LEGO has been granted for making superheroes figures and playsets of the two biggest comicbookpublishers, Marvel and DC for their new SuperHeroes line.
Earlier today Variety reported LEGO now has the full DC Comics license. In short, expect to see LEGO sets based on their most popular characters including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and villains the Joker, Bane, Harley Quinn and Lex Luthor.
Now I’ve learned the LEGO Super Heroes line will not only include the DC Comics license, but will also include Marvel Comics as well.
As a superhero fan, this announcement blows my mind. It’s awesome, it totally came out of the blue.
The first figures in the superheroline will be:
Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Loki and Black Widow, Wolverine, Magneto, Nick Fury and Deadpool, Spider-Man, and Doctor Octopus.
And from DC:
Batman, Robin, Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Bane, Bruce Wayne, Superman, Lex Luthor and Wonder Woman.
LEGO will unveil the initial wave of sets at Comic Con, the next few days 3,000 Batman and Green Lantern minifigures will be
distributed at the con.

Lego already released sets en minifigures in the past. These are 2 versions of Spider-man, Dr Ocktopus, Multiple versions of Batman, Robin, Joker, Riddler, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Bruce Wayne.
I wonder how much the new figures will differ from the previous releases.
