Looking forward to the #Spain vs #Netherlands tonight. Will be rooting for the Dutch because of Louis van Gaal+Robin van Persie (re: Man UTD) and other not-so-important reasons.

This is awesome!
All hail comics' most wealthy: Black Panther. Buddy Loans created the infographic below from a bunch of sources including Forbes, Wikipedia, and Comic Vine. I never thought that his comparatively low wealth would be a reason to feel bad for Magneto.
