($1,000,000 for War Orphans) - All-Star Comics #7

This story marks not only the Superman’s first appearance in a non-Superman story (and the first appearance by the Man of Steel in a comic book or newspaper tale not written by co-creator Jerry Siegel), but it is his first time in-story standing shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow heroes, including the Dark Knight himself, the Batman! Follow along with the Caped Crusader’s lead-up to this historic moment at The Daily Batman!

BONUS: The Batman!

Batman ad - Action Comics #12

Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, the Dark Knight would make his debut two weeks later in DETECTIVE COMICS (1939) #27.
