2010 Ata-boy DC Comics Brightest Day Martian Manhunter Magnet (29750DC)

Originally solicited in the July 2010 Diamond Previews for September shipping, the DC Comics Brightest Day 7-Piece Magnet Set doesn't appear on the internet anymore based on my searches. The stores that once solicited it have taken down their and replaced them with individual listings. I have my doubts the full set would have retailed for $35, so I suspect there was more money to be had by piecemealing at an inflated price. Alternately, I just may not care about magnets for the covers to Brightest Day #0 or the second issue. Then again, maybe somebody just realized that Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, Firestorm, Hawkman and Hawkgirl were all in their Pre-Brightest Day costumes. Regardless, I'm happy to be able to choose only the ones I want, even if I can't choose to turn down J'Onn's stoopid collar. Make your own choices through the links provided, while I roll out the description from Super Hero Stuff...

Martian Manhunter is just a big, lost, little puppy. Wait, that doesn't make any sense, but poor Martian Manhunter has had his story retconned so many times that we were hoping that nobody would be the wiser. Is he waiting for his friends to come and get him, ET style? Is he the president of Mars, has he been ripped through time, is he just a clone? Where we stop, nobody knows! Well, at least with this three and a half inch high by two and a half inch wide magnet, you'll be able to provoke a discussion! Remember; the Manhunter has an aversion to fire(sometimes?) so you may want to keep him close to the 'fridge!

I managed to get mine for $3.99, see?

YES. It is the Magnet of Awesomeness!!! Kneel before it!!!

The red pie symbol bugs me more than the collar, but still, this inspires me to move the fridge into my room.

You know, I totally glossed over the red pie, mostly because of the collar and the tighter than normal boot-cuffs... throws off the whole feng shui.
