Iron Man is easily the best of the three, I think. Although maybe that's just because he's got the least human-like face, so looks a little more what we're used to between Bionicle and Hero Factory. Still, they're all pretty awesome!

Looking for a Bionicle Beanie. Black one with the symbol on it. The one I had since childhood was lost at sea (no joke). Please let me know if you have one. Will purchase/trade.

The Iron Man set looks the best out of these three, IMO. The other two just don't look good to me. (I do like Captain America's shield though.)

I've seen them, and they all look kind of "Meh!".Exept for Iron Man; he doesn't look great, but the "mechenical" look that these pieces give them is fitting with Iron Man.

Iron Man is the highlight of this wave. His arms look all weird, though ... they should have armored the lower arms, and not made them so stumpy. I'm liking the weapon.Captain America looks like a gladiator/football player running though a paint factory. Red, white, and blue do not go together, and why the random gunmetal?Hulk makes me want to vomit. The only redeeming quality about him is his huge chest armor.

I actually got to see some of these sets at Comic Con over the summer. Iron Man is by far the best looking, and the worst looking one would have to be the Hulk, who looks terrible from behind.

I'm really liking the gold pieces on Iron Man. The bulky chest armor on the Hulk looks a bit over-the-top to me. The sets as a whole are uninteresting, but the pieces are intriguing.

Ooh... um... ok. Here goes.iron man, looks decent, arms could be reworked. but pretty nice.Captain America. Um. Yikes. He isn't supposed to be that bulky. Should've h3en made smaller, with parts in the other two.Hulk. That was a bad choice for a one piece hand. The lower legs should've been bulkier.

Hulk's pants are not purple. Lost interest...Cap looks awkward, and Iron Man seems decent at least. Maybe cause of the massive cannon on his shoulder.

Other than the colors of the Hulk set, he's my second-favorite of these three after Iron Man. Captain America's weird shoulder armor just makes no sense to me. Meanwhile, Hulk's brutish proportions are very nice, although I wish he had fingers and longer forearms.Of the DC heroes, Batman was my favorite for looking the least robotic of the three. Of the Marvel ones, Iron Man's my favorite because he looks very robotic, and on him it makes much more sense than on Green Lantern, Joker, or Captain America.

I've been wondering, why do Cap and Hulk have big (very big in Cap's case) silver shoulders? It looks out of place on Hulk and way too big on Cap.

In Hulk's case, at least, it's almost certainly because they only had a budget for a certain number of parts in new colors for this series. Since the Superheroes (at least, the DC ones) are all said to be wearing "power armor" to explain their slightly-robotic look, silver shoulders on Hulk doesn't seem too out of place, although he needs armor least of all of them.In Cap's, again, power armor, but I'm not fond of it because it is big and blocky, even compared to the stylishly-buff Green Lantern set.

I wonder if Cap can run in that stuff.

Y'know, maybe the silver armor represents Bruce Banner's shirt being torn when he undergoes his transformation into the 'big green machine'.

Why do you think LEGO CAPTAIN AMERICA looks bad, I think he looks great there are lots of blue, white, and red pieces in there it has to be a dream come true for a moc that would not want to buy so many things. Plus the shield ROCKS!

I don't think anyone is debating the part potential. It's the color scheme - not to mention those ridiculous gunmetal shoulder pads. I'm sure it'll be a goldmine for MOCists - which is why I'll probably get him, or at least the parts that interest me - but as a set, the general consensus is that he looks hideous.

That is true I remember the glatorian head piece it just looked like a transparent Iron man piece.
