I also used to scratch my head at these toys that gave the heroes vehicles/powers that they didn't have in the comics.

My favorite was the Hulk on a motorcycle. Sure, makes all the sense in the world.

I had fun with the Energized Spiderman as a kid, but looking back at this line, I have to admit they were rather cheesy.

Completely non-posable, with powers based around lights and a "winch". Except for Supes, for some reason he carried around a giant Kryptonite rock. That can't be good for ya. :)
