Super Powers: Apokolips Diorama

Apokolips is the homeworld of Darkseid. From there, Darkseid plots the conquest of the universe through the acquisition of the Anti-Life Equation. Darkseid is considered to be not only the ruler of his people but also a god! He is perpetually opposed by the warriors of New Genesis. Despite this he has conquered a number of planets, creating an empire with Apokolips as the throne world.

Today, a comic scene of Darkseid and his inner circle on the planet Apokolips is being recreated using an Ultarama Display System and Kenner Super Powers Collection action figures. A cartoon cell from Super Powers: Galactic Guardians is used as the background image. Lets take a look at the original image and compare it to the recreation...


Here is a gallery of shots of the new diorama:


The great Jack Kirby was allowed to redesign his iconic characters for the Super Powers line, thereby earning some much needed income from royalties generated from the produced action figures! Here is another original drawing of the redesigns by the King himself!

Here are the images used to make the diorama for your use:

    1. Thanks! I always wanted to dipsplay my Fourth World Super Powers Collection figures on an Apokolips diorama, but it took me a while to find just the right background images. With this one and the Armegetto backdrop I think I have found them!

    1. I do have other ultarama displays for the other figures in the collection. I don't have set up at the moment, but I have blogged about them in the past.
