In a real sense, the DC Comics have gone through an evolution to become an intricate universe. Part of what makes a character unique is the amount of money he/she has. So, does Batman pops up in your mind when you think of wealthy DC Comic character? Ever wonder how is it possible that he still remains stinking rich when he’s always fighting crime? Well, the truth is, he never does any income generating activity, but he has plenty of wealth, so much that he does not need to work for the rest of his entire life.
You need to know about this DC character and the way he has gotten his wealth since having lots of money makes you a key player where you can get anything done with cash. So let’s get started.
Bruce Wayne, the Batman, was born in old money made from real estate and industry. He got all his wealth from his parents, Thomas, and Martha after they were killed by a thug when he was a kid. If his parents had not been murdered, we all know that Bruce would have been incredibly spoiled by now.
The Wayne’s fortune flourished immensely under Batman’s stewardship. While concealing his identity as an industrialist, Batman is simply the owner of most of the companies in the DC universe. The fortune of Wayne’s family diversifies in oil, electronics, real estate, media, scientific research and food production. Batman’s payoffs from these industries are that he uses prototypes from any of the industries of his interest to fight crime. And when the industries’ managements inquire about the prototypes, he claims that the losses are due to industrial sabotage or theft.
The investments of Bruce Wayne are more related to protecting the income of his allies and ensuring that they don’t crumble into corruption that comes through most of the corporations. By simply controlling his fortune, Bruce Wayne is definitely among the richest men in the world.
You’ll agree that money runs the world, and the DC universe isn’t an exception. All organizations need some form of financial backing. This is how Batman has succeeded to make Daily Planet a bastion of integrity and truth. Other characters, such as Lex Luthor, gives a lot of money for philanthropic purposes just like Bruce Wayne. However, the difference is Wayne does for noble reasons or for the well-being of a person.
So, out of your own curiosity about this character’s source of wealth, you get to learn a moral of the story- control the wealth you possess. If batman was reckless and loosed hope after his parent’s death, he wouldn’t have been able to retain what was left for him.
It’s quite fortunate that even though money is valued as a key factor in the DC Universe, integrity is also a highly valued virtue on the list. In your bid to acquiring or protecting the wealth you’ve gained, maintaining high morals, such as integrity can a make a big difference.
