#73: Superman/Batman: Vengeance Bizarro

As I've mentioned before, Bizarro is one of my favorite DC characters. For whatever reason, I decided that I should pick up this version of him, which is based on the artwork of Ed McGuinness. Thanks to the magic of Ebay, I was able to find it for less (even after shipping!) than I would have paid at a comic shop. This is also my first DC Direct figure. They basically make figures that are more collectibles than toys, so there is some sacrifice in articulation, but they look nice. And this Bizarro does look nice. It captures McGuinness's artwork pretty well, including the weird short cape. I love the insane grin on his face. As all Bizarro figures should, this one includes the "Bizarro #1" bling. Unfortunately, the string seems a little short for Bizarro's massive neck, so it doesn't sit against his chest as well as I would like. That's really my only complaint about this figure, because otherwise it is pretty great, and a very cool addition to the ranks of my Bizarro corps.


  1. That is a great one - and I'm particularly fond of the Batzarro from the same series.

  2. I am kind of thinking about getting the Batzarro. I like the chains!
