Lex Luthor



  

General Mills Juguetes, South America (GMJ S.A.), formerly known as PBP, distributed Super Powers action figures in Spain under the "Super Poderes" logo. Unlike some of their international counterparts, these figures were not packaged with a mini-comic nor poster premium. Lex Luthor, as shown above, is the highlight of this entry, however the both Aquman and Lex Luthor carded images and text below serve to illustrate interesting variations for the "Super Poderes" packaging.

  

Two card styles exist on this Super Poderes packaging with differences existing on both the cardfronts and cardbacks. The two photos shown above illustrate the card front differences. Notice Lex Luthor's packaging features a diagonal printed banner spanning the upper left corner containing "Figura Accionable" text, while the other style completely lacks this banner. Text content and placement differences also exist on the lower packaging.

  

The rear packaging differences are the most striking. Aquaman's cardback more closely resembles that of the domestic Kenner layout, while the other style (shown on Lex Luthor)completely mimics that of the European trilingual cardbacks like the one shown here.

Both card styles exhibit the same unique punch (peg hanger hole) style, creating yet another distinguishing characteristic. The Super Poderes figures are extremely difficult to locate in carded form making them very special additions to a Super Powers collection.
