Are you a follower of the famous Showtime show Billions? Let’s just give you a brief idea of the show.

Billions is about a billionaire hedge-fund manager, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod and his foil Charles “Chuck” Rhodes Jr. Axe bets on the failure of a certain company and that’s how he made a fortune. Even if the company seems to survive, he makes sure that it doesn’t. This is the reason why Rhoades, a worshipper of the law, wants to bring Axe to justice. The show is a continuous one on one battle between Axe and the SEC.

One of the writers at The Verge, Sean O’Kane pointed out some striking similarities between Axe and the real-life billionaire Elon Musk. Keeping the article short, we will just tell you the parallels between Axe and Tesla CEO.
