The Most Successful Non-Existent Companies
While watching movies, reading books or comics, people come across many different fictional characters, places, even companies. Here, we are going to reveal the secrets of some of the biggest fake companies ever created. These fake companies were made by some creative minds of writers and screenwriters. Even though being fake, many people around the world know about them and even admire their power. No. Three will make you wonder!
Genco Pura Olive Oil Company
Ollivander’s Wand Shop
This company first appeared in Roald Dahl’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, published in 1964. Afterward, when the movie was made out of this book, we could even see how Mr. Willy Wonka looked like, played by Gene Wilder (1971) and Johnny Depp (2005). Wonka candies really exist and are sold even today. These days, the company is hiring chocolate tasters. A dream job, right? Also, the play ”Willy Wonka” opens in Quincy.
Do you know who Tony Stark is, and do you know who Iron Man is? Yes, of course. Stark Industries are part of the Marvel comic universe. This company is selling weapons and doing some world-saving projects such as fighting for clean energy. This Stark gentleman is connected in the real world with a man called Elon Musk, who is working on electric cars, solar energy initiatives, and space exploration. Even Robert Downey, Jr., who played Iron Man in the movie, said he thought about Musk while creating this character.
No Batman movie could be imagined without this company. Its owner is Batman himself, Bruce Wayne. Wayne Enterprises doesn’t really exist, but it looks very powerful in every Batman movie. What if such company really existed and could produce all the equipment Batman has. That would be awesome!
We have seen this company in the Looney Tunes cartoon Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. Acme really exists as a company and its owner Marvin Acme used to own Toontown where Looney Toones lived. The company’s name is actually an anagram for A Company that Makes Everything, and it is almost always the first company mentioned in the telephone directory. (This is also the reason why Amazon has its name – to be the first, or among the first companies listed in any kind of directory).
