Back at New York Comic Con 2010, I talked about an amazing statue I found from DC Direct in my vlog. Lo and behold, at the end of my video I unveiled a gift from the company – that same statue I had featured in the video. And what was that statue of, you might ask? A statue of Muhammad Ali boxing with Superman!
That statue is pretty awesome on its own, but when you learn about the history behind it, you get a whole new appreciation for the insanity behind it. In this Fight Nerd Flashback, we take a look at why DC Comics created a comic about the greatest heavyweight boxing champ of all time duking it out with “The Man of Steel”, review the statue, and ask some pro MMA fighters and coaches for their opinion on who wins this battle for the ages!
If you want to learn more about the statue, head to DC Direct’s website, or check out your favorite toy and comic suppliers site or shop. If you want to buy the deluxe edition of the “Superman vs. Muhammad Ali” comic book from Amazon.com head to this link over here, and this link for the Superman vs Muhammad Ali Statue!
