Superhero


India

Carded Figure

Reverse side of Cardback


Figure Description

Superhero was an exclusive figure released only in India by the Funskool toy company in 1992.

His resemblance to a certain famous character from DC Comics is fairly blatant. Even the card logo has the word "Superhero" in Superman-like text. The front of the card has no mention of G.I.Joe at all and only has a picture of Superman flying on a black background. However, on the back of the card is the "G.I.Joe - International Heroes" logo, pictures of other figures available, and a promotional write-up about the introduction of G.I.Joe figures in India.


Accessories:

Other than the flimsy red cape, Superhero came with no accessories (as if he needed accessories, he's SUPERMAN!).


Body Construction:

The figure is made up of the repainted head of Flash (1982), the repainted waist of Zandar (1986), and the repainted body of Torpedo (1983).
