  • The figures were based solely on Marvel and DC comics, although Mego did make obvious efforts to cater to audiences of the first two Superman movies
  • The first series consisted of Batman, Hulk, Jor-El, Lex Luthor, Robin, Spider-Man, Superman, and Zod
  • The second series added Aquaman, Captain America, Green Goblin, and Wonder Woman
  • Batman, Hulk, Robin, Spider-Man, and Superman were all re-released on second-series cards - Lex, Jor-El, and Zod were not
  • Batman, Hulk, Spider-Man, and Superman were also released in the U.K., Canada, and Italy on demin-style cards
  • Pocket Heroes are solidly constructed - no rubber-bands
  • The U.S. series was title Pocket Super Heroes, while the denim cards are titled just Pocket Heroes
