I make billions,
I never spend less than $1000,
I'm a man in black,
I'm a force of nature,
I'm the original,
Audiences of all ages have seen me.

Who / what am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry not Bill Gates or Microsoft. I added the wordplay tag to this. When you see the answer I think it will make sense (hopefully). I didn't want to make it too easy so some of the lines are a bit vague on their own but make sense on the whole. If this is too hard I have hints in mind that will help. This is my first riddle, and I thought people would get it right away. We'll see how long it takes. $\endgroup$

Hopefully someone can finish this:

G=giga = affix for times 10^9
G=grand = 1000 dollars
G-man = government (FBI) agent
G=constant for the force of gravity
OG=original gangsta (slang term meaning "the original" or "old-school")
G=general audience viewing = movie rating

    $\begingroup$ I think you've probably got it. I imagine "the original" is probably referring to (spoiler). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Overmind - I'm not aware of 'G' being used to mean God, but God is a missing item in all answers ;) $\endgroup$
