179. Isaac Perl­mut­ter

Forbes - - PROMOTION -

With $250 in his pocket, Perl­mut­ter im­mi­grated from Is­rael to Amer­ica in 1967. From there, his life story reads like one of the fan­tas­ti­cal Marvel sto­ries he now pro­duces: He presided over Jewish fu­ner­als and sold toys on the side­walk be­fore even­tu­ally buy­ing comic­book com­pany Marvel. Un­der Perl­mut­ter, it started to pump out hit movies like Iron

Man and The Avengers. Perl­mut­ter sold a ma­jor­ity to Dis­ney in 2009 and is no longer in charge of the movie ma­chine that will soon re­lease Black Pan­ther and the third Avengers in­stall­ment. He is chair­man of Marvel En­ter­tain­ment, the TV and comic­book busi­ness.
