In the lead-up to the release of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’re guaranteed to see a big load of shiny toys, masks, posters and underpants being paraded as the ‘must buy’ items for superhero fans. Mattel’s new action figures are worth taking a look at, but for all the wrong reasons.

The toy manufacturer’s made the odd decision of equipping Superman with wings. Seriously, the guy looks like a alien/fly hybrid. Mattel's Batman toy is arguably even worse.
