Methodology for Fortune’s 27 Most Fantastical Comic Book Businesses

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.
