The comic book movie industry could collapse if these lawsuits keep happening.

Happens about twice a year.  Grin
Marvel will pay a little, very little, settle it out of court.

Only one family (creator's families) has ever won the battle and that was Siegel and Shuster ... and that was only because DC bought Superman from them, not that they worked for DC when they created Superman ... that's the biggie.

If Kirby's Family gets a paltry amount, a tiny, tiny amount, no-one else is every get much more. Hope they get a little something, obviously, but again, if Kirby's kids weren't awarded a shit-ton ... It isn't gonna happen

In my opinion anyway  Smiley
