|Figure (and number):||Wave 2 Figure 4|
|First Released||DCUC wave 2|
|Points of Articulation:||23|
Superman's awesome abilities were sapped completely by the star-consuming sun-eater! An attempt to reinstate his superpowers transformed the Man of Steel into two energy beings: the rational Superman Blue and the hotheaded Superman Red! Eventually, the equal-but-opposite Supermen were merged following a battle with the Millennium Giants. As the single Superman absorbed the rays of Earth's yellow sun, he was restored to his superpowered-self.
Other Details Edit
Anchoring the second wave of DC Universe Classic figures are two versions of Superman. This time we have him as the electric Superman. First seen in Superman Red Superman Blue #1, this version of Superman appeared after Cyborg Superman and the Toyman join forces in an attempt to destroy Superman's energy form, but instead Superman is split into the aggressive Superman Red and the calmer Superman Blue. This new Superman is very close in headsculpt and body sculpt (without the costume detail) to the other DCSH Superman figures previously released. The figure is packaged with two detachable ‘electric aura’ attachments which go on the arms. They can be placed anywhere in the arm or in the body, though it’s recommended you massage them inwards to make them tighter before applying. A third attachment is attached to his back, which seems to not be meant to be taken out, but it can come off with a bit of a tug. This piece can still be attached later on just like any regular attachment due to the peg hole in the back. It is interesting to note that the headsculpt on Superman Red perfectly sets him apart from his other self, Superman Blue, giving each figure more than just a color-change as a distinction, but making them separate characters as well.
