I love it! Superman really does save the day for one family

Asylum reports that a family was packing up their belongings after their bank had started foreclosure proceedings, when they came across a box of comic books in the basement.

But this wasn't just any box, and the family suspected they'd struck gold when they discovered among the titles "Action Comics No. 1," the comic that introduced 

Superman to the world and brought to life the superhero genre, which remains popular to this day.

It also happens to be worth upward of $250,000!
