Final Thoughts:

While it nice to have a Superman from a different earth, i feel like Mattel really missed that mark on this one. They are re-using the body from the New 52 Superman and while that isn't a bad thing, it feels like they just tossed that cape on the back with no thought into it, it looks like a giant napkin just resting on his back. While the overall figure itself isn't bad the cape really takes it down a few pegs in my book

Time for some Toying Around!!!!
