The Question: DC’s “Action Comics #1” features the first appearance of what superhero?
In June 1938, DC Comics released the first issue of their anthology series “Action Comics.” The comic book featured stories about Tex Thompson, Zatara Master Magician, and Scoop Scanlon the Five Star Reporter, but is most famous for including the first-ever appearance of Superman. The Man of Steel’s story originally sold on newsstands for just 10 cents, but in 2021, copies of the comic sold for more than $3,000,000. Only 100 copies of the issue are believed to exist today.
The correct answer is Superman.
