Superman Rescues Family from Foreclosure



More than 70 years after Superman first saved the day in the pages of a comic book, the Man of Steel has reached out and saved a family in the real world.

While packing up the home they expected to lose, a family found their hero stashed in the basement, when they came across "Action Comics No. 1"  in their basement. The family struck gold when they discovered the comic book that introduced Superman to the world and brought the superhero to life.

The comic is expected to fetch more than a quater-million dollars when it goes up for auction. In February 2010, a copy of "Action Comic No. 1" sold for $1 million, followed a month later by the sale of another copy in better condition at 1.5 million.
