In 1938, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the young cartoonists who created Superman and launched the superhero comics craze, sold the character and all rights to the publisher for $130. In turn, the character would make billions for DC Comics and Warner Bros. through comics, movies, licencing, and other means. Siegel and Shuster filed multiple lawsuits against the company for proper royalties in the decades following the character's debut, with little success. Though the duo would later receive medical insurance and yearly stipends from the company, they never saw the type of money they had hoped for.
