Superman - Superman Comic Makes $2.2 Million
A comic book featuring Superman's first appearance has sold for a record-breaking $2.2 million (£1.4 million).
Action Comics No 1 originally sold for just $0.10 (£0.06) upon its release in 1938, and now a copy of the rare edition has made millions at an online auction and become the world's most expensive comic.
The comic book, which features the Man of Steel's debut, was rumoured to have once been owned by Hollywood star Nicolas Cage.
It was sold to an anonymous bidder on Wednesday (30Nov11) through New York-based company ComicConnect.
