I don't think they got residuals even when they were alive.
Oh I was saying since the Superman in that show doesn't even wear the costume if I remember, but then I realised they don't pay creators if they make a show or even a new comic. The creator of Wolverine got paid like 25K and that's it.

They got completely screwed. Only after there was a big public outcry over them being elderly and impoverished and Shuster being blind did the scumbags at DC cough up some money. They weren't legally obligated to, but it was disgusting how much they shafted the creators of their best property.

To be fair after their rights lawsuit in the 40's DC/National Publication did give them a settlement in 1948 which adjusted for Inflation would equal close to a Million Dollars in todays money.

I finally got around to read Irredeemable and it's telling to see how Mark Waid has sort of become like the Plutonian himself.

Once an extremely beloved, pristine hero that out of the blue and for very petty reasons turned into a violent sociopathic villain that kept blaming everyone but himself for his actions. And once you dig in his character and past you realize he's always had those violent, emotionally unstable tendencies in him and was just keeping them bottled in until they bursted out.

But hell, even by the last issues of that series the Plutonian gained a bit of remorse and self-acknowledgement of his actions and the monster he had become, Waid will keep thinking he's the good guy and victim to his dying day.
How do you interpret the ending? How much do you think it was an homage and how much was Waid smelling his own farts? I read both series and incorruptible was better :late::offtopic:

There was some modern renegotiation. Siegal and Schuster were some of the more powerful back in the day and due to a lucky court decision actually held the copyright to “Superboy”. That brought WB to the negotiating table. It’s also why Smallville never ever uses the S word.

And yeah the BART in Smallville and Young Justice was enough to give Waid some residuals. As he once described it, “it’s enough to go out for a nice dinner once or twice a year. “

:late:, but if memory serves, it was Neal Adams who spearheaded the campaign that convinced DC to restore Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster credits as creators of Superman as well as give them a pension around he time the Superman film was released. They fared better than Bill Finger all things considered.

Just a minor update in the GFMs:

Update 1/30: Big thanks to Douglas Ernst for alerting me to Waid having full control of his Facebook back:
Apparently Waid's had full control of his Facebook back since New Years. You can tell mostly because the TDS posting increased by 80%:

Oh dear, I hope no one send this to the Covington Lawyer. You know the one suing for slander/libel? This guy, don't send it to him. Wouldn't want him to have another lawsuit on his hands:

It's nice to learn that he has not learned a single lesson from the Diversity & Comics shit show. He's going to get himself embroiled in yet another scandal because he can't control himself.
I'm just waiting for him to have another spat with diversity and comics over face book or twitter. Waid is likely stupid enough to try something again while the lawsuit is still going on or ended

Oh it's going to happen eventually. Maybe he's smart enough to keep quiet during the actual lawsuit, but once it's over and done with he's going to once again go after him. Regardless whether he wins or loses the lawsuit.

I envision lots of passive-aggressive stuff directed Zackward but never quite directly mentioning him, until he just can't take it anymore and throws a fit for some trumped up reason (or Trump-ed up reason, ha-ha).

Waid's been like this since he first popped his retarded head above water.

Despite his alleged popularity, none of his works have been especially successful (he's quite literally the headliner of the "sells well for 1-3 issues and then fucking bleeds out" paradigm that modern Marvel's become infamous for, and he's always had a massive fucking hate-boner for the customers as a result. Waid's a big proponent of digital comics, pitching them as "the future," when people were quite happy to buy an existing media format before Waid and his friends fucked it all up.

And that segues really well into Waid's problem as a whole: He has no cognitive capacity for restraint, moderation or subtlety. I've yet to figure the exact reason for it, but Waid is absolutely convinced that his divisive bullshit is the only path towards persuading people to come to his side of an argument, and if you won't step in line, he considers you collateral damage.

It's not a matter of if he's hubristic enough to do this shit again - it's when, and how hard he'll fuck himself when he does.

You're spot on, a malignant narcissist can't control himself even if he tried.

How I long for the days of unsolicited lobotomies. This guy is a prime candidate.
