All of which is very much unlikely, when you are making $15/hour.

As is speculating and buying comics, to flip, or sit on.

I make more than $15/hour, but not all that much more.

Nearly all of my savings is tied up in raw books....that have to be pressed, slabbed before I attempt to sell them, otherwise I will get a fraction of FMV.

I rent, don't own a home.

If I had a mortgage, I would have to be much more proactive with actually subbing raws and selling them.

While it may be more difficult to save for a rainy day on $15 per hour anyone is free to invest their money in productive investments (including comic books, stocks, or even a home). We reap what we sow.

Topics aren't always linear in any subject forum across the web. It's more interesting to have various views and sometimes a new interesting topic or two can evolve out of the original post. The problem comes when namecalling, anger, trolling, accusations etc start to creep into the conversation.

As far as the topic on hand, I'm of the view that being paid over a quarter of a million dollars is pretty good chump change to run around playing 'cops N robbers' for a few months. Plus now Gadot is well set up for even larger paydays in the near future.

Gal Gadot could have made zero dollars on the first Wonder Woman movie and still would have been compensated well.

The movie turned her into a star, Any contract she signs from here on out is for millions.

I’m still a bit upset I missed her at last year’s Rhode Island con, the opportunity to meet her will likely never present itself again 😢😭😭

You're right. She has invested and invented herself into something bigger than herself. She has pulled off being Wonder Woman. She will from now on be identified with the character and that will pay dividends for her as long as she wants to play the character and open countless other doors as well.
Her facial expressions alone are worth the price of admission. She has a "melt your heart smile" to an "angry grimace" that is just amazing and plays perfectly to the part.

Yeah, I have to admit, other than not having those beautiful blue eyes, this "Gal" is the perfect WW for the 21st century...

She must have gotten paid way less than that for her appearance in Batman Vs Superman. After taxes $300k isn't much.

I can see why she's charging $250 for autographs now, she needs the money, lol!

I'm not trying to start a women vs men thing. It's just sad how greedy movie studios are. New actors get screwed. I hope she hired a good agent to negotiate WW 2.




At ace con LI it says $175 for autograph.

@teacha777 They are sold out on the pre-sales so $250 may be the price in person.
