That's because Musk — colonizer of Mars, transformer of cars, shepherd of solar panels — is the closest thing we've got to a superhero.

Born in South Africa, he sold his first software — a game called Blastar — when he was only 11. He went on to found and sell a startup to Compaq for $300 million in 1999, and parlayed that into a major stake in PayPal, which eBay bought for $1.5 billion in 2002.

With that dough, he got into three world-changing companies: Tesla, SpaceX, and Solar City. And though Tesla and SpaceX nearly went bankrupt, each of the companies is now shifting their industries.

    • At this point that is only speculative. The Swiss bank manager only said he was going to turn that information over to Wikileaks.
      First you don't broadcast a future crime.
      Next it sounds to me like he is trying to extort money to keep his mouth shut from the people who have accounts there.
      Just pay attention, and don't be surprised if he is suddenly taken out.
