Motley Fool Writer Focuses on Marvel Remuneration

The good folks at Motley Fool seem to write about Marvel Enterprises kind of a lot, although I'm not complaining. This latest article provides a really good overview of concerns regarding the corporate rewards system the current owners have locked into place. Those of you with slightly longer memories might recall is how much the late '90s bankruptcy ownership battle centered around which competing group could do right by stockholders, something these sorts of arrangement call into question.

From a personal standpoint, I always thought it was interesting in a kind of slit-the-wrists way how extravagantly some people can be rewarded as toy design "creators" given how poorly the actual comic book character creators have been rewarded and treated over the years. But since no one really talks about that, maybe it's just me.
