What's Buzz-worthy: This release is solid and it's a colorful and exciting rip that follows Cryptozoic's typical array of inclusions but feels more energetic. Perhaps that's in part because the series is a little more bright and colorful than others but maybe that's also because these packs can also include one of the biggest autographs in the hobby right now that can pay for a case all at once. (And she signed three different cards, a bigger plus.) The autograph list here is a deep one and there are a number of other hits and inserts that are typical of those done with other releases from the company but they feel interesting here. This box included one of the memorabilia cards for the lead character -- a card that can sell for around $40 -- and an inscribed auto from one of its villains (it looks like most but not all are inscribed like this). This is a very solid box -- especially when you consider that STR PWR insert is one in 480 packs and the only thing rarer than that parallel is the 1/1 version -- and yet they can still deliver better than this one.
