NYCC '08 Action Figure Preview Part 6: DC Super Heroes from Mattel

DC Super Heroes Supergirl

I have to admit, when I first read about this new DC line from Mattel -- to my mind, an analogue to Hasbro's Marvel Legends -- I wasn't that impressed. It just seemed boring, with a bunch of starter heroes like Nightwing and Penguin that just made me go bleah.

But the DC Super Heroes display at New York Comic Con contained an intriguing assortment of characters, including the Cassandra Cain Batgirl and two different versions of Firestorm.

My only quibble? Blue Superman. Do we really need another figure of this version?

  1. Man, those are gigantic utility belts on the Bat-folks.

  2. I heart Batgirl & I especially heart Batgirl with a giant utility belt. I like that she's a tiny little gymnast's build of a girl with THE SAME BELT as the big bad Bat. Oh Cass, man, oh Cass.

  3. Is it me, or is Diana looking a little, uh, lanky there?

  4. I'll take 20 gross cartons of Batgirl, please.

    They need to fluff out the back of Wonder Woman's hair. She looks kinda pinheaded.

  5. I forgot... The Catwoman is the best looking of the bunch. I love that costume and the pose makes her look ready for some stealin'!

  6. Is it just me, or is Clark Kent about a half-inch taller than Superman?!
