Jamie Coville On The Ten Least Powerful People In Comics
posted November 23, 2012

I think you forgot the least powerful people in comics. I'll label it #0 because it fits.

#0. Gold/Silver/Bronze Age Creators. Did you create Superman? Spider-Man? Captain America? Thor? Hulk? Iron Man? Fantastic Four? X-men? New X-men? Ghost Rider? Your former client thanks you for lining their bank account with billions of dollars by deciding you as a human being are worth nothing. The company lawyers however are worth millions if you dare ask for a crumb from the monster sized pie you baked.
