Comic book fans will be able to get their hands on a piece of superhero history this month (May09) - the suit Christopher Reeve wore as Superman is to go under the hammer in Australia.
The red, blue and yellow outfit that was donned by the late Reeve in 1983 film Superman III is now being offered for sale in Melbourne, Australia by a private collector.
The leotard, which bears the famous S logo, was used in Superman II, while the red trunks and yellow belt are from Reeve's debut as the Man of Steel in 1978's Superman The Movie.
The costume is expected to fetch between $11,470 (£7,646) and $15,294 (£10,196) when it goes to auction on 24 May (09).
Reeve played the superhero in four movies between 1978 and 1987. He died aged 52 in 2004.
