Chalk one up for The Dark Knight in the eternal debate over whether Batman could beat Superman. Just a few days after Superman's debut in "Action Comics" #1 set a new record at the auction block with a winning bid of $1 million, Batman upped the ante with a $1,075,000 sale of "Detective Comics" #27, featuring the character's first appearance.
The sale was made via Heritage Auction Galleries, which has posted a video tour of the near-mint comic's cover and interior. The identity of the comic's buyer remains a secret.
So, despite "Action Comics" #1 pre-dating "Detective Comics" #27 by nearly a year and arguably having a much more important place in the growth of the comic book industry, it looks like Batman beats Superman yet again, folks. Still, when money's concerned, you'd be a fool to bet against Bruce Wayne.
