1996 Fleer/SkyBox : DC Outburst: Firepower

"Feel Them All For The First Time!"

Fleer/SkyBox released the DC Outburst: Firepower trading card series in February 1996. The set was advertised as "DC Comics' First Totally Embossed Trading Card Set." The series is comprised of 80 base cards, 20 "Maximum Firepower" inserts, and 2 "HoloBurst" chase cards. DC Outburst: Firepower was originally intended to be a trading card game that would later be reworked as the DC OverPower CCG.
Superman is featured on eight different cards in this series, appearing on four base cards. The backs of the base cards contain a profile entry from the "Oracle Database."
There are 20 foil-stamped "Maximum Firepower" cards inserted in approximately 2:3 packs.
Superman appears on four different "Maximum Firepower" cards.
There are two "HoloBurst" inserts that feature a holographic image of Superman or Batman. The odds of finding a "HoloBurst" hologram are approximately 1:36 packs. The Superman "HoloBurst" was illustrated by Rod Whigham. The hologram was colored by Stu Suchit and American Bank Note.

Superman also appears on an unnumbered promo card for the series. An uncut 5x7 inch 4-card promo sheet was distributed to dealers. 

Artwork from DC Outburst: Firepower was also used in the DC Super Heroes trading card series from Vieníssima in the Argentine Republic.

The checklist consists of 80 base cards, 20 "Maximum Firepower" inserts, and 2 "HoloBurst" chase cards.
