Mattel's 6-inch line based on DC Comics properties is a constantly growing collection.

Comics (and animated properties) lineEdit

The Batman toyline was the first to be released. It offered sculpts by the Four Horsemen Studios and featured heroes and villains from the Batman pool of characters.

DC SuperheroesEdit

The DC Superheroes toyline served as a catch-all line for all DC properties beginning 2006. However, its S3:Select Sculpt series is the best-known incarnation. The series alternated featuring Superman and Batman, and presented figures with added articulation.

DC Universe ClassicsEdit

When the DC Superheroes line was rebranded into DC Universe, another catch-all term for all of DC properties, the 6-inch line became known as DC Universe Classics. The line extended from simply featuring Batman and Superman characters to having a virtually unlimited pool of DC Comics characters.

Superman/Batman Public EnemiesEdit
