Bandai Namco : DC Super Heroes Arcade Cards



Bandai Namco : DC Super Heroes Arcade

DC Super Heroes is a card and coin-pusher arcade manufactured by Andamiro and marketed by Bandai Namco. The game dispenses collectible trading cards featuring DC Comics heroes and villains. Four different series have been released; each 16-card series features the same roster.

Each box contains 150 rigid plastic cards. Each measures approximately 2.1 x 3.4 inches, smaller than a standard trading card. "Super Hero" and "Super Villain" card backs feature biographical information. Team "Bonus" card backs depict a DC Comics logo. Card backs may contain third-party aftermarket stamps or barcodes. Various card backs contain branding information from regional distributors and arcade venues.


Series 1 of DC Super Heroes was released in February 2017. The Harley Quinn images were penciled by José Luis García-López and inked by Joe Rubinstein for the 2009–10 DC Comics Official Style Guide. The remaining character images in Series 1 are from the 1982 DC Comics Style Guide penciled by José Luis García-López and inked by Dick Giordano.
