The First Kyle Rayner Green Lantern Figure That Doesn’t Suck

They’ve finally managed to produce a Kyle Rayner Green Lantern action figure that doesn’t suck.  Check it out. Admittedly, this figure is more muscle-bound than Kyle truly is.  Y’know what?  It doesn’t matter, this figure just looks awesome!  The previous Kyle figures have been very disappointing.  Click here to see a few of the previous […]

Captain Marvel, The Last Good Dead Superhero
