Super Powers Collection: Superman The Man of Steel Fights for Truth and Justice

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:An excellent representation of Superman; love everything about it

Cons:Cape is breakable if not careful

The Bottom Line: No Super Powers Collection is complete without Superman. I dare you to say otherwise.


The Super Power Collection really excited me when I first saw it back in 1984. I was ecstatic that there was a brand new collection featuring my favourite DC Comics superheroes. I knew I needed to have it all but I didn't even know where to begin. To make it even more enticing, each character had a special power action feature. Naturally it was only a matter of time before I got my hands on DC's flagship character—Superman.

Superman, the Man of Steel is the perennial superhero of all time, the one who inspired a plethora of others that followed suit. Rocketed to Earth from the doomed planet Krypton, young Kal-El was discovered by Jonathan and Martha Kent who adopted him and named him Clark. Upon discovering his powers thanks to the Earth's yellow sun, Clark adopted the guise of Superman to fight for truth and justice.

Without a doubt, this is one of the best Superman figures ever. I know action figures have evolved over the past twenty years becoming much more detailed in nature but Kenner's Superman still holds up to this very day. I can honestly say that this is the figure that I played with the most. After all, it's Superman. He wears his familiar blue and red costume with the famous S-shield on his chest. I really love the shade of blue used for this figure and wish the current crop of Superman figures go back to this brighter blue.

His cloth cape attaches around his neck with a half plastic ring that snaps into place. It is removable but over the course of time it might break. I do love his detailed head right from his blue eyes to the spit curl from his hair. And what is Superman without the use of his Power Action Punch? Squeeze his legs together and watch the Man of Steel plow his way through his enemies.

Superman has seven-points of articulation. He can move his head, arms, legs and knees. He also comes with a bio card that can be cut out from the packaging and a mini comic book.

It's not surprising that my Superman has a lot of wear and tear but is still durable even to this day. It's hard to have any collection from DC Comics without a Superman in its lineup. Surprisingly, he is not the first Super Powers figure I picked up. That honour belongs to the Flash (I don't know why I chose the Flash first; I think I was trying to be different and unpredictable at the time). But I do remember that Superman was the third figure that I eventually added to my Super Powers Collection (Batman was second—go figure!). I just knew that when I finally had Superman in my possession, it was a magical moment. That feeling still hasn't changed at all.
