Death Dealer vs. Superman: Who Wins?

Well, it isn’t exactly the duel that you think it is.  Recently, a comic auction was held in Chicago.  The auction included some of the most well-known characters in comic-book history such as Superman, Batman, and the Joker. However, an unlikely piece flew past the Man of Steel (pun intended).  “Death Dealer 6”, a fantasy painting by well known science fiction and fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta, sold for a mind-blowing $1.8 million, rounded up.  It was only expected to sell for $600,000.  In comparison, a 1938 comic of Superman went for $573,600, but was expected to sell at a price of $650,000.  In addition, a 1940 comic of Batman sold for a mere $227,050 (I say that facetiously).  I think that the Death Dealer piece is amazing.  While I’m not sure about the $1.8 million price tag, I can see why it (super)powered past the competition.
