Blue Beetle (Justice League International)

The Blue Beetle is the first figure to appear on the Wave 7 list, and this is a very deep cut in terms of the Super Powers line, as he never appeared in the vintage Kenner line. The Blue Beetle is a very interesting character and they have reused the standard issue buck for this one.

According to Justice League International | Blue Beetle Wiki | Fandom:

Justice League International is a group of DC Comics superheroes, such as the Blue Beetle, the Green Lantern, Batman and the Martian Manhunter. The name Justice League is a vague term, thus this rentition was titled Justice League International as it’s operations were more widespread and with a more ethnically diverse set of members. The JLI is also known for it’s light-hearted and comedic feel, which gave it a unique value. One significant difference in this team is the absence of some more famous members like Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and the Hal Jordan version of the Green Lantern.

Justice League International, was founded by businessman Maxwell Lord, and it had both Jaime Reyes and Ted Kord, and it was there Kord met Booster Gold, and it was formed as the Justice League after the crisis involving Darkseid’s and his minion G. Gordon Godfrey’s brainwashing of the public people and was renamed the Justice League International in 1987.

Blue Beetle’s Bug Ship

There are also 2 vehicles on this list! The first of which is Blue Beetle’s Bug ship. Given that the Blue Beetle was announced in this wave, then he needs his vehicle to get around in. This will be yet another flying vehicle for the McFarlane Super Powers line. This is a super fun vehicle, both with it’s look and functionality and action features! It includes pop open rear wings, and a working grappling hook!

The box sports that classic Super Powers logos, colors and action feature call outs!

Here you can see how the wings open by pressing the button on the back of the Bug ship. There are seats for 2 figures with cool control panels at each and a faux hatch in the back compartment area.

According to Blue Beetle’s Bug | DC Database | Fandom:

Kord designed and built the bug when he was president of Kord Omniversal Research and Development. It was originally constructed from failed experiments and old parts of automobiles and later improved with Ted’s new inventions.

After joining the JLI, Kilowog added other improvements that made the Bug far beyond its previous capabilities in terms of technology. Some time later, this bug was destroyed by Doomsday in his first foray against the Justice League.

Before retiring from the super-heroic life, Ted built two more versions called Mark I and Mark II. The Mark II was destroyed during Countdown to Final Crisis, while the Mark I was altered by Checkmate to cover up Ted Kord’s death.

Brainiac (First Appearance)

Based on the look of Brainiac from the comic books this green skinned version of Brainiac is considered his first appearance look. This version of Brainiac is very different than the robotic vac metal version that was originally released for the vintage Kenner Super Powers line. So this is the green skinned first appearance version as pictured below.

Here we can see the figure, and you can see that they did an excellent job at his paint apps! He really looks like a classic Super Powers figure. His colors will really stand out in the Skull Ship as you will see in the images further below.

According to: Brainiac (character) – Wikipedia:

Brainiac is a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino, and debuted in Action Comics #242 (July 1958). He has since endured as one of Superman and the Justice League‘s greatest enemies. The character’s name is a portmanteau of the words brain and maniac.

In his comic book appearances, Brainiac is commonly depicted as a superintelligent android or cyborg from the planet Colu who is obsessed with collecting all knowledge in the known universe. He travels the galaxy and shrinks cities to bottle size for preservation on his skull-shaped spaceship before destroying their source planets, believing the knowledge he acquires to be most valuable if he alone possesses it. Among these shrunken cities is Kandor, the capital of Superman’s home planet Krypton, and Brainiac is even responsible for Krypton’s destruction in some continuities. His attempts to do the same to Earth have brought him into repeated conflict with Superman and the Justice League. Though stories often end in Brainiac’s apparent destruction, the character’s artificial consciousness is resurrected in new physical forms, some robotic and others more organic-based in appearance.

Brainiac has been adapted in various media incarnations, having been portrayed in live-action by James Marsters in Smallville and Blake Ritson in KryptonCorey BurtonJohn NobleJeffrey Combs, and others have provided the character’s voice in animation and video games.

Brainiac (character) – Wikipedia

You can see below the 1984 original release from the vintage Super Powers line. It doesn’t surprise me that McFarlane is starting with the more obscure version of Brainiac rather than his original Kenner version.

Brainiac Skull Ship

The second vehicle named in this wave is the Brainiac Skull Ship. This is a classic vehicle for Brainiac and if they release the Kenner Classic Brainiac in the future, he can have something to roll in as well! Looking like a silver skull with tentacles, this is yet another flying vehicle. Here we can see the back of the box, which reads ” Brainiac’s Hi-Tech Space Craft. It also says that “Legs move when rolled”. It seats one figure, which of course should be Brainiac.

Here we get to see the Skull Ship out of the package. The design is very reminiscent of the vintage Super Powers vac metal Brainiac figure.

Here you can see how you can place Brainiac piloting the Skull Ship. He stands inside on a foot peg.

According to Brainiac’s Skull Ship | Superman Wiki | Fandom:

Brainiac’s Skull Ship (sometimes called his Head-Ship) is an interstellar warship commanded by Brainiac. In fact, the ship can be considered an extension of Brainiac’s body, as it’s hooked directly into his brain. There have been many variations of the Skull Ship, although they mostly seem to share the form of a humanoid skull with tentacles.

