Like Sinestro in my last post, this is another action figure based on the artwork of Alex Ross. In the Kingdom Come story arc, this older Superman (from Earth 22) is a much stronger yet alienated version of the big blue boyscout, unable to find any decency in a future world of lawlessness. I have this book on the list to read in the coming months- sounds very interesting. As I've said before, coming back into reading comics after being away for almost two decades, I'm really behind on some reading that many of you might feel is old news. I hope I'm not boring you too much, because to me it's all very exciting!
Kingdom Come Superman is 7" tall, bigger than your Mattel DCUCs, and even some DC Direct figures. As I've said before, DC Direct's oft decried scale issues are of little concern to me- I appreciate these on an individual basis, and Supes here is a beauty! Let's compare him to some other Superman figures I have:
*with DC Direct New Krypton Superman...
*with Mattel Wave 11 DCUC Superman, DC Direct 13" Deluxe Collector Edition Classic Superman, & Mattel 8" Retro-Action Superman!
... and no, that isn't all the Superman figures I have! Those were (laughs) just a few with reach :D This is the Super-DuperToyBox, after all. Maybe I'll get them all together for a photo some day in the future- if you want to see the others, just search under the "Superman" tag at the right side of the blog.
Thanks for reading, I really appreciate it! Next up: photos/report from the Cullen Bunn comic book signing I attended tonight!
