DC Releases Badly Needed Superman and Batman Action Figures
Admittedly, these are different from the millions of Superman and Batman figures currently available, as they are based on DC’s All-Star comics; where Superman is dying of sun poisoning and Batman is calling small children retarded (in all fairness, Robin asked a very stupid question).
That’s Superman and Lois Lane as Super Lois, as drawn by Frank Quitely on the right, and Batman and Batgirl as drawn by Jim Lee (and surely influenced by All Star Batman writer Frank Miller) on the left. They’re due in September, meaning you’ll have forgotten all about ’em when they’re released. (Via Action-Figure)
About The Author
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
