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.

Legal firms don’t usually rank so high on our lists, but this interdimensional law firm run by demons set in the Buffyverse seems like a surefire winner in a down market. Talking to accounts payable is hell, though.

strengths
  • Employees have a "perpetuity clause" in contracts, so retention rates are industry leading.
weaknesses
  • An employee dispute within the firm once sent the entire city of Los Angeles to hell.
opportunities
  • With so many scandals in play, from Volkswagen to DraftKings, it's never been a better time to find legal demon representation.
threats
  • David Boreanaz and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
