Each card panel depicts a popular hero, villain, or a classic DC Comics cover. The card series is divided into four different subsets: Great Heroes, Great Villains, Great Teams, or Great Moments in Comics. Many of the character images are from the 1982 DC Comics Style Guide penciled by José Luis García-López and inked by Dick Giordano.
