Overview

Previous to this line, Mattel had a Batman line, which consisted mostly of Batman figures, and a rare few villains. At some point they acquired the license to Superman and his villains, and a new line was launched with new sculptors (The Four Horsemen), better articulation and a new focus. Each wave alternately focused on Batman or Superman. In 2007 Mattel acquired the license to the DC Universe as a whole, and the DCSH line was relaunched as DC Universe Classics with nearly any figure from an DC Comics book as fair game.

For being somewhat limited in its scope, DCSH was a really good line, it didn't have quite enough villains, but what line does? (DCUC) The sculpting by The Four Horsemen is excellent, and provides a very cohesive look over the entire line and its successor, DCUC.
