Looks like Christopher Dennis will be spending a little more time in his Fortress of Solitude after his Superman memorabilia obsession ruined his marriage. Hopefully, he has that 1975 issue of Playboy featuring Margot Kidder to keep him company.
The Sun reported that Dennis’ collection of Superman toys lead to his divorce with Bonnie Finkenthal after only one year. His now ex-wife said, “If you marry Chris you marry his collection.” Before you go thinking she’s a total nofunik, know that his collection of crap is valued at £65,000 ($100,000 USD).
How expensive was being hitched to the man of steel groupie? Well, his uncontrollable obsession with everything Superman put a huge financial strain on the relationship. Dennis would often chose to buy a Superman toy over paying the bills. I guess life with Dennis was less like Superman: The Movie and more like Superman IV: The Quest For Peace.
Or, maybe she was also just sick of being married to a man who goes grocery shopping wearing his underwear outside his pants.
If you recognize Dennis, that’s because he was featured in documentary called “Confessions of a Superhero.” A movie about the costumed superheroes that work the tourist trap area of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
