wolverine would just pay the tax for obvious reasons (perfect example of young invincible btw) but he'd also make sure he kept hidden most of his income another example of the same.

yes its legal to build a plastic prison but ONLY if you use union labor.

I found this a few weeks ago. I can't tell you the last time I felt this hip.

It's also worth pointing out that though this is a fun way to introduce (mostly) basic legal questions, and I'll never turn down a comics discussion, the reality of super human individuals would radically change our laws.
