Wolverine co-creator Len Wein has said that he has received more royalties from the Dark Knight trilogy than all the X-Men films combined.

The writer has earned more from his minor character Lucius Fox in Christopher Nolan's films than he has from the Canadian mutant, who has currently appeared in six films and starred in five of them.

Wein said that it is frustrating that he has not been credited for Hugh Jackman's character in 20th Century Fox's franchise.

"It's less frustrating for the characters I created at DC," he told the Los Angeles Times.

"Money comes with the anonymity, at least. I have contracts that guarantee me some small piece of the action. Lucius Fox has earned me a great deal more money than Wolverine ever has, although I will say that for the latest film Marvel did send me a nice cheque."
