Power Action Punch
About This Vintage Toy
Otto Binder and Al Plastino created Brainiac, and the DC comic the character made its comic debuted on July 1958, in the Action Comics #242 issue. Brainiac (Also known as Vril Dox) is an extraterrestrial android supervillain who operates as one of Superman’s most dangerous enemies. As a frequent adversary of the Justice League, Brainiac is best known as the long-time enemy of Superman’s home planet Krypton. It is often debated that Brainiac may be responsible for Krypton’s planetary destruction.
The Brainiac action figure offered a mechanical “Power Action Computer Kick” feature that activated simulated leg kicking movement when both arms were squeezed together. Although both hands of Brainiac were completely open, the action figure did not allow it to grip or support any weapons or accessories easily. The Brainiac action figure did not include any accessories.
The Brainiac action figure offered 7 points of articulation with the hips, knees, shoulders, and neck. The innovative mechanical “Super Power Action” often created loose joints and limbs over time, making some action figures challenging to stand an offer possibility. Finding an action figure with a perfect “Super Power Action” functionality along with mint condition paint and accessories can fetch a much higher value on the current collectors market.
