but he's definitely not wanting for cash.

  13. I don't think Lucius Malfoy is worth much anymore. His reputation was tarnished and I'm sure Lord Voldermort used his money up while he was staying in their mansion. LOL
