    I won’t hold my breath, but it would be awesome to see. Can you imagine Amazing Spider-Man and classic Captain America figures, etc in the very same vein as the Super Powers figures? Maybe we’ll witness it.

    I had a Lex back in the 80's and had no idea that his armor could be removed without breaking it, I never even tried!

    It's a pretty great idea and I think it would fly considering the "Super Powers Generation" are parents now but i doubt companies put that kind of effort into toylines anymore.

    I don’t know anything about research and development in toy companies, or anywhere else, but the level of creativity and development, that was still present in the 1980s, does not seem to be present, in any quantity, today. I suppose that’s why so many things are hit and miss. Of course, that is far from limited to the toy industry.

    The line still has a strong following today. In Mattel's DC Classics line, they made sure to make two versions of some characters like the Parademons, one comic accurate and the other the SP version. And they even made 6" versions of Golden Pharaoh and Cyclotron, as well as SP decoed versions of the main figures. It's still an important line in the history of super hero toys.
