** As Xavier's "strongest telepath in the world" title often tends to fall into the murky realms of InformedAbility, one could argue that his deep pockets are in fact his ''primary'' superpower, with his actual telepathy being a "secondary mutation" as they are called in the X-books. Indeed, Xavier's ridiculous and improbable (it's never quite explained ''where'' all his money comes from, except with the occasional HandWave that the Xavier family is OldMoney) is even lampshaded in-universe, with the loner character Dr. Nemesis initially turning down an offer to join the X-Men because "I won't be bought out by you dilettantes with your bottomless bank accounts."

* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', Fred is the only member besides the robot Baymax who isn't a science/engineering major, so he doesn't has the skills to weaponize his tech. However, he comes from an extremely rich family, so besides from being the one who controls the firebreathing {{Kaiju}} suit, he supplies the money, materials, and a lab/workshop that's needed for the team.

* The Revenant is the Batman [[{{Expy}} analog]] with a heavy dose of GenreSavvy in the comic ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}''. At one point he muses "I sometimes think access to cash is the greatest superpower of all".

--->'''Barry''': ...what are your superpowers, again?
--->'''Bruce''': I'm rich.

** But since several teams had theirs built on the cheap, and at one point a cybercafe owner is shown to be able to fund the construction and maintenance of morphers, zords, bikes, and other assorted doodads, it's unlikely that Andrew spent a vast sum on his ops center.
*** Hayley (the aforementioned cybercafe owner) was a rocket scientist ("among other things") who ''built them herself''. Hartford would have had to hire rocket scientists. Also, the base in ''Operation Overdrive'' was a lot more elaborate than Dr. Oliver's basement in ''[[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]'', and the zords in ''Dino Thunder'' were found and tamed, not built.

* Kate Bishop of ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers''. At the end of the first arc, she sets the team up in a run-down building owned by her family's business and uses a few connections in the fashion industry to replace their ruined costumes (or, in her case, just make one).

* Kate Bishop of ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers''.ComicBook/KateBishop, back when the ComicBook/YoungAvengers were just starting out. At the end of the first arc, she sets the team up in a run-down building owned by her family's business and uses a few connections in the fashion industry to replace their ruined costumes (or, in her case, just make one). She's moved away from this since then, however, and as of 2017 her father is being built up as one of her ''enemies''.
