An investor who spent more than $2.1m of his pocket money on an old Superman comic has been grounded. Relatives of David Bonner often commented that he 'lived in a fantasy land', but his latest purchase reveals how detached from reality he's become.
Bonner's mother, Sandy, found the comic under his bed when cleaning his room. When confronted, Bonner admitted that he'd bought it from someone who was 'wearing a costume a bit like Batman'. He claims he was bullied into handing over his cash, or face 'an ass kicking'.
Bonner's parents are worried that their son has absolutely no concept of the value of money. "Only last week we had to stop some bigger boys selling him a load of Manhattan apartments", admitted his father. "David's never been able to say 'no' to suites."
