About[edit | edit source]

Charles Montgomery Plantagenet Schicklgruber Burns, also known as C.M. BurnsMr. Burns, Monty, to his parents, Happy or simply Burns, is the owner and manager of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. The series' primary antagonist, Burns is Springfield's richest and most powerful citizen. His net worth has been stated to be in the billion-dollar range, although he once lost his entire fortune, and once slipped to "only" $996 million ($996,000,000), leading to his expulsion from Billionaire Camp. Burns is very elderly and physically frail; regardless, he employs his evil, cruel, bitter, cynical, heartless and greedy tactics to get what he wants.
