Off THEIR Minds: Could Superheroes' Costumes be Tax Deductible?

We ask James Asmus, Kyle Higgins, J.T. Krul, Jimmy Palmiotti, James Tynion IV, Scott Lobdell and Brian Buccellato the question.

As it now tax season, you have to wonder what superheroes do about their taxes? For many, their primary profession is being a superhero. There are some that may make an income from using their superpowers. (This is actually a question asked at Emerald City Comicon).

Besides their power, a big part of being a superhero is their costume. Because they often throw themselves into extremely dangerous situations against powerful villains, these costumes can get damaged or torn.

Not all heroes have the luxury of an organization providing new costumes for them. The cost for repairs or replacement would come out of their own pocket. So the question is, could they write off this cost on their taxes?

We asked ames Asmus, Kyle Higgins, J.T. Krul, Jimmy Palmiotti, James Tynion IV, Scott Lobdell and Brian Buccellato what they thought about this at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA.
