    Good find, @thesurrealari .

    Shooter was aware that he would sign away characters that he created for Marvel. He also earned a nice living from the company, so he may have considered it a fair deal for years of employment.

    You can’t judge deals exclusively from hindsight. He wrote new characters that went on to make money, but also write characters that failed to make money or find an audience. It’s not to say that one outweighs the other, just that there are other factors to consider in the discussion.
