Secret Wars for me! Purely nostalgic reasons. I remember getting the Tower Of Doom, Captain America & Spiderman plus Captain America's turbo cycle. I got them from a cheap £1 store in Scotland. It was all clearance stuff, absolutely loved those figures. I actually don't remember much Super Powers stuff in the UK around that time.
Secret Wars. I loved the lenticular shield things and the figures were cool too. That weird rubbery plastic held up pretty well. Oddly enough, I only had villains. I had the Doom Wheel, Doctor Doom, Doc Ock, Kang, and Magneto.
I did have Super Powers figures too, but those Secret Wars guys looked like they came right out of a comic book. The muscles and the colors were right...at least until the paint wore off in the bath tub.
Once I lost Superman and Batman ' s capes, I didn't really want to play with them anymore.
I prefer Super Powers as well. However, over time their action tightness loosens. Like my flash's (who was taken out of package and then stored) don't work that great anymore. Don't have that issue with Secret Wars.
