Are you a Marvel guy? Or DC? The age old question asked to many comic book collectors and super hero fanatics. If you asked me this question now, my answer would be an easy “Make mine Marvel!” For as long as I can remember reading comics, I was always into marvel comics. Sure I read an occasional Batman issue here and there, but growing up, my comic stack was basically composed of Captain America and the Avengers.

Anyway, back to the whole point of this blog, toys. I never really collected super hero toys when I was younger. Even if they were infinitely better than their Marvel counterparts, I never cared for the Super Powers line of the 80’s. When I finally caved a few years ago and started collecting Marvel Universe, I never thought twice about dipping into the DC universe. First because DC’s main action figure toyline, DC Universe was composed of 6” figures…something I never really had any interest in collecting. Second because their 3.75 line wasn’t very good. And third and most importantly, I still didn’t read any DC comics.

A few months later I finished my collection (for now ha ha). Although I did break my 2 rules a little. I ended up not sticking to just the iconic Leaguers (Bats, Supes, Flash, Wonder Woman, GL & Aquaman) but getting some additional but still important & memorable members (Green Arrow, Black Canary, Hawkman & woman etc). And I also caved and spent extra on hard to find characters. But for the most part I’d like to think I practiced good self-control with this collection. And as for my display idea….well I’ll let the picture speak for itself J
