June 15, 2016: Mezco Unveils One:12 Collective Classic Superman FigurePrint

Mezco One:12 Classic Superman Figure Mezco Toyz has announced the upcoming release of their One:12 Collective Classic Superman Figure.

The sole survivor of his dying home planet Krypton, Superman was raised by his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent as their son Clark on a modest farm in Kansas.

Having developed powers far beyond those of mortal men and imbued with a strong moral compass, Clark takes up the fight for truth and justice as Superman. Although he is based in the big city of Metropolis, Superman is global hero, righting wrongs worldwide. He is†arguably the greatest and most powerful hero in the DC universe.

Our One:12 Collective Superman figure is digitally modeled to craft an hyper-realistic portraiture. This fully posable figure is assembled on a signature One:12 body with over 32 points of articulation. Additionally this figure features meticulously crafted cloth costuming with sculpted details to create an amazing collectible.

The One:12 Collective Superman features:

  • Hyper-realistic facial sculpt
  • Real fabric uniform and cape
  • Sculpted chest logo and belt

Included with this figure:
  • Standard portrait
  • Alternate portrait
  • Fists (L & R)
  • Flying hands†(L & R)
  • Posing hands†(L & R)
  • Bottled City Of Kandor
  • Set of 2 posable chains
  • Kryptonite meteorite
  • Ricocheting bullet effect (attaches magnetically to chest logo)
  • Display base with posing post
  • Cape posing clip (attaches to the posing post)
  • Chain posing clip (attaches to the posing post)

June 15, 2016: Funko Unveils SDCC Exclusive Superman "False God" Variant FigurePrint

The "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" figure is based on the tribute statue sculpted in dedication to Superman in the aftermath of the Black Zero event seen in "Man of Steel". During "Batman v Superman" the words "False God" were spray painted on the chest of the statue by Wallace Keefe (played by Scoot McNairy).

Like every San Diego Comic-Con exclusive from Funko this year, the Superman figure will be a limited edition release. Information regarding Funko's booth procedures will be released in early July.

Was the outcome ever in doubt? Once the green pill - wait, wasn't this pill supposed to be gone? Yet Harley Quinn has a bottle of them, and Batman has just one more, so we get this. My biggest disappointment is that Batman is even questioning killing Regime, which is ludicrous. What is the point of this issue? To make up for the beating Batman took in Year One, issue #24? To have more bloodied and puffy faced images of Superman, for the battle boards to rage over? It surely wasn't to develop any character or move along the plot, which was left back in Year Two. Just a waste of time and space.

Is it ironic when a story is extended so it can be decompressed further? Injustice normally concludes at this point, but it continues on, because there is no mercy for this critic. There can only be so much time between Alfred's murder and Batman's appearance. Instead of being treated to a show of his superior detective skills in locating Zsasz, which would be a feast for the famished at this point, readers are shown Batman magically appearing where Zsasz is, and the perfunctory beat down of he villain, where we wonder if he'll kill him or not (don't worry, he won't). Damian shows up to put forward the obligatory ultimatum... and it's all so uncompromisingly boring. We are right back where we started where a Batman villain kills someone of import, and we have to watch the connected character react to it. Dull, dull, dull. We still haven't seen any resolution to Regime Superman's loss, and so this reversal falls flat. I guess Regime will show up next issue, he'll fight Batman, yadda yadda.

June 15, 2016: Kotobukiya Unveils New 52 Bizarro ARTFX+ StatuePrint

Kotobukiya has unveiled the next statue in their ARTFX+ line of statues - New 52 Bizarro.

Kotobukiya's lineup of statues based on the superheroes and villains of DC Comics continues to grow, and the latest addition is the modern incarnation of the anti-Superman BIZARRO!

In the New 52 era of DC Comics Bizarro did not come from another planet or parallel dimension, but rather Lex Luthor's laboratory where the supervillain scientist was attempting to clone the Man of Steel. The experiments did not go as planned, but when the Crime Syndicate took over the world Luthor was forced to seek an ally in the clone labeled "B-0" and subsequently called Bizarro. Though he possessed limited intelligence and a mutated form the clone had incredible superpowers, tremendous loyalty, and a noble spirit.

Bizarro joins the New 52 ARTFX+ Statue lineup with a remarkable presentation that truly captures the character's unique traits and reflects his Frankenstein's Monster-like origin. Bizarro's pose is both powerful and inquisitive with the monstrous clone standing with his legs shoulder-width apart and his thick, muscled chest pushed out along with a twist to his upper body and a curious cock to his head. His metallic blue pants and red boots and belt look like they came right out of the Man of Steel's closet, though his faded blue shirt with crudely stitched on, backwards Superman logo betrays his inferior nature. And while Bizarro has a superhero physique with rippling muscles, he also has unnatural bulging veins, ruptured skin, a misshapen skull, ash-like skin, sunken white eyes, and just a small tuft of hair on top of his head. The tragic character looks great, and the accent of the yellow flower in his outstretched hand makes this presentation perfect.

Sculpted by Ikkei Jitsukata, Bizarro stands just over 8 inches tall (1/10 scale) and like all ARTFX+ statues he has magnets in his feet for extra stability on his included display base. He may be an inferior clone but Bizarro will look great in your DC Comics ARTFX+ Statue collection and he pairs perfectly with characters like Lex Luthor, Sinestro, Black Adam, or even Superman himself!

June 14, 2016: Casting Superman Role for "Supergirl" - Poll ResultsPrint

Poll Position In the latest Superman Homepage Member Poll we asked you the following question:

With the role of Superman being cast for Season 2 of "Supergirl", who do you want in the role?

I'm really surprised that so many people want Tom Welling to play Superman in Season 2 of "Supergirl". He was good in "Smallville", but he never wanted to play the role of Superman in the costume for that show, so it's near impossible he'd consider donning the tights now.

The next most popular choice was for them to cast an unknown actor to play Superman. I think that's what they'll end up doing.
