Forbes has published its list of the 400 richest Americans and Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter clocks in at #250 with $1.65 billion, much of it from the $4 billion sale of Marvel to Disney last year.
The piece also contains a real oddity: a photograph of Perlmutter, who is more camera shy than the Loch Ness monster, apparently. The only photo Forbes could find is from a 1985 shoot when he was 42 or so. (He’s now 67 for the math-chellenged.) So this image may be out of date but if you squint a little…
The incredibly cost-conscious takes an active hand in running Marvel, we’re told.
