Yeah,

1-It's over seas junk.
2-It's being sold in the USA at Flea Markets and sidewalk vendor stands.
3-It states that Spiderman, Superman, Hulk, Naruto, Batman, and Ironman are included in the set but only 4 action figures are included.

Who the hell is Naturo?

Besides the ones listed and no action figure shown, where the hell are the Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and wonder twins.

If so, he must have recruited Batman and Spiderman.

Also sold at WalMart where child labor is an issue with the children (YES, CHILDREN) who are handling glues and paints with no ventilation, no breaks, 16 hour days, no school and one meal of boiled rice and vegetables. They sleep at the plant and do not have health care. They are kicked out of the plant once they reach the age of 17 because they are too old. They also are kicked out if they start to show signs of poisoning (slower production, not being able to stay awake, not being able to focus, difficulty breathing and bleeding from the nose). If they are rejected by their boss, the parents will reject them too and won't take them back because they are considered worthless.

*takes deep breath*

But I don't want to get this put into P and R so please don't comment on what I said.

Carry on, folks. Rant over.

1. Package just says Superhero Justice League.
2. Superman and Batman are from the DC Universe, Spidey, Hulk, and Iron Man are from the Marvel Universe.
3. Naruto needs to have his head handed to him by Storm Shadow. I mean, c'mon, what self respecting ninja is going to walk around showing their face while wearing a red outfit??

Normally I don't like to sic lawyers on anyone, but that line-up is so wrong on so many levels, I'm wondering if there is not some copywrite/trademark violations going on.

Spider man and Ironman are moonlighting for the competition.

And I have no idea what is up with the Bat's pose.
