    Who has more money, Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark?

    Like This Thread!

    A friend of mine brought this up after recently watching Iron Man. Although both sources of wealth come from different arenas, pound-for-pound, who has more money? Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark?

    i cant even accept this as a serious question, OBVIOUSLY stark is richer. Bruice uses batarangs and some simple gadgets like that to do superheroing but Stark has a freeking battle suit that can fly and has hightech lazer weaponry on it, seriously.

    Xanatos has his own battle suit, but considering how many times it got trashed, uses inferior production.
    If I've ever offended anyone because I've said something that was crass, offensive, or just plain stupid personally, I apologize profusely.
    If I've ever offended someone because of my opinion concerning cartoons- Is that really something to be enraged about?

    I love how you just completely ignore everything Bruce has just because he uses lesser tech for his actual supeheroing.

    Yup, it got trashed all one time.

    Seriously. Castle skyscraper. The armor. The robots. The AI robots. The genetic experiments, and who knows what else.

    That being said, Stark definitely has the more advanced armor. But the universe he's in is much more technologically advanced anyway. If Xanatos were in the Marvel Universe, I bet his armor and Iron Man's would be on almost equal grounding.

    Are you serious? I can't even accept this is a serious answer. Are you only looking at their arsenal? Did you forget that Bruce Wayne is a philanthropist and that Wayne Tech completely funded the Batcave's technology and the JLA watchtower?

    I'm talking about the bigger picture here. Who's got the bigger bank account overall including liquid assets, charitable donations, companies, subsidiaries and sure... batarangs and armor.

    Maybe they are both about the same rich. Both are similar characters in how they handle business. And how they spend money.

    Last year's Forbes Fictional 15 list of the richest 15 fictional characters listed Bruce Wayne's net worth at $7.0 billion and Tony Stark at $6.0 billion. They also claim that Waynetech had more in sales than Stark Industries by a few billion.

    The differences are small enough that Wayne having a bad year or Stark having a good one could make them switch places pretty easily, though. Like many "Who'd Win?" questions, this one probably boils down to, "Who do you want to win?"

    Scrooge McDuck could buy both of them and still have billions left over, though.

    I wouls say tony stark. He sells his own inventions that brings him revenue, plus all those years of selling hi-tech weapons to the US military got him filthy rich.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If life gives you lemons, throw them at some one!

    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

    Never Argue with an idiot, they bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    Tricky. The correct answer should be Tony Stark, major international industrialist, beating out Bruce Wayne, son of a moderately rich doctor.

    However, in the last decade or two, Bruce has been retconned into hyper-rich heir to a vast Wayne money machine. He now has enough wealth to do anything a story calls for. (Infinite Credit? or Credit On Infinite Earths?)

    No, Infinite Credit belongs, as Ed noted, to Scrooge McDuck, whose wealth goes easily beyond mere billions... ;-)

    Not sure which one I'd pick, though I lean a bit toward Bruce...

    Ultimate Tony Stark has like $368 billion, so he wins. :anime:

    I know.

    His suit must be fancy. So he must obviously have the most money...

    I pick Bruce Wayne, much more logical.

    I'm sure it would be Bruce Wayne in the end... if he didn't have so many damn orphans (and butlers!) siphoning off his wealth!

    Trust me - if there's one thing I've learned, it's that if you ever ask the question "who's got more money", the answer is ALWAYS "the guy without kids".
