    Action Comics #1 sells for one million dollars

    Rare Superman Comic Sells for $1 Million - ArtsBeat Blog -

    On a semi-related note if you ever get a chance to read copies of Superman's first few appearances, before he could fly(that came after the radio serial) and had far more limited powers in general, they are really interesting. Superman was a two-fisted champion of justice who smacked around war profiteers, lobbyists and wife beaters. He's a lot different from the mad scientist fighting boy scout he turned into.
    The only proof he needed for the existance of God was music.
    Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

    Without music, life would be a mistake.

    Wow. That's a lot of money, but Superman is one of the most iconic superheroes out there and his first issue is probably the oldest of any superhero comic still popular.

    I rented that from the library when I was in junior high. Not the actual issue, of course. But the Smithsonian had released a ton of huge thick covered books with lots of comics in them. One of them was all comics from the 1920s to 1950s and it had the first issue of Superman and the first issue of Batman. He was definitely a super man and not an invincible alien.

    More ammo for the Batman vs. Superman geek fight
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
