Marvel Comics characters

The World's Greatest Super-Heroes! was a line of action figures made by Mego[1] beginning in 1972, predating the Super Friends series by a year, and no doubt a major kickoff for the show, which would become so popular on Saturday mornings not long later.

The action figures included in this set were both DC Comics characters and Marvel Comics characters. There were also several playsets and vehicles that were made available with the line. Today, these toys are very popular collectibles which gave rise to many other action figure lines from other toy companies, namely the Super Powers Collection from Kenner.

In 2010, Mattel revisited the line, releasing a new wave of figures called "Retro-Action Superheroes," featuring the classic Mego designs, complete with removable costumes. More recently, Figures Toy Company also made new figures for the line.
