Rounding out the DC Direct New Krypton series I've been showing you is Mon-El! He came from Mike's Comics & Stuff in Anaheim, California. Mike's got the best price on these, and his personal service is top-notch! Like Superman from this series, Mon-El has swivel joints in his biceps, as well as his wrists and neck. But instead of swivel joints at the tops of his boots, there is one at the Daxamites' waist.
Mon-El is a DC character from the planet Daxam with powers similar to Superman, who sometimes fills in for the Man of Steel. Lar Gand was an explorer who had landed on Krypton, but was sent to Earth upon Jor-El's warning of the planet's impending doom. The character was retconned more that twice, this version of his red and blue costume featuring a Superman S-Shield over his left chest, like that of the Bronze-Age Supergirl. Visit his extensive & detailed history at MajorSpoilers.Com! This is a fun character I knew nothing about :)
My only gripe about these New Krypton Series figures is the capes- the sculpt from the back isn't the best. They look great from the front though, and that's what really counts. They are beautifully sculpted and painted- Superman & Superwoman are particularly well done! I had a ball photographing this set!
