Wealth: Heisenberg < Michael

Power: Heisenberg < Michael

Leader: Heisenberg < Michael

Interesting: Heisenberg > Michael

Overall, Michael is much more powerful and wealthy as he as the whole of the Corleone Family by his side and has generations of inheritance. That doesn't stop Heisenberg from being a better character though. I prefer Heisenberg to Michael... I guess if someone worked it out then they could have a real view but I'm sure that Michael is the apex predator of the situation.

I'm not sure that Michael is wealthier than Walter White. By the end of season 5 of BB, Walt has a storage locker with more money than he can count. Michael has a number of expensive assets, but I believe he has more partners and a more expensive operation to maintain, i.e., more liabilities. Walter, on the other hand, couldn't spend his money even if he wanted to... it will take him ages to launder his piles of money. By the end it seems he has nothing, but it seems like, for a moment, Walter was arguably more wealthy than Michael.

That said, I agree that Walter is more interesting. Michael really shines as a sick mofo by the end of the Godfather Pt. 2, but we just have so many more golden moments with Mr. Heisenberg.

Wealth: Can't say... I'll go with Walter. By season 5, he had stacks on deck (that's Black man language for having a ton of money)

Power: Michael Corleone.

Leader: Michael Corleone.

Interesting: Definitely Walter White. I didn't really like Michael anyway to be honest... But Walter is such an complex character. You can talk about this guy for days.

The only real reason I think Walter is not as powerful as Michael is because Walter is a bit more discrete with his life. Thats not to say Michael is discrete as well. But being "powerful" is more thinking mentally, but it requires putting more of yourself out there.

I usually see that to obtain power and control, you need to put extra effort on that and often let your alter ego image stand out more, which is usually sometimes risking getting caught. Walter was never really that powerful until season 4 and 5. He has put more effort into being Heisenberg than Walter White. It was not until he met Gus, that he began to make a name for himself.

Although I believe Michael is more powerful (In terms of influence) and wealthier, I'm going to make my choice on who I think would take down the other if they were enemies..

& I'd say Walter White.
Because he's very creative & sneaky and he killed Gus!
That's pretty much the same thing as killing Michael.
