Do you still have any of them?

Did you own any DC Super Powers toys from back in the 80s? Still have any of them?

Which toy line do you think was cooler?

I wasn't buying toys then. Who's the white guy? Ice Man?(unlikely) Human Torch?

EDIT-Hey! It was Ice Man! He wasn't in Secret Wars! Neither was Daredevil. What's going on here?

I didn't read either story in their own time but I did see the Super Friends/Super Powers show. I had some Super Powers toys ... Lex Luthor with the green armor that glowed in the dark, Flash, Hawkman with mace, Red Tornado with spinny leg action.

Nor was Falcon! I had the original eight figures, but liked the Super Powers line MUCH better. SP was made of better plastic and had more articulation. They were also closer to their comicbook counterparts.

What was it? Issue 10 before Doom wore that weird armor they made the toy out of?

I never saw any more than the original eight figures in any stores in St. Louis, while I saw Super Powers at several different ones. \:\)

Doomgot the new armor after he challenged the Beyonder, which was a great Doom moment.
I never collected those toys but I have noticed that my sons DC Imaginext toys are much better than the Marvel Super Hero Squad toys so I wonder if that's a regular thing.
