Steve Ditko Net Worth $5 million
Steve Ditko grew up in Johnstown; his mother was a homemaker, and his father a master carpenter. Steve got his love for comics from his father, who was a big fan and read the newspaper comics in their house daily. Steve started drawing as a young kid and continued into his teenage years. When the Batman comics came out in 1940, he was hooked and he decided that he would draw comics for a living. When he matriculated from High School in 1945, he enlisted in the US Army and did his military service in Germany. There, he joined the Army newspaper and drew comics in order to boost the soldiers’ morale, so kicking off his net worth.
When he returned to the US, Steve moved to New York to chase after his hero, Batman creator and artist Jerry Robinson, who was teaching at the School of Visual Arts. Jerry saw huge potential in Steve and he was able to acquire a scholarship to the drawing school, after which his professional career began professionally in 1953.
Steve became an inker of Jack Kirby, the creator of Captain America, The Fantastic Four, and many others. He then moved on to other minor publications, and eventually began drawing for Atlas Comics, which later on became Marvel Comics. During this period he began collaborating with writer-editor Stan Lee, and their initial work, “The Amazing Adventures” became popular, and it was the start of a partnership that would last for many years. Steve Ditko’s biggest break was when he co-created Spiderman with Stan Lee, and this contributed significantly to his net worth. However, Steve left Marvel in the 1960s due to disputes and disagreements with the creative direction of his characters, but as a talented artist he was able to transition to other companies like Charlton, Eclipse, DC, and Dark Horse. He later returned to Marvel but only for freelance work for Marvel’s lesser known creations such as Machine Man, The Micronauts, and Captain Universe.
Although he is best known for creating the Spiderman character, Steve’s net worth can also be credited to many other sources. He was also one of the brains behind “The Incredible Hulk” and “The Iron Man”, which along with Spiderman and Doctor Strange earned earned considerable international box office success in the 2000s. Currently, Steve is still hard at work giving creative direction to his comics, but he is no longer drawing as an artist, he retired from mainstream comics in 1998.
Not much is known about Steve Ditko’s personal life. He is well-known for being a recluse and a shut-in, and is believed to never have married, or had children.

Looks like we don't have Steve Ditko salary information. Sorry!
|1||In the late 1990s, Marvel Comics began looking at developing existing works of literature as graphic novels. Ditko was asked to illustrate a graphic novel of Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged. Ditko declined, stating that he did not want his interpretation of the appearance of the characters to overshadow the readers' imaginations.|
|2||Although Ditko had returned to work for Marvel Comics several times after his mid-60s departure, he has steadfastly refused to again draw his two most famous characters, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange.|
|3||He is the creator of such comic book characters as Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, the Question, Shade and The Changing Man. In addition, he has worked as an artist on many other comics.|
|4||Is notoriously reclusive and very rarely, if ever, appears in public. He never gives interviews and the closest most people have ever been to seeing his face is in an early issue of Spider-Man in which a self-portrait of him sleeping at his desk appears.|
|5||He is well known for designing superheroes that wear masks that show absolutely no facial features. Such examples are Spider-Man and the DC Comics character the Question.|
|6||Had a long running feud with Stan Lee because he believed Stan was claiming to be the sole creator of Spider-Man. The have since patched things up.|
|7||In the 1970s, he wrote and illustrated several independently published comic books that were heavily inspired by the theory of "Objectivism", promoted by philosopher/writer Ayn Rand. Titles include "Avenging World" and "Mr. A" (Title taken from Rand's maxim "A is A"). His heavy-handed and often preachy writing style in these books earned him the derisive nickname "Ditko the Dictator".|
|1||I know why I left Marvel but no one else in this universe knew or knows why. It may be of a mild interest to realize that Stan Lee chose not to know, or hear why, I left.|
|2||Steve Ditko is a brand name. It's not what I'm like that counts. If a person knows the what and whys, he knows all about the 'who' that is important to know.|
|3||I prefer conflicts that are based on reality rather than based on fantasy. When you get wound up with super villains, super fantastic gadgets and super incredible action, everything has to be made so deliberately that it all becomes senseless. It boils down to what you want a story to stand for. Every person, whether he wants to be or not, is in a continuous struggle. It is a struggle to keep his mind from being corrupted.|
