Darkseid: 2nd Series 23-Back (Superman Cape Offer)
Kenner debuted Darkseid, the major 2nd series villain, on two confirmed different card styles for the 2nd series action figure assortment. Two additional possibilities exist for Darkseid in the form of the "Free Clark Kent Offer" card types, however those two remain unconfirmed to date. One of the two confirmed packaging styles, shown above, is the 23-back card containing the "Superman Cape Offer". A mere $1.50 and three proof-of-purchases landed young Super Powers fans a snazzy plastic Superman cape via this mail-away promotion. The Superman cape promotion was run both in the US by Kenner and Canada by Kenner Canada. To date nine of the twelve 1st series figures and ten of the eleven 2nd series figures have been documented on the 23-back Superman Cape Offer cardback. Steppenwolf represents the lone 2nd series figure never released on this cardback.
