|Superman (Kryptonian life suit)(DCUC wave 6)|
|Figure (and number):||Wave 6 Figure 4|
|Points of Articulation:||23|
When the menace known as Doomsday came to Earth, it fell to Superman to battle him to a standstill...and the death! Though it cost him his life, The Man of Steel saved his adopted homeworld. Superman's death activated The Eradicator, an entity from Krypton, who assumed Superman's identity and placed the body of the fallen hero in a suit designed to reignite the spark of life in the Last Son of Krypton.
Other Details Edit
Based on the overall look seen in 'Reign of the Supermen' after his 'resurrection', Superman is made almost entirely from a blank body. He uses the same body that Superman Red/Blue and the Eradicator use. The only exception is his bracelets which are molded into his forearms. The figure depicts Superman after his apparent death at the hands of Doomsday, wherein he returns to battle Cyborg Superman at the side of the other Supermen. This figure is a fine representation of the returning Superman with the longer hair. His headsculpt features the softer Superman face previously seen on Eradicator and Superman Red/Blue. By this wave, the skintone is quite obviously lighter than figures from previous waves. The skin gets lighter every wave. Thus you can see a marked difference when you pose Aquaman, Wonder Woman and him together. The metal S-shield is also painted on, perhaps this is the only reason the figure would rank lower than its DC Direct counterpart, whose shield is entirely sculpted. The clean contrast and the beautiful sculpting, though, make this figure a must-have Superman version.
