Included in the same wave as the '89 Batman is General Zod. Because, of course he is. But hey, it's Zod, so I picked it up. I still wish it was a six inch figure instead. Anyway, it's pretty decent looking. Unlike the Batman figure, he gets shoulder swivels, but loses the thigh swivels. For an accessory, he gets a bent machine gun. It's been a while since I last watched Superman II, but I'm assuming one of the Kryptonians bends it in a display of yellow sun strength. For once, nobody can complain if the packaging has warped the accessory, because it's not meant to be straight. Genius marketing from Mattel! Hopefully a Christopher Reeve Superman figure isn't far behind.
