COMICS: Copy Of <i>The Avengers #4</i> Sells For A Record Price!

With his movie set to be released in July, the classic issue that brought Captain America into the modern Marvel Universe has just sold for a record amount! Hit the jump for details...

Although he didnt create Captain America, it was Stan Lee (along with the brilliant Jack Kirby) who reintroduced the iconic character into the Marvel Universe we all know and love back in Avengers #4 in 1964. A CGC 9.6 copy of the issue last night went for $91,500 at ComicLink — a new record for this issue by a large amount. Apparently, there are only 7 copies certified in this grade and none higher.

While this price may seem a little low in comparison to the six figure sums that the likes of Amazing Fantasty #15 (the first appearence of Spider-Man) or Fantastic Four #1 attract, it's worth remembering that Captain America's comic book debut actually took place twenty years earlier than this issue during WWII. However, this is still a great price which is only going to increase in value with both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers set to hit cinemas in the next couple of years.
