Superhero Comic Books Returns To PCH

Yeah, I couldn't resist ordering the Superhero Comic Books from PCH (Publishers Clearing House):
Superhero comic books returns to PCH
Instead of a pack of trading cards like the last time, this set includes four comic books and one graphic novel. I actually don't have any of the comics pictured in the above ad but I doubt that I will get any of them. I can't wait to see what I get in this comic grab bag.

Thrift Store Find: Lego Movie Happy Meal Cup #3 With Batman

I knew that I would eventually find a Lego Movie Happy Meal cup #3 with Batman in a thrift store someday but I never thought it would be so soon after they were first released. I found one yesterday for a whopping fifty cents. The only one I got with a Happy Meal was #5 featuring Good Cop/Bad Cop. They feature a 3D flicker effect so you get different images at different angles.

The first image features a back/side view of Wyldstyle (I couldn't capture the front view of her):

The second picture features Lego Batman on the batmobile with the batsignal in the sky (not captured was the batmobile with the headlights on):

The final picture features Batman holding a batarang (he held it higher in the flicker image):

Sorry about the less that great pictures for it was rather hard to snap pictures using a flash and my room lighting is not up to par to use my cheap digital camera without it.

Goodnight Mickey Rooney

Legendary actor, Mickey Rooney, died yesterday at the age of 93. I mostly remember watching him in movies as Andy Hardy during the weekends when I was growing up. He was also the voice of Santa Claus in four Christmas TV animated/stop action specials. Here is Elvira with Mickey Rooney:

Check out Nightmare Superman from Infinite Crisis:

I hope this alternative version of the Man of Steel at least gets a one-shot special in the near future.

Thanks to Blastr's Grant Gustin's full Flash costume has finally been revealed for the following picture:
Full costume of Grant Gustin as The Flash revealed
I'm digging the classic chest logo and the lightning bolts down the side of his legs. However, his footwear appears to be a little off.

Women Wednesday: Mardi Gras at Superhero City

I finally managed to defeat the Mardi Gras raid at Superhero City that actually came out in 2013. I do like the cards that were given out as rewards since they featured some women like this Krewe of Sins card:

Yeah, I know this year's Fat Tuesday was yesterday but Mazikeen actually had her own Superhero City card last year for the Mardi Gras raid:

My favorite Mardi Gras card features Trixie:

The Flash's TV Mask

I dig the lightning bolt on The Flash's tv mask (photo courtesy of Comics Alliance):

Too bad the red is so dark but that's a minor complaint. I also think the chin guard makes sense.

The cover of Birds of Prey #28 from DC Comics features Artemis (Strix), Bluebelle (Batgirl), Warbler (Black Canary) and Eagle (Condor) aka the Wings of Truth in Gothtopia:

Obviously, Eagle is the only one able to fly while the women ride motorcycles (notice that Artemis rides with Bluebelle):

I would like to see an ongoing Gothtopia series just to see more women on motorcycles.

Superman Strawberry Candy Cane

I picked up the Superman Strawberry Candy Cane the same time I picked up the Batman Blue Raspberry candy cane. It too was forty cents and a leftover from the Christmas season. The Man of Steel is wearing his red trunks. His right fist continues to the side of the box.

The back also has a cool holiday decoration that can be cut out
Back of the Superman Strawberry Candy Cane box
The actual wrapper is clear with the familiar red and yellow S shield. Superman is written underneath that in red and yellow.

Batman Blue Raspberry Candy Cane

I actually picked up the Batman Blue Raspberry Candy Cane a few weeks ago when the Christmas merchandise was still on clearance. Originally, it was a dollar but I got it for forty cents. Batman is featured in his classic blue and gray costume. His right hand (our left) is actually on the side of the box.

The back has a cool holiday decoration that can be cut out:

The candy cane is wrapped in clear cellophane with the classic yellow oval bat symbol and Batman written in red.

Superman Chained Birthday Card 2014

My forty-ninth birthday was on Thursday, February 13th and I received a Superman chained birthday card from my mother and younger sister. The card cost $3.34 at the local Walmart and was produced by Hallmark. I actually picked it out myself since they didn't have very many superhero birthday cards to choose from (the other one was a lame Spider-Man birthday card). Superman is wearing his classic costume instead of the New 52 version. The front of the Superman chained birthday card features the upper part of him wearing chains:

The inside front features the a full figure of the Man of Steel in chains with pull tabs from the chin down to reveal a hidden picture while the opposite side features the text:

Here is what the revealed picture looks like along with the right side pull tabs open:

Here is the same picture looks like along with the left side pull tabs open:

The top of the back features Superman flying along with the S shield almost in the center:

The envelope is the same as the one I got last year with the retro Marvel Comics birthday card:

I love the fact that the mermaids include a blonde, a brunette and a redhead:

King Triton really doesn't stand a chance against the three beautiful mermaids:

So far, I have six Triton's Daughters cards and one King Triton card.

Even though Superhero City is sunsetting, they are still celebrating Valentine's Day by offering a free card. Here is the banner for the offer:

This year's special Valentine's Day card is Distracting Defense and the masked lady sitting on the heart-shaped love seat is very distracting:

Shame that she isn't wearing bra and panties with the Superhero City logo.

Countdown To Valentine's Day Minus One: Women of DC Comics Lace String Bikini Panties

Today is my forty-ninth birthday so I thought I would post something that I like seeing my girlfriends wearing. Yes, I'm not married and not currently seeing anyone seriously. The Women of DC Comics lace string bikini panties are available with Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Woman logos:
I can't really say which one is my favorite for I like to give them all to those special ladies in my life for Valentine's Day. They don't always model them for me mind you but it's the thought that counts.
