MEGO Worlds Greatest Superheroes

Does this bring back memories, but man, whoever wrote this sure didn't have much of a basic knowledge of comic books. There's some stuff that's just embarrassing now. And I'm not talking about the Falcon. I don't know if I saw this commercial, but I would have been outraged at age ten. Good ol' 1975 marketing.

It does show a good selection of the dolls that were out back then. No one I know actually wanted a Tarzan, and yet K-Mart was inexplicably stocked full of them. And poor Mxyzptlk (I can't believe I spelled that correctly without looking, and yet I did), no one wanted his doll either.
