Superheroes and Their Money

by Kristina on November 22, 2012 · 1 comment

The new 007 movie is out in theatres, did anyone see it yet? I haven’t gone to see it yet because I went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 which is the finale in the Twilight Saga.  I am a big fan of James Bond movies and so is my boyfriend Nick.  I am sure that we will see the new James Bond movie very soon.

The release of the new James Bond movie got me thinking about superheroes and money.  I know that James Bond is not a superhero like Batman or Spiderman, but he is a very wealthy man who fights crime and takes out bad guys so let’s just make the connection.

I have definitely seen my share of superhero movies with my boyfriend Nick; admittedly I don’t know a lot of the stories prior to going to the movie theatre but I always enjoy the movies.  Have you ever wondered why some superheroes (such as Bruce Wayne) are very wealthy and some superheroes (such as Peter Parker) are not as lucky in the financial aspects of their lives?

Among all of the superhero movies that I watched I noticed a financial trend that all superheroes (both rich and poor) have in common.

3 Superhero Money Tips:

1. Do Good With Your Money.  When Bruce Wayne is not saving Gotham City as Batman he is a wealthy bachelor who hosts charity events and tries to save the planet through clean air initiatives. This is a great example of how rich people can use their money for good. Actually everyone can support a good cause, not matter how much money you have. If I was rich I would start a breakfast program for kids in elementary school.

2. Be Conservative.  Some people think taking risks are ok, but this is not true when it comes to your money. Actually I guess it depends on what type of investor you are.  If you financial goal is to make sure that your money is always there then you are probably a very conservative investor. However if you feel that taking big risks leads to getting a big reward then you are probably a little more flexible with your investments.  Superheroes hide their identity by day but they fight crime by night, so maybe they are balanced investors?

3. There is money in science.  Remember my post a couple of weeks ago about Sheldon Cooper? Well I will say it again, there is money in science. Many superheroes (such as Peter Parker as Spiderman and The Fantastic Four) got their super powers from a scientific accident.  However many villains were also created from scientific malfunctions, so what does that say? If I could have one superhero power I think that it would be “Flame On” from The Fantastic Four. I am afraid of heights but the ability to be warm all of the time would be a major advantage for me because I am always freezing cold.

If you could have one superhero power what would it be?
