DC Comics Release Variant Covers To Celebrate 40th Anniversary Of The Kenner “DC Super Powers” Action Figure Line

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Kenner “DC Super Powers” action figures line, DC are releasing eight variant covers this August which feature art by the original 1980’s “Super Powers” Product Artist, Alex Saviuk and Jason Geyer.

There will be eight brand new comic book variant covers which are set to showcase what an unreleased wave of DC action figures would have looked like if the Kenner line of “DC Super Powers” toys from 1984-1986 had continued. There are variant covers for Batman #151 (07/08), Gotham City Sirens #1 (07/08), Green Lantern: War Journal #12 (21/08), Nightwing #117 (21/08), Power Girl #12 (28/08), Superman #17 (21/08), The Flash #12 (28/08), and Titans #14 (21/08)! Please note that these are only images of toys on the front and the back of these issues. Here’s a look at the covers:

Each of the covers are also packed with tons of Easter eggs and details. To re-create the look and feel of the original Kenner Super Powers packaging, original 1980s Super Powers product artist Alex Saviuk has returned to deliver the spot illustrations for each new variant cover. Saviuk was a character artist for the Kenner packaging from ’84 to ’86 and drew many of the minicomics that were included with each figure. The new DC Super Powers variant covers are designed and sculpted by one of the leading historians of the original Kenner Super Powers toy line and the cofounder of Raving Toy Maniac and Action Figure Insider, Jason Geyer, who is a toy designer himself.
