Demonically Posessed! Bootleg Superman Action Figure :: Countdown to Halloween 2014

Even Superman himself can't see through this bootleg for all the lead in the paint!

Okay, I don't know for certain this derpy Superman bootleg has unsafe amounts of lead in it, but I can say I feel stupider since bringing it into the house.

I found this creepy Superman in a box of free toys someone had left out on the curb after a garage sale. I'm pretty sure there are at least a few horror movies that started that way.

Forget Pennywise, THIS guy is likely to kill me in my sleep!

What amazes me about this guy is that he appears to be an original creation designed to emulate (but not directly copy) the 6"ish Fisher-Price superhero figures that were around a few years back.

Bootleg Superman has no markings whatsoever, so I have no way of knowing when he was made, and clearly whoever is responsible wanted no credit for their work. Shocking, I know.

    1. Some might argue the New52 is demonically possessed too.

    1. The thing about some bootlegs is that they came from the factory with this level of wear - not sure if anyone actually played with it (or fought it off) to get it this roughed up!
