What's up with the black / grey Batman in this auction? Is it a custom job? I've never seen a Super Powers Batman like that.
The black Batman above is not a custom toy: http://www.runboard.com/bkennersuperpowers.f3.t28272
The Batman in the original post is Black and Grey. Not completely black like the one you replied about. I do think that the Black and Grey one is a custom job. The closer I looked at it I could see some ble paint where the black paint had chippped off.

Also sorry for bumping this - but I have a question.
I don't know if I translated correctly but are you in doubt if Luthor and Green Lantern were available in Brazil?
If so Estrela offered both figures. GL was a hell of a toy. It included the lantern where he recharges his power.
Luthor is also so real he's just two steps away from me. I even have his Minicomic:
The sad story is: In wave 2 Estrela stopped to print "ESTRELA S./A." on the figures' back.
Seems they just borrowed Kenner's molds (since Luthor was released here in 1988 and there is a 1984 license).
I never saw a SP figure from Kenner but I guess the lack of the "Estrela" mark makes harder to distinguish some American and Brazilian Super Powers:
Maybe you could distinguish analyzing details like the colors. Judging by online images (thanks Google!) seems that Luthor's American armor is darker than the Brazilian one.
Brazilian symbol on his chest also seems to use a much darker tone of red.
