Now with no way to contact their leader, Dracula, the remaining monsters were easy pickings for the GCPD.

The orange one came with the inflatable rocketship and was Flash's ship. The green one was the Ming shuttle and came in it's own box. (This one was loose.) I have also seen a yellow one on Google. All are the same so could probably be used with the inflatable.

That Superman is awesome! While I'm no fan of that story with him (Kingdom Come) the figure does indeed rock!

I love it! Especially Starman's confusion pose. VERY nice touch.

What? Oh, come on, now. What's wrong with Kingdom Come?

To me, it's the second best DC story ever told (right after Dark Knight Returns). Alex Ross' art is amazing and the story is great (especially the Superman/Shazam throw down).

Man, our tastes in comics seem to be diametrically opposed. You're not one of those "if it's not silver age, it's crap" comic guys, are you? :lol:

Hey, Kingdom Come and Dark Knight Returns are my all time favorite DC comics ever too :mrgreen:

No to mention that Thy Kingdom Come is my favorite JSA history ever. Read that, and you would want to complete the team too.

No, I simply like good comics which matter. Kingdom Come is an Elseworlds Tale... which got way more publicity than it should have. It's more hype than a good story. I don't go in for those 'The End' type stories like Marvel does and this is what this is, sort of a swan song to the DC Universe. It's always the same, Batman is in a broken body but carries on... Superman is in solitude... Wonder Woman and Superman get it on -ugh disgusted, she's Bruce's chick and everyone knows it!- It just did nothing for me.

Kingdom Come was more fluff which they tried to force into DC Canon and failed, especially with the sequel Kingdom. All it did was give us Magog who... is a character whose presence in the DC Universe would be no different if he didn't... oh wait... he's not here any more!

I like stories which have depth, meaning and impact characters for times to come. Bill Mantalo's run on Incredible Hulk ended with an impact on Banner which sent him over the edge, leading to him spending almost a year in the Cross-Roads arc which allowed John Byrne to bring him back as having discovered himself and coming to terms with his abusive father and the death of his mother. Thus being able to split himself from the Hulk in the Nutrient Bath which opened the door for Peter David to latch onto the physiological aspect of the Hulk/ Banner relationship.

Amazing Spider-Man Annual 21 was a story which changed Spider-Man forever until someone got a bug up their backside about his being a spoken for man... -ugh- Which 'Brand New Day' is an example of an AWESOME run on a comic ending in garbage. J. Michael Straczynski did wonders with that book which had damage done by the Clone Story that lasted FOR years, that book/ character never recovered until J. Michael Straczynski and he leaves an awesome run on a crap ass note!

I appreciate the Silver Age but I also like a lot of modern stuff. To name a few things...
The Kree/ Skrull War in Avengers
Secret Wars
Jim Shooter as Marvel's Editor and Chief
David Michelinie Amazing Spider-Man
Perter and MJ being married!
Peter David Incredible Hulk
Bill Mantalo and Sal Buscema Incredible Hulk
Chris Claremont X-Men
Frank Miller Daredevil
The Infinity Gauntlet (the first and only time!)
The 1970s Marvel Thanos arc in various Marvel Comics
Bob Layton Iron Man
Anything by Ron Lim
Captain Mar-Vell (1970s)

Jack Kirby Fourth World stuff
John Byrne Superman revamp
George Perez Wonder Woman
Morrison JLA
Neil Gaiman's Sandman
Garth Ennies Hellblazer
Moore Swamp Thing
Crisis on Infinite Earths
Emerald Dawn
The Dark Knight Returns (the ONLY end style story I like because it came first)
Zero Hour (Because it was fun!)
Final Night

Unity
Jim Shooter era Valiant Comics

We all have our things. I love Kingdom Come, but I'm really not a huge fan of DKR. It's a good story, but I don't place it in my top 10.

Hey..on that superman figures...did you sculpt and paint that "S" on him? And what figure did you get that head from?

I refuse to let there be a "best of" list without including Roy Thomas' All Star Squadron, America vs. the JSA, and The LAst Days of the JSA.
