Superman might have superhuman strength and X-ray vision but he has been seen off by Spider-Man, after a comic featuring Spidey’s first appearance overtook the Man of Steel’s record to become the most expensive ever sold.
A copy of the 1962 comic Amazing Fantasy #15, in which Peter Parker and his alter ego Spider-Man make their debut on the page, was sold on Thursday at Heritage Auctions for $3.6m (£2.5m). The record for a comic sale had previously been held by Superman’s first appearance in Action Comics #1, which sold privately for $3.25m in April.
