The Superhero Team-Up Artwork That Sold For Hundreds On Pawn Stars

Superhero movies are the most popular form of entertainment right now. People anticipate major releases, speculating for months before a film's premiere about whether Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will end up in the next "Spider-Man" movie. It's why films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are some of the most successful box office hits of all time. People love watching larger-than-life characters fighting to save the universe.

The only thing that would be better than watching the Avengers would be to see them team up with the Justice League. Director James Gunn has actually floated the idea to various studio heads, seeing how he's made films for both Marvel and DC. While it's a long shot for a crossover to happen on the big screen, it's occurred several times in the comics. 

One such instance was in 1995's "Disordered Minds," which saw Batman and Spider-Man join forces to stop Joker and Carnage. The guys on History's "Pawn Stars" had the chance to see some panels from this storyline up close when a seller showcased it in the episode "Rick Gets Axed." As expected, it's a rare piece, and the seller had a nice payday out of it.

Corey spent $1,000 for the art piece

Comic book art can go for a lot of money, especially if the panel itself is iconic in some way. That's certainly the case with this item, as it has images of Batman, Spider-Man, and Joker. Of course, the pièce de résistance is that Batman and Spider-Man are in the Batmobile together. It's a cool page, and Corey and Chumlee recognize that immediately. They need to know how much they can get out of it, so they call in their art expert, Brett Maly, to take a look at it. 

After he authenticates that it's a legitimate piece from artist Mark Bagley, he says it could be worth in value anywhere between $1,500 and $2,000. That's good news for the seller, as he originally wanted $1,200 out of it. He and Corey go back and forth for a little bit and ultimately settle on $1,000. 

It's a relatively rare item, and while not everyone can own it, you can at least purchase a copy of the one-shot that contains the finished product. It's a fun read if you're into the characters, but do you want to know the best thing about the comic book? Peter Parker sports a mullet. That is all.
