Edit:
Found this weird figure in a collection I bought. It was in bad shape... no markings at all... just curious what it was.

Was trying to figure out what it was. Ended up figuring out it's some Secret Wars knockoff from the mid 80s called "Action Heroes"

Oddly mine has some kind of plastic cape on instead of the purple one from the second link. Maybe it's a cape from a different figure. Don't know...

Also, it looks like these came with some kind of cycle. In the same collection I found this weird vehicle that also had no markings. Wondering if they go together:

Let me know if anyone can identify the vehicle. Otherwise I'll assume they go together.

The cape is off a Batman figure. I think one of Hasbro's Legends of the Dark Knight figure. I don't know about the vehicle. I didn't see it listed in the bootleg or foreign sections of the Secret Wars archive.

The vehicle looks like a stripped down and missing pieces MOTU vehicle.
