Comparing Finances: Batman and Spider-Man

Not all that glitters is gold

File under: somebody did this. H&R Block went straight for our nerd buttons by creating this infographic comparing the tax liability, income, and lifestyles of Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker. Probably the most interesting part for us? Despite his vast wealth, it would take Bruce Wayne almost twenty years to earn as much money as the Batman movie franchise has.

But it would take Peter Parker nearly fifty millennia to do the same for Spider-Man.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
