Strict definition of pastiche leans more towards homage than parody; the Squadron Sinister's first appearance was definitely a group of vicious super-powered types so I wouldn't term it parody (same goes for Supreme). In any event though, its good to see them in 6" action figure form. I prefer the original Whizzer's yellow and blue outfit, and would love to see the Nighthawk from 2003 Supreme Power. I've heard there are no plans to bring in Zarda/Power Princess, which I'd like to see too. Passing on this set however.

Still a good starting point for Yellowjacket...

The first time I really put it together that the Squadron was a JLA homage was in an ad for the 80s 12 issue maxi series. The ad in question had the team all in silhouettes so you couldn't make out the SS members. The blacked out forms, I'm sure by design, looked pretty much exactly like the key members of the Justice League.

I knew of the Squadron Supreme and I knew it was based on the JLA but didn't know the specifics but just now reading about it it seems most people in the industry refer to SS as Pastiche rather than Homage. Where Homage imitates to pay honor to something Pastiche is usually done as parody. That's probably splitting hairs but even though I wasn't familiar with the specifics it always seemed to me that the SS was done more as straight in your face copies of the JLA to kind of minimalize it's significance and making SS like a running joke. Maybe that's just my take but it seems like most pros in the business see them as intentional cheap imitations. That's just what I got from reading about it's origins. Pastiche is used quite a bit more often than the word Homage in each character's description.

I actually had totally forgotten about this 2 pack, I had fun re-looking at this and remembering I want it, nice to get Blur, and happy to get another Nighthawk that is a totally different person, it also looks far better. I might have just missed this going up for order had nobody reminded me Ha!

On the nose? Dude Marvel makes it no secret that this is a Justice League homage. Not that DC hasn't done it themselves. It's a bit of friendly rivalry.

My teenage mind actually entertained the idea that Marvel was somehow going to publish a JLA story haha.

Are they really called "Hawkrangs"? Because that seems a little too on the nose. Also. any rumors about Power Princess yet? I don't see any reason to buy the first 2 sets if she's not coming.

I do like these Squadron sets. Not my preference for looks but for this version they are all sharp figures so far. Be curios how they handle getting Power Princess to us, whether it be in a 2 pack or single.

On a related note, I was hesitant at first to get the first set since Hyperion was a minor character and although I hated the body he was on, I did t need two Hypes in my collection. But I'm weak so I grabbed the set and was blown away by how much better the new Hyperion is. So my mild buyers remorse turned into one of my favorite releases from this year

I'm almost considering picking this up for parts. I'm trying to build a custom Toxin on the Vulcan body and Nighthawk FINALLY gives us some all black lower legs and arms for that mold. Now I have to decide do I want to pick up Vulcan, Corsair, Black Panther and Nighthawk to minimize the amount of painting I have to do or do I just wait until Hasbro someday gives us a Mulligan Toxin. Choices choices choices.

Also was there supposed to be another Target exclusive this week? This Thursday is the last one of June.
