    Cool pic. Neat story. I still have to pic up the Red Son Batman and Pres. Supes that were released this week.

    I've got those two on hold for me. Already got the first two.

    Sometime in the spring they are going to release a Green Lantern from that story too in the elseworlds line.

    DC started labeling anything out of continuity(sp?) elseworlds. Like in the latest set there is a Batman by Gaslight, but that wasn't really labeled Elseworlds when it came out.

    I really don't know of anything recent off the top of my head.

    Infinite Crisis probably should have been elseworlds.... yeesh

    Civil War kicks IC ass.

    Speaking of GL, I don't like this as much as the Red Son, I was just goofing off.

    That was the first Elseworlds title. The reprint says will most likely have the logo on it.

    Cool GL Superman :thumb

    Gotham By Gaslight is still one of the best Elseworlds ever, even if it wasn't originally labeled as such. I have yet to see one of those Gotham By Gaslight Batman figures.

    My local comic shop has one, its pretty cool. I like going there to get cool toys that you can't find at wal-mart or target. If they did sell them there it would be cheaper, but I would rather support my local shop.

    Yeah I want to get Pres Superman too, but I want Gotham by Gaslight Batman more then the Red Son one.

    I still think at least the look of Red Son Superman(the president one anyway) had to be based on one of the episodes from the Superboy series. The look is just too simular. I'l still call the figure the same name from that show: the Sovreign. I also noticed that the Superboy Prime from the Crisis series look a lot like the first actor on that show, but that's another topic.

    I do think both of the pic look good. Wouldn't either of the alternate universe episodes, either A Brave New Metropolis, or A Better World, be close to what Red Son is or is that story very different? I haven't read it, but for what i've heard about it sounds like it.
