I learned the other night from the Colbert Report that Forbes’ list of the 15 richest fictional characters was recently released. I vaguely remember hearing about this list in the past, but I’ve never paid attention.
This year I decided to check it out, and it is very interesting. Coming in at #1 is none other than Carlisle Cullen. Heeheehee! I guess it does make perfect sense, since he has Alice to help him out. The thing that made me laugh really hard was reading about how the list was put together. Apparently people from Forbes study the character’s source material to discover the extent of their wealth. I get a big kick out of imagining people from Forbes pouring over the Twilight series. *Giggle*
I think the list itself is pretty great. Anything that includes Scrooge McDuck, Richie Rich, several superheroes, two classic tv characters, Mr. Burns, and Lucille Bluth is okay in my book.
