The 'Thriller' hitmaker - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - longed to own movie studio Universal Pictures, so he could play superheroes in blockbusters, and saw himself like Tony Stark, the fictional billionaire engineer behind superhero Iron Man.

Michael's former manager Dieter Wiesner is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: ''Michael was a visionary in the sense of how he knew that the Marvel universe's superheroes were hit movies waiting to be made.

However, Michael's dreams were shattered when he was accused of child sex abuse by former friend Jordan Chandler in 1993.
