Methodology

We used a state-of-the-art 1999 eMachines PC running Windows Me to assign totally arbitrary rankings to fictional businesses from comic books based on the following criteria: probable market value, sentimental value, popularity and the hunches of several Fortune staffers. The result is the highly unscientific Fortune Comic Grade Index (FCGI), the industry standard in ranking fake companies. The only qualifiers are all businesses must appear in a comic book (even if they originated in film) and exist in present day in some form.

Salutations, mortals! Whether it's a multinational conglomerate or a multinational pharmaceutical corporation, big business has always been both friend and foe to popular comic book characters. For the first time ever, Fortune ranks the 27 most fantastical comic book businesses using the Fortune Comic Grade Index. Read on to see who made it—and who didn't.

What should have been a banner year for InGen’s surprisingly popular Jurassic World turned into yet another high-profile PR nightmare for the company. We’re still excited for the company’s expansion plans and holiday sales forecast.
