About this title

Synopsis:

Celebrate 75 years of DC Comics with an obsessive Fandex Deluxe: a supersized deck of 75 iconic heroes and villains whose power over the popular imagination has never been stronger (think The Dark Knight, last summer's $1 billion blockbuster). The gang’s all here: Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, Justice League of America, the Flash. So are their nemeses—the Joker, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Lex Luthor, Cheetah, Brainiac, Poison Ivy, Deathstroke. Meticulously researched, with layers of information covering origins, biography, back-stories, affiliations, motivations, weaknesses, and fascinating trivia, the deck adds up to an insider’s history of the DC Universe. And what better way to present it than in the format with super powers—Fandex and its die-cut cards perfectly capture the characters in one dynamic pose after another, with the art taken straight from the pages of the original comics.

From the Back Cover:

Bringing the world of DC Comics to your fingertips, Fandex celebrates Super Heroes and Villains and their larger-than-life stories in a deluxe edition of 75 individually die-cut, full-color cards.

Meet the young Bruce Wayne, whose inspiration for Batman came crashing through a window. Brainiac with a “twelfth level” intellect, who literally bottled civilizations. Hawkman and Hawkgirl, subjected to cycle after cycle of death and reincarnation after their souls bonded in Ancient Egypt. The vapid playboy Ollie Queen who, stranded on an island in the South Seas, is dubbed “Auu Lanu Lau’Ava” or Green Arrow by the natives. Plus Superman, Lex Luthor, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, the Joker, Captain Marvel, Robin, and many more.

Obsessively researched, the deck unfolds with layers of information, including biographies, origin stories, motivations, secret affiliations, mysterious powers and weaknesses, plus the year and issue each character made its debut. From the essential―the Crisis on Infinite Earths―to the offbeat―how Penguin sold his own memorabilia―it’s a complete history of the DC Comics universe.
