Exclusive LEGO DC Super Heroes 2022 minifigure revealed

DK Books has revealed the exclusive minifigure coming in next year’s LEGO DC Character Encyclopedia New Edition.

The updated version of the publisher’s DC Comics character title will include Val-Zod, better known as Earth-2’s Superman. This alternate version of Supes first appeared in comics in 1969, but was only retroactively described as a different take on the character when DC established Earth-2 as a parallel world, distinguishing between modern continuity and characters from the Golden Age of comic books.

It’s the first time this character has appeared in LEGO form, and has seemingly only been made possible by the introduction of a new hairpiece for Captain America (Sam Wilson) in 71031 Marvel Studios, which is used again here.

LEGO DC Character Encyclopedia New Edition 2022

DK’s LEGO DC Character Encyclopedia New Edition runs 200 pages, and will be published on May 3, 2022. It’s the refreshed version of the publisher’s original DC Character Encyclopedia, which includes an exclusive Pirate Batman minifigure, and is now heavily outdated almost six years after its original print run.

The latest edition will presumably feature every LEGO DC minifigure up to at least January 2022, which includes the upcoming range of sets based on Matt Reeves’ The Batman. You can already pre-order the title from Amazon for £16.53.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
