It’s one of the most revered toylines ever produced and arguably my favorite. After a pretty solid run in the hands of the Mego Corporation the DC Comics license eventually found it’s way to Kenner who had achieved rock star status with their Star Wars line. Dubbed simply “The Super Powers Collection”, Kenner’s toyline consisted of a myriad of assorted heroes and about as many villains from the pages of DC Comics. Each figure featured premium sculpting and paintwork especially for the time as well as “super powered action feature”; hence the name Super Powers.
Here and there we’ll be taking a look at the major players from the line as well as some second- and third-string goodness. But tonight I’m kicking it off with two my favorites:
Batman and Robin
The World’s Greatest Detective
The Boy Wonder
“Atomic Batteries to power. Turbines to speed.”
