Lego Super Heroes
Lego and DC Comics came together in 2006 with Batman Lego sets and Marvel teamed together with Lego in 2003 with Spider-Man. Even though both themes were very successful they were discontinued.
In July 2011 Lego announced they would be launching new line of Lego sets based on DC comics and Marvel comics super heroes, called Lego Super Heroes. You can check out the official site here.
The Lego Super Heroes are based on all characters from both Marvel and DC properties.
DC Comics characters include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and villains Joker, Bane, Harley Quinn and Lex Luthor.
The theme can access the entire DC Universe of super heroes including the “Big three” trinity of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman as well as minor characters like Green Lantern, Aquaman, Flash and other members of the Justice League of America.
With Marvel the licence is restricted to Spider-Man, The X-Men (Wolverine, Professor X, Cyclops, Phoenix, Ice Man) and The Avengers (Hulk, Thor, Ironman, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America).
