The Significance and Possibilities of the ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ Line

DC Super Hero Girls-feat

Yesterday, DC Entertainment announced a new consumer products line called DC Super Hero Girls, which will involve them teaming up with partners like Mattel, Random House, and Lego to create product for girls ages 6-12. This is a big deal not just in terms of comics, but in terms of licensed products for kids. But is this kind of gendered initiative what we need? Or is it, as some have stated, "pandering"? Unsurprisingly, I have a lot of thoughts on this matter.

Toy Review: Mezco One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman

Mezco One12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman

As one of the most celebrated Batman stories of all time, The Dark Knight Returns has influenced a generation of fans with its grim and gritty portrayal of a hero pushed to every last limit. There have been collectibles and figures throughout the years that pay tribute to Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley's seminal piece, but none have done it in quite the same way as Mezco's new One:12 Collective version.

Hot Toys’ Ultron Mark I Has No Strings to Hold Him Down

Hot Toys

Everywhere you go these days, there seems to be a new kind of Ultron-something-something waiting in the wings. There are costumes, playsets, t-shirts, posters, commercials, movies, and even action figures of the genocidal robot. Truly, we are living in an Age of Ultron.

Case in point, the latest Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron figure which harkens back to Ultron's origin, such as it is in the upcoming film. The Ultron Mark I figure presents a much more raw artificial intelligence, as his body is an amalgamation of parts, pieces and ideas that haven't fully formed into the Ultron Prime we've already seen in both figure form and in advertisements for Marvel's blockbuster sequel

16 Forgotten Image Comics Action Figure Lines

Image Comics
Image Comics

A little over twenty years ago, a group of creators left the confines of Marvel Comics for the wild world of indies. By forming Image Comics, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino set a new precedent for comics.

Of course, the 1990s were a dangerous time for the industry. The speculative market imploded not long after the Image exodus, and the comic market still hasn't recovered all these years later. But we're not here to lament the days of old, when single issues sold in the millions and drawing comics was as big a deal as being in Guns 'N Roses (depending on how many pages Wizard devoted to you in a given month). No, we're here to talk about all the ridiculous action figure lines these Image Comics spawned (heh) that you probably forgot all about.