A Post-Crisis version first appeared in the “Panic in the Sky” storyline. This version lacks the tentacles. According to Brainiac, it came to him “in a dream.”

Superman (Gold Edition 40th Anniversary)

Superman was made in a gold edition as part of the DC Classic Line on a Super Powers style card back in 2014. This one was released for the 30th Anniversary of the original Kenner line. It was a gold outfitted repaint version of the DC Classics first release of Superman. This is an easy repaint of the 2 previous versions of Superman already released for the McFarlane Super Powers line. Now we are coming up to the 40th anniversary for the Kenner Superman, so this will be a wonderful homage to that. You can also see the special 40th Anniversary logo at the top of the card back, which makes this one a figure I wanted to keep on card!

Here we get a close up of the figure. Being that this is a hard to get figure and a 40th Anniversary figure, I decided to keep him on card. But we do have all the official images of him below for your viewing pleasure.

Batman (Manga version)

This is yet another more deep cut variant of Batman. On this version of Batman, they reused the more broad chested Batman Hush buck, this one is a grey version of The Dark Knight. I really love the illustration on this Batman, that I had to get an extra to keep carded!

I love his color scheme, with the greys and yellow, it really works! Also he has some nice details with the white eyebrows and white trim around his gloves, belt and boots. The quality of his cape is vastly improved and a very nice soft cloth material.

Sinestro (Sinestro Corps Wars)

Sinestro was previously announced as part of Wave 6, but that was the Superfriends version. This time around, in classic McFarlane fashion, they are doing a repaint right away in his comic appearance Sinestro Corps Wars color way! Recently done in McFarlane’s Muliverse line, Sinestro in his Corps Wars color way has pink skin and a yellow and black outfit, and now we are getting him for the Super Powers line as shown below.

According to Sinestro Corps War – Wikipedia:

Sinestro Corps War” is an American comic book crossover event published by DC Comics in its Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps titles. Written by Geoff Johns and Dave Gibbons and drawn by Ivan ReisPatrick Gleason, and Ethan Van Sciver, the 11-part saga was originally published between June and December 2007. In addition to the main storyline, four supplemental “Tales of the Sinestro Corps” one-shot specials and a Blue Beetle tie-in issue were concurrently released.

The story centers on the Green Lanterns of Earth—Hal JordanKyle RaynerJohn Stewart and Guy Gardner—and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps as they fight an interstellar war against the Sinestro Corps, an army led by the former Green Lantern Sinestro who are armed with yellow power rings and seek a universe ruled through fear. A 1986 Alan Moore “Tales of the Green Lantern Corps” story was the thematic basis of the storyline. Many characters were changed, killed off, or re-introduced as a result of the event.

Critical and fan reception to “Sinestro Corps War” was highly positive. Many reviewers ranked it among the top comic books of the year and the storyline’s first issue garnered a 2008 Eisner Award nomination for Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team. The storyline was also a financial success, and several issues underwent multiple printings. “Sinestro Corps War” is the second part of a trilogy in the Green Lantern storyline, preceded by the 2005 miniseries Green Lantern: Rebirth. The conclusion of “Sinestro Corps War” sets up the third and final part of the trilogy, Blackest Night, which was published in 2009.

Kilowog (Tales of Green Lantern Corps)

This is a very deep cut character and glad to see that we are getting a Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern in Wave 6 first! The Primary Trainer of the Green Lantern Corp, Kilowog was a scientist who would train fellow Green Lantern Corps. He is a big boy, so they are using a new buck for this one! This is another one I decided to keep carded, so we have all the official images for you below, so you can see this chonky boy from all angles!

According to Kilowog – Wikipedia:

A towering alien with a brutish cross of porcine and bull-doggish appearance, Kilowog is renowned throughout the Green Lantern Corps as the primary trainer of the Corps’ newest recruits.The Guardians of the Universe recruited Kilowog, a gifted genetic scientist, from the planet Bolovax Vik, located in Space Sector 674. Kilowog was trained by Lantern Ermey (reference to Gunnery SergeantR. Lee Ermey), who would often use the word “poozer”, which means “useless rookie” (a word Kilowog would later adopt, albeit in a friendlier way). In the middle of a particularly arduous training session, Ermey had Kilowog and his fellow rookies help stop an attack on a group of Lanterns, one of whom was the future renegade Sinestro. Ermey, fatally wounded in battle, commended Kilowog on his abilities, telling him that he had the makings of a great leader.[4] In addition to serving with distinction as the Green Lantern of that sector, Kilowog also began to spend extensive periods of time on the Green Lantern Corps’ home planet of Oa instructing new recruits on how to handle and best utilize their power rings. In this capacity, Kilowog acted as the first trainer to a young Hal Jordan, the ring-recruited successor to the slain Abin Sur of Ungara, the Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814. Kilowog and his new recruit helped the Guardians confront Abin Sur’s murderer, the hive mind interstellar malefactor known as Legion.
