I was sorry to get this news today...
No movie royalties? What a travesty, to take a man's creation and set it soaring, and not give him the respect he deserves.
Sad news, but thanks to Clay for passing it along.
That was pretty standard in the comic book industry until very recently (like, late 90s and early 00s), when Marvel and DC have granted ownership of a creator's characters as a way of luring them from the smaller publishers.
In fact, I think Stan Lee himself (whe created all the great Marvel heroes) doesn't get a single cent from all the money they make off movies, t-shirts, videos games, toys and whatnot featuring the Hulk, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and all his other ideas.
