DC’s 2nd (or 3rd) Tier

I’ve always been someone who roots for the underdog. 

Honestly, that’s why I liked Marvel over DC. The characters, even the top tier, were flawed. What’s wrong with Superman? Some dumb rock? C’mon. 

But under that first tier of DC characters is where it actually gets interesting. The Super-Powers post below is a great reflection of that – so many characters that the average person doesn’t know. And one of my favorites was always Red Tornado.

Long story short, he’s an android / robot… sorta. Anyways, the mid-80’s series is great. I wish I could find some better images of the covers (one below, but all of them are sweet), but this is a pretty cool ad. Remember seeing it and being drawn in. 

I loved a miniseries that starts with a cover of Superman dressing down this dude with the rest of the JLA in the background. I can’t speak for the most recent series, but I’ve heard good things. And it’s cheap…

And, even though I am partial to the old Kenner Super Powers collection, this DCU Classic Wave figure is pretty hot. DC, while I’ve got your attention, I want a life size bust of Guy Gardner with the bowl cut. Guaranteed seller.
