There are superheroes and supervillains who are filthy rich, but they always spend the money inefficiently on gadgets and stuff and do everything themselves.

Lex Luthor occasionally averts this. Sure, he's generally the one piloting the giant robot, but at least he has snipers take out his enemies.

I'm pretty sure they all avert it occasionally. They just don't avert it nearly often enough.
