Marvel Legends Hyperion (Conquering Heroes)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Hyperion.

I don't know anything about him, so I had to look up wiki again. The character is based on Superman. No wonder he seemed oddly familiar. He also has similar powers. The figure is well sculpted. The headsculpt looks like Superman, especially the jaw area. The eyes are really well painted. So too is the logo on his chest. The paint on his forearms however is a little thick. Not sure if there should be buttons on the yellow area of his costume. Most images I've seen online have them. I like his cape. Its unique. The top portion has a Roman kind of look to it. It causes him to lean backwards though. Without it he can stand better.

The cape is made up of two parts.

We can change the direction of his cape. Without the top portion we can turn it upwards as well for even more action poses. I imagine a lot of Superman figures will be jealous.

Hes got great articulation. Theres a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. His cape gets in the way of some poses.

Comparison shots.

This is a really good figure. Can't wait for Sentry which is the running change. Thanks for viewing!
