Deacon | Governor Breck | Durza | The show's creator, Matt Groening, principally based Burns on Fredrik Olsen, a reclusive Norwegian shipping magnate and the owner of Timex. Familiarity with the use of these weapons dates him considerably far back in history, especially the morning star since this has not been a widely used weapon since the late medieval era. Molly Merchants | Charles Montgomery "Monty" Burns, usually referred to simply as Mr. Burns, full name Charles Montgomery Plantaganet Schickelgruber Burns, is a recurring character in the animated television series The Simpsons, voiced initially by Christopher Collins, and currently by Harry Shearer. At one point, in an uncharacteristic act of charity, he also managed to pay for a then-dangerously overweight Homer Simpson's liposuction to make him comparatively thin again to repay the latter for reducing a potentially catastrophic Chernobyl-style nuclear meltdown at the plant to "a mere Three-Mile Island" (although it should be noted that he did this task after Homer failed to do one sit-up). In The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album, the Simpson family tree shows Mr. Burns on the same row as Abe, meaning that he is probably a similar age to him. Medusa | Kang and Kodos | Lyle Lanley | The Cook | Kent Brockman also credits Burns with having stolen Christmas from 1981 to 1985. [87] He is weak enough to be pushed over by an ant[88] or a high-five, or pushed down by a sponge scrub on his head (although he was able to eventually get up in the latter case). The Leader, Charles Montgomery Plantagenet Schicklgruber Burns. Juno Skinner | before pulling the lever. Burns is also unconcerned and dispassionate for his employees' safety and well-being, even laughing at the sight of a window washer falling from a great height of a building. Lindsey Naegle | Luke Castellan | His residence also contains a closet full of clothes made from many different types of animals, such as a vest made from a gorilla's chest and loafers made from gophers. Lord Dargis | Mendez I | Boss | [153] In 70,000,000, he dies and goes to Dog Heaven, which was caused by offering to give the church back to Reverend Lovejoy in exchange for admittance into Heaven. Dolph Starbeam | The Greedy | His excessive wealth makes him the villain in many stories. [106] Burns' knees were also sent out to be repaired at a "shop". Shadow Knight | [102] Apparently, the only reason that he could survive was due to hate, and he could not give out his kindness without getting killed as a result. [48] In addition, when Homer was revealed to have had mental trauma caused by his accidental discovery of Waylon Smithers, Sr.'s half-decayed corpse in a local watering hole that he was swimming at that got re-exposed during a hypnotist session, Mr. Burns also supplied a videotape explaining how Waylon Smithers, Sr. died to help Homer recover from the trauma (although he also largely did it because they assumed that Mr. Burns had him murdered due to the place where Smithers' body was discovered being connected directly to Mr. Burns' office, with the alternative being facing jail time, and thus wanted to clear his own name as well.). Blue Sky Villains | Young Burns in the 1890s with his teddy bear, Bobo. In addition, Homer investigates Mr. Burns due to suspecting the latter to be potentially being responsible for mysterious black vans popping up over town and spying on people (Homer in particular), with Mr. Burns citing innocence (although he does admit to having arranged to have Amelia Airhart's plane shot down due to being "too big for her jumpers"), and then proceeding to release the hounds on Homer and also requesting that Smithers fire Homer if he did work at the plant. Burns is also, for the most part, unaware of the townspeople's general hatred of him. [125] Burns has used his power and wealth to blackmail and bribe various members of Springfield, including Mayor Quimby, as well as safety inspectors. [71] Despite serving in World War II, he was unaware (or had forgotten) that Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, prompting World War I. Ash | Lard Lad | Increase his power.Become immortal and rule Springfield (succeeded; to an extent; ongoing).Ruin Abe Simpson and his family's lives.Various others. Dirt | In "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts", Bart sees a photo of Burns being punched by Theodore Roosevelt while Bart is researching him. Harvester Queen | In his cabinet, he has a secret safe that is hidden underneath a painting that looks almost alike. The Grand Pumpkin | Lindsey Naegle | After being defeated, Mr. Burns is knocked out unconscious and Maggie then places her pacifier into Mr. Burns' mouth. Mr. Burns was able to regain his wealth and power plant that the bank had repossessed, by hiring Lisa Simpson to be his advisor. Aside from his main residence, he also has a summer retreat, which ended up being squatted in by the Simpson family as part of a movie. Cooder | Jack Crowley | Bob Arnold | Dmitri Desgoffe-und-Taxis | However, his weight gain still did not alleviate all of his health problems, as Mr. Burns when attempting to "toe-hop" as a gesture had his shin bones snap off, forcing him to waddle off, with his ruefully implying that this was not the first time such a thing happened (and presumably proceeded to incense him enough that he became part of the angry mob that tried to beat Homer up as retribution later on).[103]. [108] On rare occasions, he has displayed great strength and skill, such as when he managed to single-handily capture the Loch Ness Monster (though it was never explained how he did so or seen on-screen)[109] and when he rescued his girlfriend, Gloria Jailbird, from a burning building (although she wound up carrying him out of the blaze). Miles Quaritch | Charles Montgomery Burns is the main antagonist of the Simpsons franchise. At a young age, he left his family to live with a twisted and heartless billionaire, who was actually his grandfather and a former slaveholder named Colonel Wainwright Montgomery Burns, who owned an "atom mill" in Springfield, where laborers split atoms by hitting anvils with sledgehammers. If a guest put him in a particularly good mood, he will return the favor by significantly reducing the number of hounds released to one. Burns is a tall, slightly hunchbacked man with a prominent overbite and a long beak-like nose. Mac | Grid | Attar | Rolf Gruber | Neomorphs | In addition, Mr. Burns, when planning his Sun Blocker plan shortly after firing Smithers, and while literally stomping down on potential rivals at his model of Springfield, proceeded to stamp down on one of the cooling towers of the plant and yell "Take that, Springfield Nuclear Power Pl..." before realizing that the plant was actually already under his control and then sheepishly muttered, "Oh, fiddlesticks!"[39]. Soldier Sam | [47] He also organized a team-building exercise upon witnessing first hand his employees failing to clear the power plant during a fire drill within fifteen minutes (especially when the optimal clearance time was forty-five seconds), and was genuinely disgusted with his employees' actions beforehand (in particular, Homer blocking the fire escape with a bench).
