Token Totin’ Thursday: SUPERMAN set edition

Posted on November 3, 2011


Continuing the photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens, today we’re making up for some lost time. Usually, when a new set comes out, I’ll try to post an extra-sized Token Totin’ Tuesday/Thursday/whenever  for as many of the new qualifying characters as possible. But my A) predetermined theme for October and B) not getting to see any of the new set for half the month fouled up that plan.

Better late than never, though, right?

First up is the self-proclaimed head of Metropolis and his Amazon bodyguards, Lex Luthor (Superman 015), Mercy Graves (Superman 014) and Hope Taya (Superman 030):

Both gals hold it under their ponytails. Wedge it between Lex's jaw and collar.

Next are three characters who’ve acted as heroes — sort of — but become villains — sort of: Cyborg Superman (Superman 034), Black Adam (Superman 054) and Magog (Superman 035)

On either end, Cyborg Supes and KC Magog hold it really easily in their arms. In the center, it's Black Adam's lightning that does the lifting.

Not to be outdone, the ladies can tote huge weights like they’re just handbags. Behold Lois Lane: Superwoman (Superman 009), Lucy Lane: Superwoman (Superman 026) and Supergirl (Superman 010):

Lois holds under her cape as shown, Lucy under HER cape, and Supergirl either under her cape (sort of) or between her hair and cape.

And, of course, the actual Men of Steel can hold their tokens, right? Steel (Superman 018) and Superman (Superman 001):

Steel holds it under his hammer and Superman can...just...BARELY...hold it between his arm and cape.
