    The Super Powers brand is purely nostaliga driven at this point. Maybe McFarlane is trying to make it a general, anything goes DC brand...put he already has the Multiverse line for that, AND the new Page Punchers figures that could be that. Anything post 1990-something I think should be more or less left out of SP. The Hush Batman's costume is essentially the same as DKR and Batman:Year One, and to a lesser extent, the Golden Age costume, so it makes enough sense for me.

    My guess is that Mcfarlane is pushing this as a cheap budget lines that parents will buy for the price, but will also attract collectors for the pedigree.

    total agree with this
    i think this is planed as a evergreen line that spans all the dc comics eras past present and future with a bit of something for everyone at a affordable price point with some great vehicles and playsets

    super kid and collector friendly

    a great strategy in my opinion just hope it makes it over to the uk and the rest of the world at some point

    Found the Batwing today but it rang up at $29.97 and I don't want to pay that much. Bought Batman, though. Almost bought Darkseid, but he's never been a favorite and how many Darkseid figures do I really need?

    It's just very cool that these are $10 and I hope they keep going. I'd love if they did Cyborg.

    I'm really glad I found the Batwing for $20. It's a great toy, but it is a bit small. It's like a mini one-man Batwing, so $30 isn't as great of a value.

    Batwing is still listed on their website as $19.97, so I could probably get one ordering online for store pickup. It's just weird that stores do that... Staples is notorious for having brick and mortar prices that are higher than their site.

    Owning both vehicles, my guess is it's a mistake in the system of some stores. The Supermobile is quite a bit bigger and heftier, and the $30 price tag isn't surprising at all.

    Yeah, it's like having 90s EXTREME characters like Forearm, Ahab and X-cutioner in series 1 of an Xmen line with no Magneto.

    Bat laughs is just such a pathetically cringeworthy parody level grim dark character. It still wouldn't even had been a blip on my roll my eyes radar if the character had been released much later after better villains like armor Lex, Bizarro, Catwoman, or a regular SP joker.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...
