Lego Super Heroes


Lego Super Heroes is a theme and product range of the Lego construction toy, introduced in 2011. The line features both DC Comics and Marvel Comics characters. The DC Comics part of the line was launched first, being released in late 2011. The Marvel Comics part of the line was launched on April 10, 2012,[1] to be featured alongside the 2012 film The Avengers.

Sets

The first wave of sets released included nine sets from the DC Universe line. The largest of the sets was "Arkham Asylum Breakout" which included 1619 pieces and eight minifigures. In addition to the first release two polybag sets have been released under the DC Universe line, "Batman jetski" and "Batmobile" as promotions. Lego have also announced nine sets are to be released later in 2012 under the Marvel Universe line.[2]

Prior to the first wave of sets Lego had given away five different minifigure promotional sets at comic conventions in the United States. At the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con a Green Lantern minifigure and a Batman minifigure were given away to raffle winners and at the 2011 New York Comic Con the minifigures of Green Lantern, Batman and Superman were given away at the DC Comics booth.[3] In July 2012 4 more exclusive figures were given at New York Comic Con to raffle winners - Shazam!, Phoenix, Bizarro and Symbiote Spider-Man. In July 2013, four more figures - Green Arrow, Black Man of Steel suit Superman, Spiderwoman and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suit Spider Man were released at NYCC.

Lego have also released an accompanying magnet set under the Super Heroes theme. It is a three piece magnet set consisting of the Batman, Robin and The Joker minifigures each attached to a magnetized brick.[4]

Video games

DC

A video game based on the DC Lego Super Heroes half of the line, titled Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released in the summer of 2012 as a sequel to Lego Batman: The Video Game. The game was released on personal computer, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, Wii and Xbox 360.[25]

Marvel

Originally, an Lego Avengers game was set to be made, but the developers felt that just being able to play as the Avengers was not enough, and thus decided to add other Marvel heroes.[26] Warner Bros. has announced that there will be another LEGO game, from the same developers of DC Super Heroes based on the Marvel-inspired toyline. Confirmed characters include Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Galactus.[27]
