How much is Superman worth? $1 million!

That was the record-breaking price for a rare copy of the first comic book featuring the Man of Steel: A 1938 edition of Action Comics number one, the Associated Press reported:

It features Superman lifting a car on its cover and originally cost 10 cents.

It was sold by a private seller to a private buyer, neither of whom released their names. The sale was conducted by the auction site

The sale smashed by a mile the previous record of $317,000 for another copy of the same issue. The new one is reportedly in better condition, hence the bigger price tag.

Would you pay $1 million for a comic? If we had it, I think we would. After all, Superman!
