Reign of the Supermen #223: Elastic Superman

Source: Mego Super 8 Elastic Heroes (1979)
Type: ToyBased on Kenner's Stretch Armstrong, Mego created its own line of Elastic Heroes that, yes, included a Plastic Man. When did Superman ever have elastic powers? Well, why not find yourself a chunk of red rock or something and play out your very own Silver Age fantasy? That's if you can even FIND one of these anymore. And even if you could, the stretchable rubber will have become brittle. There are only half a dozen of these guys left near anything resembling mint condition, and even those rarely have the removable cape, the cape's "S" sticker or the box itself.
And Superman was one of the most produced in the line (which included, in addition to Plastic Man and Batman, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Casper, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck)!

As we speak, the SFX Wishlist (post in the forum and stand a fair chance of getting in the magazine a couple months later) is asking for what readers want from Superman: The Man Of Steel.

Your chance to get your name in small type in Britain's biggest geekmag!

Well, look pleased!

Wow, hard one.

Well, if it's anything like the Superman Animated Series pilot, that's be great.

If it's anything like the previous films, that would be not so great.
