    While some would argue that it's not important how she pays for anything, where she lives and what Zola's last name is, I think it's pretty important.

    Perhaps she stays in places kept by other gods or mythical creatures. Not hers necessarily, but they gave her a key off panel to the places they don't use often.

    I get your point, but, how ..much are we asking for here? Seriously...

    You know Bruce Wayne lives in his family's ancestral mansion in Gotham City, called Wayne Manor. We know Clark Kent is a reporter at the Daily Planet in a midwestern city, called Metropolis, and keeps an apartment, somewhere in town.

    Is it so much trouble to tell us that Wonder Woman lives in the Camelot Arms Hotel (making her a high-end callgirl) or a large townhouse in the heart of
    London ..or something? How much trouble is that? A responsible editor should be mindful of these details, because that's an editor's job.

    Maybe, we should just drive the editor of Wonder Woman bonkers with these questions.

    Making money:
    Barbara Gordon? (not sure)
    BoP members?
    Starfire/Roy Harper
    TT (if living off off Bruce's money doesn't count)
    Madam Xanadu
    Supergirl doesn't appear to have an income yet...or anything outside of Super
    Constantine (assuming he doesn't just trick people out of their money)
    Niles Caulder
    Cyborg (if he isn't government funded)
    Hal Jordan (when was the last time he actually had a normal job? or a house for that matter?)
    Not sure if Superboy counts since he apparently doesn't understand the concept of ownership

    Add to this there are all the 'special team' members of the likes of Team 7 and Stormwatch.

    Hal lost everything he had in Green Lantern #1 and became a bum. After destroying the Sinestro Corps he was sleeping at Carol's place. And then he went off to fight the Indigo Tribe and then he died. Preboot he was a pilot.

    She can get money by producing gold coins from her cuffs. At least that would be a good way to channel her power and redistribute the wealth

    maybe shes a bounty hunter..
    Rogue and Bishop's daughter would be called Discharge, and she'd touch people and drain all or some of their bioelectrical energy out of them causing them to either die or fall unconscious. She could then use this energy to extend her own life, heal herself, enhance her physical abilities (speed, strength, stamina,) or discharge it as various energy beams.

    Cyborg is what 21? he was junior i think in high school in JLA 1 wasnt he? Also his father is a top notch scientist so he probably doesn't have to worry about money. Also he's constantly wired into the net or other security systems legally or otherwise, which means he could be making a fortune or e-bay, selling justice league stuff.

    one simple answer also exist, everyone is on Batman's payroll.

    Maybe Wonder Woman goes to Pandora regularly with all the other bounty hunters from Borderlands and she collects the booty regularly from them after they get their money?

    Wouldn't at least Supergirl be strong enough to crush coal into diamonds and get quick cash that way. Don't know about the others.

    Starfire probably doesn't have a problem with cash she and her sister a pretty good terms so she has accese to whatever being the princess of a planet has to offer as for Roy he used to work for Green Arrow but probably just mooches off of Jason's money.
    Madam Xanadu probably does her fortune telling thing I feel like I saw her working at a place like that in JLD though she may just be insanely wealthy from accumulating money the last few hundred years but I could be wrong.
    Don't think Kara really needs a job she doesn't need to eat, sleep, or breath as long as she keeps her powers charged and she has a home were the only neighbor she has to worry about is Ocean Master.
