A new Super Powers colored Superman figure from DC Universe Classics has hit Ebay. This is obviously a Superman that was “found” in a factory in China. No official word on when this figure will be released, but the auction lists it as a “Secret Origins” figure. I’d love for this figure to come in a two pack with a new Clark Kent figure.

I really like the colors on this one, though I have to wonder if we really need yet another regular release of Superman. It would have been nice to at least get a new head sculpt. Should be interesting to see if and when this figure hits retail. I’m sure more details will be coming shortly. Needless to say, this guy looks pretty sweet.

    Personally I use the DCUC 4 Mullet Superman for my display (as that is the Superman I grew up with for most of the 90s) but I always welcome Superman in a different color scheme, since he was colored and penciled differently by so many people.

    With that said, I like the look of this one for the uniform colors, his paint scheme for the skin needs to be changed because right now, that's the only flaw with the figure I can see. Something a little brighter, preferably the new flesh colors they used on the Movie Masters Bruce Wayne.

    tru exclusive #4

  • I'm hearing grumbles that it could end up as that, but we'll have to see.

  • Brighter? Hmm… I don't want darker skin, but I'm not sold on brighter either. Though it might look a little different up close.

    I would swap this Super Powers body with the Public Enemies head to get a more "classic" looking Superman. Square jaw, shorter haircut. I'm not sure if the face and hands skin color would match, though. I sure hope so!

  • Yeah I think the Public Enemies one has sort of a darker red tan color about him, but it might be a reasonable swap.

    Maybe this is yet another TRU exclusive repaint. Personally, I could always use another Superman for my collection, and I really like the lighter blue to give him that 80's Super Powers feel.

    Maybe this is the rumored lighter color 2pack Superman with him and classic colors Bizarro?

    I’m actually the guy that bought this. I put the cape of a John Byrne cape on him (the one from the Superman gift set) and swapped out the nasty head that came with him. I’ve managed to snag 3 in total over the years.
