For proof of income inequality in America, look no further than the take-home pay of Batman and Spider-Man.
Bruce Wayne is a 1 percenter, with an estimated annual income of $102 million. And that excludes the potential extra riches to be had from stock options.
Spider-Man, by contrast, can’t afford a Batmobile. He’s clinging to a modest $50,000-a-year salary – barely enough to cover his tuition at New York University.
The figures come courtesy of a blogger at H&R Block and appear to have as much – or as little – basis in reality as the comic strips themselves.
