Superman was one of my favorite superheros when I was a kid. Since then, I've become more of a Batman guy, but Superman is still pretty awesome.  I saw today that the cape worn by Christopher Reeve in the original 1978 Superman movie was recently sold at auction for $193,750.

The auction, held Monday by Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills featured a bunch of other cool celebrity merchandise, like  Patrick Stewart’s “Starfleet” dress uniform from Star Trek: The Next Generation (which sold for $28,800) and Leonard Nimoy’s Spock Romulan costume from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ($20,000) as well as a couple of original paintings by Frank Sinatra. One sold for $75K, the other for $21,000.
