Pic of the Day 46 - Super Heroes Week 1 - Superman

Superman, from Superman/Batman: Public Enemies wave 1 by DC Direct.

I've really enjoyed the Superman/Batman series, and Public Enemies was the first that got me hooked on the idea. The art, by Ed McGuinness, was odd to my eyes at first, exaggerated proportions, especially the thighs (you should see the thighs on the girls, they're massive!), and the males' chests. But I liked the story, and the art really grew on me, and I was glad to see it again in S/B: Vengeance.

This figure is actually the first repaint of the original Superman, from wave 1, which had a deeper, metallic blue. I had it, but decided to keep this one (from a 2 pack with Batman and a copy of the story) because it better matched Superwoman from wave 4 and Supergirl from wave 5. It's actually being repainted again soon, being rereleased with Batman (yet again), Flash and Wonderwoman (the last two formerly of the JLA Classified line.

Remember Kids: All those things I can do. All those powers. And I couldn't even save him. - Superman

A couple of years ago I would have thought you didn't even like Superman (because he pales in comparison to Batman).
And now, look how many you have. I think the more we have learned about Superman, the more we like him.
