Kapow! Batman Kicks Superman's Ass.

From Annalyn Censky at CNNMoney: Batman comic book beats Superman at Auction, sets record.

The Dark Knight may be Superman's next greatest nemesis, after Lex Luthor.

Just three days after auction site ComicConnect.com claimed to break world records when it sold an original Superman comic for $1 million, Batman stole his thunder.

A rare, high-quality copy of Detective Comics #27, which marked the first appearance of Batman in 1939, sold for $1,075,000 on Thursday. Heritage Auctions of Dallas sold the comic book to an unnamed bidder on behalf of an anonymous collector.

According to MSNBC, the 1939 comic that contained Batman's debut topped Superman's selling price by $75,500. According to Greg Rohan, president of Heritage, "The buyer wanted to be extremely anonymous, but I can say he's a very serious comic book collector and has been since childhood."

OK. I admit it was me who bought it. As if. Man I really need to make more money if I ever want to own these someday. How about you? Would anyone shell out this kind of dough if they had the money to pay these kind of prices?
