Superman vs Power Armor Lex 6862

You may find this hard to believe, but growing up I was a huge comic book fan.  Oddly enough I was more of a DC fan than Marvel.  I still loved Spiderman, the X-men, the Avengers, and especially Iron Man, but I was really a big Justice League of America fan.  It was a great comic.  You got all the great DC heroes all in one book.  I think that's my one complaint with Lego's DC Universe it's all Superman and Batman centric, but you do have some great anncillary characters that come with a few of these sets.  This set is one I've had my eye on for some time and what better time to pick it up than when there's a sale.  Not only that, but this is the only current set with the Superman in classic costume and you get Lex Luthor and Wonder Woman to boot!  Plus Lex's Power Armor is pretty kick ass.
I've never picked up or seen one of Lego's Hero Factory kits, but I'd have to assume that alot of the components are the same or similar.
The hands on the power armor are pretty great.
As is the Krytonite Gun on the right arm.
Lex looks pretty bad ass sitting behind the controls.
A little less bad ass on his own though.  I think this really could be anybody.  Business suit guy? Too bad they didn't take advantage and put Lex in his personal body armor from say like the Super Powers days.
Wonder Woman is all around great.  I'm curious if we're going to get to see her in her own set or another costume.
She comes with two faces to choose from too.
This is a great Superman Minifigure.  The three new movie tie-in sets all feature him in his movie costume, but I think this one takes the cake with it's bright colors.
Superman also comes with another face.
Over all a great little set.
