Iron Man 3 easily swept the weekend box office with a massive haul of $175.3 million.

Overseas, the third installment of the Iron Man film franchise took in a half-billion, bringing its worldwide tally to $680.1 million. According to reports, no other solo superhero — not even Batman or Spider-Man — has managed to rake in so much at the movies.

Iron Man 3 had the second-biggest domestic debut ever, behind the $207.4 million start over the same weekend last year for The Avengers. The new sequel also surpassed the $169.2 million opening for 2011’s Harry Potter finale, the previous second-place debut.

Last weekend’s top film, Pain and Gain, fell to #2 with $7.6 million; 42 held steady at #3 with $6.2 million; Oblivion fell to #4 with $5.7 million; and The Croods closed out the top 5 with $4.2 million.

This weekend’s top 10 is as follows:

1. “Iron Man 3,” $175.3 million.
2. “Pain & Gain,” $7.6 million.
3. “42,” $6.2 million.
